Nightmare on Elm Street is all I can think of right now even though I really only like the 1st and the 3rd and New Nightmare.

The scary movie franchise. Yes, it’s a comedy but nonetheless very damn funny.

You know what, I took a sec to think about it and I would say the original Universal Frankenstein. I hardly think of the word "franchise" with classic film but there it is. And the first three Frankenstein films are unsurpassed.

Scream. But just the two firsts...

Sex and the City.

I go more for the fun than gross ones. Final Destination had that Rube Goldberg murder machine going on and Friday the 13th was pretty funny at times.

Gator said...

Paranormal Activity. I prefer creepy over gore.

IndieRaga said...

Especially the second one....crap your pants scary !!!

Me Again said...

Agree on the Universal Frankenstein movies. They scared the crap out of me as a kid who watched Shock Theatre. I just knew he was roaming in the woods in my neighborhood. And he killed a little girl. The humanity.

Resident Evil

AbbyRock said...

Are the the original Frankenstein movies considered a franchise? If so, that would be my choice. Like the Vincent Price and Christopher Lee horror movies as well. Don't like any of the horror movies from the 70's until now except for Jaws and I'm not sure if that movie qualifies under the horror genre.

momo said...

I never liked scary movies. I remember seeing what was it called IT"S ALIVE or something like that about a baby born bad. This was early 70s I guess. I saw it even then as a total mind-f/ck - like fear the baby ?! Ditto, Rosemary's Baby. I never saw Nightmare on Elm Street or any of those flicks, and in fact avoided them. I did see Exorcist and Damian though. I get very overstimulated watching movies. Perhaps because we use a projector and everyone is SO BIG. ANYWAY PASS on the scary shit.

@momo.

I was just going to post that I'm probably the only one on here who doesn't like horror movies as a genre.

I thought I'd be a lone voice.

I just do not like jump scares. Sitting apprehensive waiting for the next 'BOO!' moment is far from my idea of a good time.

momo said...

Yeah Flashy. Fuck suspense. And surprise parties.

Brayson87 said...

@Flashy, But the women love it! 💖😅

Low Key said...

Evil Dead. The original trilogy.

Low Key said...

And the musical, of course.

gauloise said...

there was a tv show called A Haunting, that especially in the early seasons was absolutely amazing

otherwise scream

gauloise said...

amityville horror, the first one is epic, didnt see the rest

Phelps said...

Spy Kids.

Ann said...

Back in the 70's I walked out of that Frankenstein remake. The intestines were bouncing with the camera shot looking up through that heating grate. That was the last horror film I saw.

Skyler the Weird said...

Alien but the first two are the only good ones

Stupidpervs said...

CDAN...can't ignore the conflicting gossip and gay shaming and pedo protecting..a true masterpiece of horror..oh and name dropping of people dead for 30 years or more

The Disaffected Cynic said...

Sex and the City.

zerooptions said...

Sex and the city! LOL!!!!!

MissPeach said...

Scream

Vita said...

I usually cant even sit through the commercials for most.
I like the old Universal movies like Frankenstein or other classics played on the Son of Svengoolie show. Otherwise, Evil Dead for the humor.

Half Domer Homer said...

Any Disney family films.

notthisagain said...

Scream

its just fun. the 2nd one is my favorite. it manages to be an entertaining 'scary' franchise, but sort of not? also it mocks horror movie tropes and characters the whole franchise, which I kind of adore lol

Jeff said...

It's not a franchise, but I like Angel Heart. Micky O'Rourke and Robert De Niro. Check it out. Scared the shit out of me.

Living in London in the’60’s, there was a show titled Mystery and Imagination. It was terrifying, especially the episode with Struwwelpeter. My brothers were addicted to the monster movies that played Saturday’s on WOR and WPIX. I spent every crossing of London Bridge on the car’s floor of the backseat convinced that the Great Behemoth would rise from the Thames and eat our car with us in it. Then there was the chalet my parents rented for a month outside of Davos which I just KNEW that damn Crawling Eye was coming down from the Alps. Oh yeah, Those fucking Daleks. I am amazed my over-active 3-6 year old brain didn’t atrophy with abject fear.

rabbit said...

Creature from the Black Lagoon. The director who made Shape of Water totally ripped it off.

GentleBreeze said...

Yes! The original Frankenstein. Bride of Frankenstein's music score is a thing of beauty.

OKay said...

I don't do horror. I don't find it fun at all to be scared.

Still Liz said...

#1 Poltergeist- because Heather O'Roark was a G.
#2 Nightmare on Elm St. - because Johnny Depp went to jail in pt.1 and got shanked.

Still Liz said...

Geez how could anybody forget Hellraiser or Phantasm?!? I'm done. I miss the late 80's.

James Howlett said...

No, he was the bed.

James Howlett said...

Phantasm 1 was all a dream. The movies are pretty deep.

JMFP said...

Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses,
The Devils Rejects
and am super stoked to see 3 from Hell

Not sure if these qualify as a franchise but close enough!
