One Choice: ’80s Slasher Movie Sequels

Inspired by the popular online game that asks people to choose one movie from a group of four, One Choice… is pretty much the same game. Readers will be given four similar movies and asked to choose one. Now here’s the catch, the other three movies will be gone forever, wiped from your brain as if they never existed. Are you ready to theoretically live in a world where you have The Empire Strikes Back but not Star Wars or Return of the Jedi? What about the 1989 Batman movie but not Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight? The choice is yours, screenager, so choose wisely.

Earlier this month, I gave you four horror movies to choose one from, but all you guys really wanted was to choose between Jason or Freddy. So, here we go, but with a twist. Here are four slasher sequels of equal quality (according to Sailor Monsoon). Good luck.

Here are the 4 Movies:

Psycho II (1983)

Cast: Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, and Meg Tilly

Synopsis: After twenty-two years of psychiatric care, Norman Bates attempts to return to a life of solitude, but the specters of his crimes – and his mother – continue to haunt him.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)

Cast: Ted White, Corey Feldman, and Kimberly Beck

Synopsis: After being announced dead and taken to a morgue, Jason Voorhees spontaneously revives, escapes from the hospital, and stalks a group of friends renting a house in the countryside near Crystal Lake.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)

Cast: Dennis Hopper, Caroline Williams, and Jim Siedow

Synopsis: A radio host is victimized by the cannibal family as a former Texas Marshall hunts them.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

Cast: Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, and Craig Wasson

Synopsis: A psychiatrist familiar with knife-wielding dream demon Freddy Krueger helps teens at a mental hospital battle the killer who is invading their dreams.

So, will it be Psycho II, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, or A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors? It’s time to choose. What will be your One Choice?
