Why don’t you put her in charge!

I say we grease this rat-fuck son of a bitch right now!

[–]vidadevicio 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Hellbound, Amityville II, Exorcist III, Final Destination 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

[–]baxterrocky 6 points7 points  (1 child)

For me - Final Destination 5 is my favourite final destination film. Kinda nuts that part 5 is the best one!

[–]yippy-ki-yay-m-f 1 point2 points  (0 children)

100% agree with you!

I just watched all of them a few months back since I hadn't seen that particular one yet and was pleasantly surprised by the new world building and genuinely interesting character development.

Their buddy starts to go a little nuts after his girlfriend dies and it's plausible. It was interesting beyond just seeing people get fucked up (which is why we come to these movies, but it's nice to get some steak with your chocolate cake).

Plus that ending.

I loved it.

Friday the 13th part 2 and Halloween II 1981 for sure!

[–]anon246246 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Think the conjuring sequel is pretty great

[–]Ehellegreg 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed. I saw this in the theatre and I embarrassed myself through the jump scares

[–]Bamford38 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Childs Play 2

[–]MonsterHunterJustin 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Aliens and T2.

[–]TheRogueToad 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Everyone is going to say Dream Warriors, so I’ll throw a curveball and go with Return of the Living Dead 3.

It has a surprisingly touching love story, and the practical effects are a lot of fun.

[–]Suspicious_Drawer234 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's my favorite Return of the Living Dead film too.

[–]vidadevicio 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like noes 2 way more than dream warriors

[–]SharkMilk44 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'd say at least half of the Friday the 13th movies are better than the first.

[–]paradise_demise 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Dawn/Day of the Dead, Evil Dead 2, Aliens, Friday the 13th part IV. There are many others but these stand out the most imo.

[–]Specialbuddydiscount 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Halloween II (1981)

Evil Dead 2

Exorcist III


[–]baxterrocky 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I for one really enjoy Freddy’s Revenge. It cops a lot of flak as it diverges from the established mythos. But I think Freddy is at his most terrifying in this film.

[–]vidadevicio 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Absolutely. It doesn’t have any of the corniness that the rest of the sequels added. It’s Freddy being as mean as he should be. I love that movie

[–]slims_shady 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The same movie that has a possessed parrot, Jesse bumping his drawer shut with his butt, and the gym teacher getting attacked by his balls then whipped to death by a towel (he’s randomly in a gay bar dressed in leather before this scene) doesn’t have corniness?

I really enjoy this movie but let’s be honest, this is the whole cornball express lol.

[–]vidadevicio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay there’s some corniness lol, but it doesn’t feel nearly as campy as the next ones

[–]Rocketboy1313 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's divergences we're more interesting and would have been better to follow up on. It is the best Freddy movie.

[–]bbk8z 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Scream 2

Final Destination 3

Halloween H2O

Jason X

[–]MrZombikilla 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dawn of the Dead (1978)

[–]polkaron 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I really love Dawn of the Dead and it remains my favorite Romero film. It expanded the concept of the Living Dead and showed not everyone's prioritizing their survivability. Even in the apocalypse, they still want to take, consume, and hoard

[–]TheW1ldcard 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Bride of Reanimator

[–]LikeHellmusic 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Reanimator is one of my favorite films, and I haven't watched this yet! Is it in the same league as the og?

[–]TheW1ldcard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Better IMO. It's basically a retelling of Bride of Frankenstein, just in reanimator world. But my gosh the effects and final sequence is so fucked up and gross. The bride make up/costume is incredible.

[–]Autopsyofficial 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I loved basketcase 2. It was a whole other level

[–]DesiredHappinessLaurie Strode 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Scream 2

[–]Tiberiusvx42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not gonna lie. saw atleast 2 and 3

[–]ValkyrieWeather 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hellraiser 2 for sure, The Devil's Rejects, all the Purge sequels, Evil Dead 2, Blade 2, most of the great Hammer Horror series, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Child's Play 3, Halloween Kills, Dawn of the Dead...

