The Deadly Spawn (1983)
The plot is as minimal as can be. Aliens from outer space are spawning in a families basement. First dad will have his head eaten. Next mom will have her face ripped off. Lucky for us the real man of the house is an eleven year old monster movie fanatic. This kid is awesome! His room is plastered with posters for classic monster movies and he spends most of his time pulling pranks on his family. Monster-kids always lighten up any 80's horror movie for me. Perhaps because I can relate to it. I also drove my parents crazy by running around my house in gory Halloween masks all year long.
Monster On The Campus, The Green Slime, King Kong etc. They even manage to mention The Mole People and It The Terror From Beyond Space. A must see for all gore-freaks born in the 80's.
