Great Sci-fi Films From The '80s You Should Rewatch

Total Film Logo By Rich Knight of Total Film | Slide 1 of 12:            One thing I love about sci-fi movies from the past is just how each decade envisioned the future. The ‘50s had a lot of flying saucers, and the ‘60s and ‘70s dialed it back a bit, featuring a lot less theremin and a bit more paranoia. It was also a very good time for Godzilla. But ‘80s sci-fi, like The Running Man, was a lot darker. There was almost an apocalyptic tone to some of the best sci-fi movies of the ‘80s, which is why I find the decade so fascinating.                                        Sure, there were some fun ‘80s sci-fi films, like Short Circuit, and there are even some fun ones on this list. But a lot of the best ‘80s sci-fi flicks were super grim. Hop in the DeLorean, and read all about them.
