Oh, yes... the 80's did happen, as improbable as they sound now. And some of the most memorable horror films came out during that decade, to prove that it happened, and that it wasn't just a bad national dream. This set of cards, "Fright Flicks" was made by Topps and featured scenes from select scary movies of the period:
Alien and Aliens
An American Werewolf In London
Day Of The Dead
Nightmare on Elm Street 1, 2 and 3
Poltergeist 1 and 2
Vengence: The Demon
On the back of each card the movie was identified and there was a short spooky event that left for you to decide if it ever took place. In answer to the question "did it happen?" the stock answer is: No. Sorry to disappoint you.
Now, I don't have the complete set, only a few packs as a matter of fact. But, I thought it might be nice to post what I do have for you to enjoy, and groan over the corny captions. I'll be bringing more in subsequent posts, and, I might add, in no particular order; with a few of my own captions, which are probably about as corny as the originals.
