Horror movies 1987-1989 ranked

I don’t think there’s a three year span that produced more horror movies than 1987-1989. Letterboxd/tmdb and I disagree on some of the release dates, but it’s not like I just made ‘em up. I usually recorded release dates from the movie's credits or a reliable reference book. I included a handful of very borderline horror movies (including a certain high school body count black comedy). Other notable three year spans for horror production: 1971-1973 and 2005-2007.
