Best Horror Movie Series


The Top Ten

1 Halloween Halloween

This is by far the Best horror movie I have ever seen and it is better than scream

I'm not the biggest fan of the Halloween films, I have the first 2, but they're just okay, nothing special. He escapes from a mental asylum, where he has been since he killed his family, but he knows how to drive?

How can this film be so far down the list, seriously its one of the best horrors ot there.

Best ever

2 Saw Saw

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 plot, traps, and characters are what make this a great franchise

4 Friday the 13th Friday the 13th

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

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.

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

My favourite horror film series by far!

5 Nightmare On Elm Street Nightmare 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

Scream? Nightmare is where it's at lol.

6 Child's Play Child'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.

Child's play is one of my favourite horror film series due to its comedy.

7 Final Destination Final Destination

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

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

I am waiting for the 6th one which is supposed to be coming out next year.

Best in the world

8 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre The 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!

I love these films. The second one is my favourite. I love the chainsaw dance at the end of the first film and my favourite line is,
"the saw is family! "

10 The Grudge The Grudge V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 Psycho Psycho

The only franchise with every part being more than good

Psycho 2 is almost as good as the original

12 Insidious Insidious
13 Paranormal Activity Paranormal 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

15 The Conjuring The Conjuring

The Conjuring 1 and 2 are hands down an outstanding new addition to horror movies

16 Hellraiser

Next year, there is supposed to be a new one coming out and I am really excited for it

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

17 House of 1000 Corpses House of 1000 Corpses
18 Jaws Jaws

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
