The latest episode of the 80s Horror Memories docu-series categorizes The Terminator as a slasher movie. Check it out!

JoBlo.com recently launched a new weekly documentary series called 80s Horror Memories, where each year of the 1980s has five episodes dedicated to it. Looking back at 1980, we discussed Maniac, Dressed to Kill, AlligatorFriday the 13thThe ShiningProm Night, and The Fog. The second five episodes were a journey through 1981, covering The Funhouse, The Burning, Friday the 13th Part 2, My Bloody ValentineHalloween IIThe Evil DeadThe Howling, and An American Werewolf in London, as well as the careers of horror hosts Elvira and Joe Bob Briggs. The next five were, of course, all about movies that came out in 1982: Conan the BarbarianThe ThingHalloween III: Season of the Witch, and Poltergeist, with an examination of the short-lived 3-D boom along the way. For 1983, we talked about a trio of Stephen King adaptations, Jaws 3-DSleepaway Camp, the rise of TV horror anthologies, and Psycho II. With our first 1984 episode, we talked about the creation of the PG-13 rating. Now, with the latest episode of the show, we’re categorizing James Cameron’s The Terminator as a slasher movie. To hear all about it, check out the video embedded above!

New episodes of 80s Horror Memories will be released through the YouTube channel JoBlo Horror Originals every Monday. 

Here’s the info on 80s Horror MemoriesIt’s been over 40 years since the decade that shaped the horror movie industry began and having lived through most of those years personally, we at JoBlo/Arrow in the Head have decided to create a 10-part documentary series in which not only cover every nook and cranny of the biggest horror themes from 1980 to 1989 but also what was happening in the world at the time. Join us as we walk down Horror Memory Lane!

And here’s the info on this particular episode: If there was one star who helped to define the 80s for us as movie fans, it was Arnold Schwarzenegger, and there’s one of his genre-defining movies in particular that you could argue is a slasher, the James Cameron classic, The Terminator. So, join us as we go back in time, fully clothed, ideally and hunt down the key to humanity’s future salvation in the horror slasher… or is it? – The Terminator on our 80’s Horror Memories.

This episode of 80s Horror Memories was written by Adam Walton, narrated by Tyler Nichols, edited by Adam Walton, produced by Berge Garabedian and John Fallon, co-produced by Mike Conway, and executive-produced by Berge Garabedian.
