10. Final Destination 2
The characters were much more likable and the filmmakers really amped up the deaths in this film. By far my favorite of the franchise.
9. Silent Night, Deadly Night 5 – The Toy Maker
Mickey Rooney in a Santa costume. Need I say more?
8. Saw 2
The series started to lose me after a while, but Saw 2 is not only my favorite of the franchise, but also a great sequel. Clever death traps and a twist to die for along with a scene that will leave you on pins and “needles.”
7. Bride of Chucky
Bride of Chucky is the point in the series when our little friend turns up the humor. There was always something to chuckle about seeing a creepy doll running around, but now we are really supposed to laugh. Going from straight horror in the first half the the series to horror-comedy in this one was a big risk. And it paid off.
6. Nightmare on Elm Street 3 – Dream Warriors
At first I wasn’t a fan. Not at all. I wanted the third part in the series to stick with kids in their neighborhood. But, after watching a few more times i started to realize what I was missing. This film takes on something new without going too far.
5. Friday the 13th Part 7 – New Blood
Favorite sequel from the Friday The 13th series. Great death scenes. and a great final girl. not to mention the great hair!
4. Poltergeist 3
I will just say it: I love this film. I know many of you out there disagree, but I can’t help myself. Maybe it’s just the filmmaker in me, but I get excited seeing the mirror effects within this movie. And don’t tell anyone, but i like all the, “Carol Anne” lines.
3. Halloween 2 (Rob Zombie)
This film is beautifully shot from beginning to end. Rob Zombie was very reluctant to make another Halloween, but after a little coxing and then taking the script into his own hands, he was able to come up with a very compelling story and great looking piece.
2. Scream 2
One of the greatest sequels from one of the greatest horror franchises of all time. This movie not only holds its own against the original Scream, destroys the sequels that follow. Great twist, great characters, great movie.
1. The Devils Rejects
Another Rob Zombie film and another great sequel. This gritty film looks amazing with the desert backdrop and warm colors. We follow the creepy and cruel Firefly family throughout the film and watch brutal murder after murder. The cinematography along with the soundtrack gives this film a boost over others.