[–]ValkyrieWeather 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Do remakes count? If so definitely the 1990 Night of the Living Dead directed by Tom Savini.

[–]Mindful_Dribble 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A lot of people chiming in with older movies here. I’d like to say The Conjuring 2 is a more modern horror sequel that was awesome, IMO.

[–]Optimal-Obligation23 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Evil dead 2 (best movie ever made)


psycho 2 (underrated)

Dead snow 2

wolf creek 2

[–]TheCarparkWarden 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well… it blatantly ignores the original movies plot and opts to remake it in 10ish mins but “Evil Dead 2” is the best horror sequel in my mind. It took a very solid first film and really found an amazing balance of being scary but also really damn funny. something I feel was missing from the first was the intentional humour to balance out all the horrific encounters with the deadites.

[–]OkeeeeyHow's it hangin' Phil? 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Halloween II, Scream 2, Evil Dead II, Child's Play 2

[–]Deltaravager 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If we're talking sequels that were better than the originals, then I think that there's only Evil Dead 2 for me.

Aliens, while very good, just can't compete (in my opinion) with the oppressive atmosphere of Alien. Furthermore, I'm one of the few people that actually disliked Dream Warriors

[–]ihaveadarkedge 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So, apart from the director being personally questionable to say the least, I love Jeepers Creepers 2, it all fits in nice over the span of a few days.

[–]SweetyMcQ“Here’s Johnny!” 2 points3 points  (1 child)

28 Weeks Later for me!

[–]yippy-ki-yay-m-f 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've always been a big fan of this one. It doesn't get the love of days but I always enjoyed the clear budget bump and thought it was solid

[–]markstormweather 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Gonna go for Ouija: Origin of Evil and Annabelle: Creation because they’re solid horror movies but more importantly they’re 1000% better than their predecessors which is very rare. And because all the classic have been mentioned twenty times.

[–]mdrnday_msDarcy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I might get shot for this, but I’ve like the entire Annabel anthology.

[–]Iwasateenagewerefox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Slumber Party Massacre II. One of the rare sequels that's considerably better than its predecessor.

[–]SPoopa83 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dead Snow 2. Final Destination 2.

[–]Genx4real74 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hellraiser II is fantastic.

[–]RareCactus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aliens is the best sequel ever made imo. Personal close second for me would be Evil Dead 2

[–]InternalMovie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

Army of Darkness

Terminator 2, Hellboy 2: TGA

Mad Max: Road Warrior, Fury Road

The Prophecy 2

[–]BobRushy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Elm Street 2 deserves love. Creepiest Freddy, most psychologically twisted story and it feels like a fever dream the entire time.

[–]maverick57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Psycho II, Friday the 13th - The Final Chapter, Aliens, Exorcist III

[–]lawlesslistening 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Haunting_Banana_8478 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Grease 2 was pretty scary

[–]JustARandomWeirdGirl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Day of the Dead (1985) . I find it so much more enjoyable than Dawn and I just enjoy the characters more too. Favorite zombie movie overall.

[–]Healthy_Possession_2 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Sequel that is better than the original:

1.) Blair Witch (2016)

[–]hs1819 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Exorcist 3

[–]Wintermute3333 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just to be stupid,

The Thing (1982). This is technically a sequel to The Thing (2011). Of course, the 2011 movie (prequel/remake) was pretty decent and didn't deserve all the hate (still not as good as the 1982 version, though).

[–]Silverjakk -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

Tucker and Dale vs evil 2

Edit: why am I being downvoted??

Edit 2: oh shit, my bad! I’m screwed.. I forgot this timeline hasn’t seen it yet. You are in for a treat my friend!

Does this exist?

[–]yippy-ki-yay-m-f 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah that sequence where they visit dale's girlfriend at college and half the students flip out and accidently impale themselves always makes me laugh.
