Default 1980's puppet movies are f*cking horrifying









Garbage pail kids

Gremlins

Dark Crystal

Chuckie

The list goes on. Why are 80's puppets so f*cking scary? To this day I get very uncomfortable watching them. It's not jump-scary at all, but the creep factor for me is just off the charts. Anybody else creeped out by the puppet effects in 80's movies?
