EP 153 - TPUTS SUMMER TOP 10 80's EDITION - 1985

Welcome to Episode 153 of the Podcast Under the Stairs.

Join your host Duncan Under The Stairs discussing all things Horror on The Podcast Under the Stairs.

Summer has arrived at last Under the Stairs which means our 5th annual Top 10 series of shows has come to take you through those uncomfortably humid days with a hearty dose of horror!!

I am not one to be accused of short changing listeners or setting easy goals either which makes this years Top 10 series very special indeed!! Over the next 10 episodes in the series we will count down each year in the decade known as the 80's with the mission statement of creating the definitive Top 10 list of movies in the decade, but with a little TPUTS twist if you will. 

Noah's Ark rules will mean that each year will be represented in the creation of the list and will force myself and my guests to short list each year in the decade from 10 movies to 2!! That's right...only 2 movies from each year can go through which means that this list can/might & will be unlike any Top 10 list of 80's horror movies created on a podcast!!

On this episode my guests are Gary Hill & Ricky Morgan and we are looking at 10 movies from 1985 with mini reviews of Demons, Re-Animator, Day of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead, Silver Bullet, Fright Night, Phenomena, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, Friday the 13th (Part 5) A New Beginning & Cat's Eye
