The 1990’s gave us Grunge, Bill Clinton, the first Tech Bubble, and real ecstasy. As far as Horror movies go, however, films produced in the 90’s were pretty piss-poor—for the most part.
Yesterday, I dropped the first half of my list: 10 Awesome 90’s Horror Movies, highlighting a few exceptions to the rule: Genre films that kicked ass then and still carry substantial weight today.
After the jump, you can read Part 2.
In the 1990’s, we said goodbye to Bill Cosby Sweaters, cassette tapes, Reaganomics, Aqua Net Hairspray, Swatch Watches, and Mullets. We also said goodbye to what many consider a Golden Age of Horror, one that started with The Shining, included Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, and wrapped up with Pet Sematary.
By most accounts, on the other hand, the 1990’s was a pretty sad period for Horror movies as the industry struggled to find a successful medium outside of the now-trite slasher formula. While no one will ever refer to the 90’s as a “Golden Age” for Horror, there were some solid stand-outs.
