8. Alone in the Dark (1982)

Not the Uwe Boll snoozer from 2005. This is the 1982 golden age classic from director Jack Sholder. Nothing says “slasher” like Donald Pleasence playing a psychiatrist hunting down escaped patients played by Martin Landau and Jack Palance. This one’s a bit tough to find, but so worth the time and trouble to track it down. -James Jay Edwards
