With the wide array of Horror fans here I thought this would be a fun topic. Of the following Horror series with at least three films or more, which is your single favorite entry in each? Cut and paste the list and fill it with your choice of your single favorite film per series. Add some more series if you'd like, for now I listed some of the major ones. Just be sure it's three movies or more, no two movies only ones (ie. House Of 1, 000 Corpses/The Devil's Rejects, Laid To Rest 1 and 2, etc.) and any series that has a remake, prequel, crossover, etc. those count.
Friday The 13th Halloween A Nightmare On Elm Street Saw Scream Phantasm Evil Dead Alien Predator Child's Play Hellraiser The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Insidious Final Destination Paranormal Activity
IMO the best installment in each:
Friday The 13th - The Final Chapter Halloween - 1978 Original A Nightmare On Elm Street - New Nightmare Saw - Saw II Scream - Original Phantasm - Phantasm II Evil Dead - Evil Dead II Alien - Aliens Predator - Predator 2 Child's Play - Original Hellraiser - Original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 2003 Remake Insidious - Chapter 3 Final Destination - Original Paranormal Activity - Original
Some additionals I forgot before:
Romero's Living Dead - Day Of The Dead (1985) Return Of The Living Dead - Part II Maniac Cop - Maniac Cop 2 Puppet Master - Puppet Master 4 Poltergeist - Poltergeist II Leprechaun - Original I Know What You Did Last Summer -Original Jaws - Original Tremors - Original Blade - Still undecided between the original or Blade II
I'm sure a few of my choices are controversial and are bound to raise eyebrows, like Predator 2, Poltergeist II and ROTLD2. Not to say I didn't like the originals because I do, I just simply enjoyed the subsequent sequel more though I'm well-aware some of my choices are unpopular (I'm sure me preferring the TCM remake is also controversial). Should be fun to see the varied responses this'll get.
You might get a few raised eyebrows on some of those, Phantasm II over the original??? Just kidding, it's different opinions that make it fun and no one here is going to give you any grief at all for yours. This is a cool idea too. I like the movie franchises you picked and just glancing at the list, I can tell you I'll be picking mostly originals, not all, but mostly.
Friday The 13th - Part II Halloween - original, followed closely by Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Love that movie. A Nightmare On Elm Street - original Saw - original Scream - original Phantasm - original Evil Dead - Love all three, but have to go with the original Alien - original Predator - Hmmm...original Child's Play - original Hellraiser - original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 1974 original Insidious - I guess the first one, not my favorite series Final Destination - original Paranormal Activity - Same as Insidious Romero's Living Dead - 1968 original Return Of The Living Dead - original Maniac Cop - part 2 as well Puppet Master - can't remember which ones I've seen, so I'm going original Poltergeist - original Leprechaun - original I Know What You Did Last Summer - original Jaws - original Tremors - original Blade - original

Yeah, I always enjoy seeing peoples' choices. Everybody's got a unique opinion and it's always fun to see what they come up with.
Friday The 13th - Part 4 The Final Chapter for sure Halloween - This one is really hard for me. The original is awesome but I love the second one and really love season of the witch. (It's really refreshing to see all of the love on here for season of the witch by the way.) A Nightmare On Elm Street - Dream Warriors Saw - Saw 2 Scream - Original Phantasm - I've only ever seen the first one :/ Evil Dead - Evil Dead 2 Alien - Original Predator - Original all the way Child's Play - Part 2. The factory scene is awesome. Hellraiser - Original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 1974 Version (Still scariest movie ever made to me) Insidious - Don't care for any of these Final Destination - Part 2. Highway scene... Paranormal Activity - First
Halloween - Halloween 2 A Nightmare On Elm Street - Dream Warriors Saw - Saw II Scream - Original Evil Dead - Evil Dead II Alien - Aliens Predator - Original Hellraiser - Hellbound The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Original Final Destination - Part 2 Friday the 13th - Part 2 Sleepaway Camp - Unhappy Campers
endo i'm currently watching halloween again as we bargained i would a while ago... jaws 3 is soooo much better, lol. no it's not, i admit. but i am laughing at some parts when i see mikey and that's not a good sign. i love carpenter though so i don't know why i don't like halloween.
Smeets, unfortunately, you're not alone in your dislike for Halloween. College students who had never seen it watched it and most found it silly and not scary at all. Some laughed during the screening.
Don't have the link, but it's out there. I think it's a classic example of horror, one of the best out there. Maybe because I grew up on it, I dunno. You like what you like, this one will always be a favorite for me.
endo i might give curtains (1983) a watch, and i'd prob like that better than halloween. that's the only movie we seem to disagree about being it one of carpenters first movies and shot in 20 days i'll cut him a break. i'm pretty sure there's more people out there that like it then don't, so you are in the clear on this one not me. i do like the rob zombie versions and i like season of the witch.
