The ’80s are widely seen as one of horror’s best decades, but given the amount of classics that came out, many are bound to be left in the dust and lost to time. That’s what makes 1984’s Sole Survivor such a fascinating watch. Where most of this decade’s horror films vowed to gross audiences out with blood and gore, this one opts to build a nice chilly atmosphere, one ripe for a fantastic ghost story, and that’s exactly what it accomplishes. If you’re looking for an eerie ’80s viewing that combines old-school ’60s supernatural elements, the slick visual sensibilities of ’80s horror movies, and some of the tragedy that you might find in a Stephen King novel, then Sole Survivor is the ultimate chiller for you.
Soul Survivor is a perfect blend of ’80s horror and atmospheric ghost stories that any Stephen King fan will enjoy.
