Several really great horror movies turn 30 this year.
What was the very best year for the horror genre? That’s up for debate, but 1987 was damn sure a good one. In a single calendar year, we saw the releases of Hellraiser, Predator, Evil Dead 2, The Monster Squad, A Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors and The Lost Boys!
Other horror favorites released in 1987 include Near Dark, Creepshow 2, The Gate, Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste and John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness.
So yeah, it was one hell of a year. And Los Angeles’ Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the films of 1987 with new exhibit “30 Years Later,” which had its opening reception this past weekend. The featured pieces are now up for viewing and purchase on the gallery’s website, and they include tributes to many of the aforementioned horror classics.
Check out our favorite highlights below!
“30 Years Later” will be on display through August 12 at Gallery 1988. You’ll find the gallery on 7308 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, Calfornia.
