A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Lost Boys, Hocus Pocus and Beetlejuice are perfect for this time of year. Pick your double-feature this weekend at the drive-in.

The internet lists of the best horror movies of the 80s are diverse, arbitrary and honestly, too long to scroll through page after page. I'm betting you have your favorites too. In deciding the best, each of these four movies has a place in the conversation.

A Nightmare on Elm Street | 1984

One, Two, Freddy's Coming For You

Three, Four Better Lock Your Door

Five, Six Grab A Crucifix

Nine, Ten Never Sleep Again

Thirty-six years later: goosebumps.

The Lost Boys | 1987

Long before Twilight, this film made vampires cool. "You wait 'til mom finds out."

Beetlejuice | 1988

"It's showtime." Michael Keaton shines in this comedy about a dead couple with the problem of the living haunting their former house.

Hocus Pocus | 1993

OK, so it's not an 80s film, but it is a funny Halloween Disney movie.

So, what's it gonna be play it for laughs or straight-up scared? See them all at the Capri Drive-In theater, Friday 10/2- Sunday 10/4.
