11 Obscure Movies From The '80s Your Parents May Not Have Told You About

Totally tubular.

Posted on

The farther we get from the movies made in the 1980s, the more evident it becomes that some of them were so bad, they were good. While a good chunk became cult classics, others simply faded away into obscurity...until now.


Here's a list of 11 movies you may or may not have known about, but are totally worth at least one watch in your lifetime.

1. Teen Witch

Trans World Entertainment (TWE) / Via

You can thank me later after watching the infamous rap battle scene. It's about a girl who doesn't know she has superpowers until she learns to harness it and use it for good.


6. Big Top Pee-Wee

Paramount Pictures / Via

Most people know about Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, but have you seen this one? It's just as fun, but set in a circus. Look out for Benicio del Toro playing Duke the dog-faced boy.


10. Just One of the Guys

Columbia Pictures Corporation / Via

A girl goes undercover as a dude to get a bitchin' internship. Hilarity ensues. It's interesting to see how gender played into films 30 years ago.

11. License to Drive

Twentieth Century Fox / Via

Another Corey-Corey hit. This one also stars a super young Heather Graham. Corey fails his driver's test and steals his parents' car for a night on the town.
