Two horror movies I saw glimpses of years ago...but donít know the name (early 1980s)

So when I was little, my parents sometimes watched horrors and I sometimes snuck and saw some of it, happened through the room, or occasionally saw more than a little...these two I vaguely remember and I am hoping someone out there can settle my mind (because it grinds away at these both sometimes):

1) this movie I remember more of - a guy (protagonist) - in a padded room and people are biting him. Lots of people biting him and it is awful. They are not zombies, but something is wrong with them (obviously). The movie ends with this guy, now covered in bloodied bandages, coming down a hospital hallway. This woman is with him (he is leaning heavily on her) and they go to the nursery to save a baby. Almost as soon as they get the baby out and walk away, all of the other babies start crying - they are poisoned.

2) this one I have almost no memories, so if someone gets it, well done you!
- there are lots of scenes of storm clouds racing across the sky, and there is a beach
-something terrible is in the storm - people get killed
- it ends with - creatures - tribal in nature with big masks dancing around a bonfire and one in silhouette - this one may be titled something like ďWhen the Strangers CallĒ

Okay Dopers! Letís see if you can solve these old mysteries for me...and...GO!

Don't know, but I'd watch both of those, or drink what you were drinkin'. Anticipating the answer....

Not Jacobís Ladder - way earlier than that - 1985 or earlier.
