Can You Name These 1980s Movies From Their Taglines?

30 classic movies from the 1980s that you no doubt know, but can you name them from their taglines alone?
There's an art to forming the perfect movie tagline. A short sentence or two that encapsulates the movie it's attached to, setting the scene and selling the picture to the potential audience. If the tagline does its job then if we hear it many, many years later we will recall the film it's from. Case in point, "In space, no one can hear you scream". Accompanying the 1979 film Alien, it's arguably the perfect tagline, conjouring a sense of isolation, dread and menace in just eight words.

We've rounded-up 30 taglines all taken from classic 1980s movies. Films you no doubt know but are you able to name them from their taglines alone? There are no prizes, it's just for entertainment, and you'll find a link to the answers at the very bottom of the page. Of course, you could go looking on the internet for clues but where's the fun in that?
