TV Horror Movies from 60s & 70s
Back in the s, made-for-TV horror movies were a genre unto themselves. Today, when we think of made-for-TV horror movies, we think of films with titles like Sharknado , Lavalantula, Piranhaconda, or beasts like the Whalewolf, Mechashark , or Crocosaurus. For this list, we chose movies that aired as stand-alone films, or in two-parts. Anything longer than two-parts is not eligible for this list. Expect minor spoilers.
The s was a great decade for the horror genre. Sixties' horror films pioneered many innovations, such as the introduction of copious gore, nonlinear plots, and realistic storylines. The s marked the decline of traditional Hollywood, and the rise of independent filmmakers. Radicalism found its way into cinema, and nowhere was it more pronounced than in horror. The old guard monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein's monster gave way to new types of monsters like Norman Bates and flesh-eating zombies.
Sign in. Beginning in the s through its heyday in the s made-for-TV horror movies were a genre unto themselves. Made specifically for the small screen what these humble movies lacked in budget, they made up for in other ways. They served as a lucrative genre for Stars of yesterday as well young as up and coming Stars, Producers and Directors. Many of these treasures are still highly watchable, memorable, and have even enjoyed big budget remakes. There's something about made for TV movies of the 70s and 80s that I just love.
In the past decade or two, the television landscape has changed dramatically.

Tobe Hooper directs this stellar pic about a writer who heads back to his native stomping grounds to draw inspiration from a local haunted house. The eerie moments of the flick manage to pass the test of time, even if the overall film feels a bit dated. This is, hands down, one of the best horror pieces to ever arrive on the small screen. It fits well, and the feature as a whole really captures the terrors of the road with perfection. So, if you want to see what a raw Spielberg can do with a brilliant performer, a concept far ahead of its time and a wide open expanse of highway, look into DUEL.
