    Why do low budget horror films from the 80s look so much better than the low budget crap of today? No thanks.

      80’s was lightening in a bottle, hun.

      Something about those old cameras despite being of a lower quality look much better.

      Lots of reasons: 80s low budget films were still shot on 16mm, which, generally, has a warmer look and feel (look at the original Evil Dead on blu for a great example of this — the fall foliage looks incredible, like a fucking Brakhage movie). More importantly, the nature of chemical alteration made it difficult for amateur filmmakers to completely fuck up the look of their movies through abuse of power-window’ed color correction, tone-shifting, etc. HD’s crisp, but very difficult to make look “natural” in the same way. Correction, not difficult, since filmmakers could always use the old methods (across the board shifts in relative color values) rather than the desaturate the reds in the flesh tones but then oversaturate the reds on the shirt approach many hack editors/colorists use.
