The greatest horror FRANCHISE!

One of if not the best horror franchises

I love scream so much I watch it heaps - summer_roberts856


The greatest horror series of all time. The plot twists are all amazing and blows my mid all the time. Definitely 10/10

Though it may not be horror it was one of the best movies I've ever seen the sequels weren't as good but they were really good

Jigsaw and Billy Did Something Most Bad Guys Couldn't Do: Win

The twists were awesome.

4Friday the 13th

ARE. YOU. KIDDING. Friday the 13th series on #10. It deserve a place on top 3.
He can't be killed.

Jason cannot be killed. He's like a shark out of water and would destroy all other horror villains.

Second best franchise ever, next to Evil Dead. Ever movie is goo, even the weaker ones (like Parts 8-10). Part 4 is the best.

First three are good

5Nightmare On Elm Street

NOES is one of the best, most frightening horror franchises ever made. Freddy Kruger is the ultimate villain, and the movies are still scary to this day. The same can't necessarily be said for the rest of the heavy hitters. I love Friday the 13th as much as the next person, I own every single movie in the franchise, and have seen them all multiple times, but I generally laugh through them, and shake my head at how far movies have come. But Nightmare is a series that is still great to this day, and you can't forget the amazing 2010 remake. The 2010 NOES remake is a masterpiece. - heather

6Child's Play

When I watched it as a child, it scared the crap out of me. When I re-watched it as an adult, I was less terrified, so I could see and appreciate makers' sense of humor. It's based on a well-known concept of living dolls, but creepy enough for us not to think how many times was it used before. The sequels were more grotesque than scary, but in my opinion good enough not to ruin the first movie's effect. - saaarsdej

Love this series. Always made me laugh and scare the life out of my kids when they first saw it. One of the best horror/comedy film series.

First 3 are amazing, Bride was ok, Seed was terrible, Curse was good, better than Bride and Seed combined.

7The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Because this is banned in some countrys because of the violence. Its not the best but having the rating X and in the top 5 banned movies in the world. The first time I watched it was when I went to the cinema to see it when I was 8 because they rated it PG before it got banned!

9Final Destination

I never collect horror movie sequels but Final Destination is the only one I buy every film it makes - jamienicholls

It had me glued to my couch the whole day

For what they are, they're pretty good, except for the 4th one.

The Newcomers

?Phantasm II

I agree, Phantasm is great! You can only list the second one for some reason. But the Series as a whole is so off the beaten path of horror. Truly a fun watch.


Phantasm is Awesome! The tall man is probably the best horror villain of all time!

The Contenders


The only franchise with every part being more than good

Psycho 2 is almost as good as the original

13Paranormal Activity

Now on it's 4th movie, you can't have a horror movie series without Paranormal Activity. This Franchise is booming right now, and probably will for years to come. I know it's my go-to if I want to get freaked out. - heather

Best set of movies, a true classic
Not exactly a horror movie though, more like Sci-Fi or action/adventure
Still a great collection of movies


The first and second are some of the most artistic horror movies ever made
