Your Turn

Favorite horror movie franchise. Not a one off, a franchise.

The Omen.

Freddy

The Thing was unfortunately franchised, so that.

I'm horrified by horror movies.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Sex and the City

DDonna Tarttty said...

The "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies are probably the only franchise with more than one good entry, which is to say two.

The "Halloween" remake was well done, but I didn't like it. Rob Zombie is a talented director, I wish he would get the help he obviously needs. But "Hallowe'en III: Season of the Witch" was also pretty good, for what it is, so that's runner up.

Viking Song said...

The Omen or the Conjuring.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

The "Creep" franchise.

Alien

Christina said...

I agree with J - Sex and the City is a very good pick.

Green Tea said...

Scream

Geeljire said...

Damn, son.
BOOM HEADSHOT

Do Tell said...

I dunno, Donna, I thought The Omen 2 was as good as Omen 1.

Oh, I forgot Poltergeist. I loved the first two movies.

Jon said...

Child's Play. The ones with Jennifer Tilly especially.

Now THOSE are horrifying.

Final Destination

Evil Dead

Glue said...

I can't believe no one mentioned Friday the 13th, yet.

Must be a young crowd at this "your turn" - they probably have no clue who is "Jason."

Florin said...

I think the Night of the Living Dead franchise is probably my favorite. Lots of fun social commentary mixed into those.

totaji said...

The only series where the reality was more horrifying than the movies.

Geeljire said...

Nah, we're just not as enthused by shallow morality plays as you must be

Do Tell said...

I know who Jason is, I'm just not a fan of those movies. The Nightmare movies were funny, though.

Unknown said...

Nice!

Glue said...

@Do Tell - they were kitschy little horror movies for sure - and tbh I hate horror movies, but the original Fri/13th was the very first horror movie I was allowed to go see on my own, so while it's not the best movie out there, it holds a kitschy place in my heart. /grin/

Plus it was the first time as a pre-teen I saw Kevin Bacon on screen. /swoon/

Truthseeker said...

This one is tough, I really liked the first few Hellraisers before they got stupid. But I would also probably say Friday the 13th.

gauloise said...

scream

Geeljire said...

Oh
You're forgiven๐Ÿ˜‰

DDonna Tarttty said...

I'm seeing other suggestions here--Alien/s, Scream, Conjuring--that make me reassess. I never saw Omen 2, but maybe that one too. There are several franchises that had more than one good film. I'll change my pick to "Scream."

Mhdz said...

Hellraiser

Thia said...

Star Trek, but not the reboot. I hate reboots with a passion.

Thia said...

Clearly lost the ability to read. haha

I liked The Blair Witch Project (yes, even the second one).

Jon said...

Evil Dead trilogy!

Low Key said...

Evil Dead
I've even seen the musical, highly recommend.

Admin User said...

Alien

Thorne said...

Kill Bill

Sagan said...

Jaws (1 and 2)
The Omen (1-2-3)

Ri said...

Omen and Hellraisers!!!!!

Brayson87 said...

For their time, Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th. I was also fond of The Howling, the suspense of not knowing who is a werewolf.

Freddy will always be #1 in my heart but the Final Destination series holds up against the improved special effects skills we have to date. Saw & Hellraiser do the job too.

mercyprosperity said...

I don't like them. Bad for the soul. They used to be just a few thrills. They got much worse.

mooshki said...

The Conjuring. I hated when "happy endings" went out of fashion. I want to see someone go through a nightmare and come out on the other side. And they have the right balance of showing you scares and letting you imagine them.

@mercyprosperity They've gotten better lately. Torture porn is no longer in fashion, thank god.

@thia I think the Blair Witch sequel is underrated.

pixiegothy said...

Omg the second one is my fave, watched it many times just because of Kim Diamond! Lol

lucy said...

I was going to nominate Halloween til I just searched and saw there has been 11 of them made wtf. that is ridiculous. but while I am here yesterday at work I was talking to a girl about a movie and we both couldn't figure out the name and I want to be the hero please help me

it was kind of like sleeping with the enemy. the wife fakes her death and moves to quaint town. as I recall she hooks up with a teacher and maybe her mom is in a home but at end of it she knows husband found her because stuff in house was straightened up and she ends up shooting him in head at her home. I may be crossing storylines with enemy movie and that one movie with the beach house and I did try to web search it and it's not Haven because I don't think she had kids. what is the name of movie please

Cee Kay said...

I hate horror. But I have seen two Purge movies, so I guess I have to pick that one.

Gator said...

Paranormal Activity

Cherry Stiles said...

Saw.... nothing like a creepy "Saw" movie!

mooshki said...

@Lucy, everything you described is from Sleeping With the Enemy. :)

Sara, Making It Work said...

Friday the 13th part IV: The Final Chapter (which wasn't the final chapter, naturally) is worth watching for Crispin Glover. I think this is the one Corey Feldman is in too.

bleacherbunny said...

Halloween. The best.

OKC Teacher said...

@Lucy was it “Enough?” With Jennifer Lopez & Billy Campbell?
I’m also thinking there was another similar movie with Billy Moses, maybe?

Kno Won Uno said...

Do not want. Reality is frightening enough.

I live in Racoon City, so I have to go with Resident Evil. I just love it, even the shitty films.

lucy said...

thank you for your input. certainly sounds like sleeping with the enemy but we both insist it wasnt, but very similar. I swear it wasn't Julia Roberts starring, also know it wasn't Enough. hopefully it runs again soon as it's kinda making me nuts.
thanks again

That dance Glover does in the movie is hilarious.
