Scene from Alone in the Dark

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
