Top 10 Most Oversaturated Horror Movie FranchisesThey keep making them, but we won't buy them. Today, we will go into the darkest corner in film. The darkest genre. We have had enjoyable horror movies such as "The Shining" but horrendous ones as well. Ended franchises will not be spared. As long as it's got more than one horror movie and has spawned a remake-sequel, it will not be spared.
The Top Ten
Who the hell thought this movie would be a good idea in the first place? The 2004 flick hasn't been critically praised so what gives them the bright idea to make sequels? Oh wait, cash of course. The people I've met who say they liked the 2004 one have even said the sequels were just tryhards. This one belongs at #1. - jack2244
Another franchise that was dead to begin with. This 2007 franchise is complete BS. It's sequel, Paranormal Activity 2 has a 5.7 on IMDb, the series keeps going downwards as it continues, even with Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension winning a 4.6, as well as Paranormal Activity 4 winning the same score. Please, just throw this franchise in the trash. - jack2244
Due to Jason Voorhees, this series has become iconic. The 1980 film had its flaws but it was a fine horror flick. However, the franchise has become pointless as hell. Friday the 13th Part 2 was fine but after that era it died. Like seriously, it has not had a good movie since the first two. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan and Jason Goes to Hell are some of the worst movies in my book and Jason X achieved a score of 0% for me. The 2009 remake wasn't any good either. - jack2244
Whilst we haven't heard from this franchise since 1990, it belongs on this list due to creating the most overrated horror flick in existence. The Exorcist is a dull and boring film with misleading reviews. Exorcist II: The Heretic won a spot on the worst movies of all time in my book, and I have not watched The Exorcist III. Due to how much the 1972 original phased me and The Heretic being extremely bad, I don't want to watch the 3rd one. - jack2244
Probably the darkest horror flick besides The Exorcist, 1974's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a beloved horror movie. However, I do not get the appeal at all. It really has phased how I feel about watching certain movies. All of its sequels have been panned, as well as Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation winning a 3.2 on IMDb, this franchise probably shouldn't be heard from again. Due to also having a remake franchise, it's best we don't plan anymore sequels. - jack2244
What began as a beloved horror movie in 1978, it's become a classic and a favorite of many horror fans. It's 1981 sequel Halloween II was disappointing but an okay movie. However, Halloween 3 killed this franchise. Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 are frequently considered bad, as well as Halloween: Resurrection. It's other sequels haven't been acclaimed, as it's 2007 remake has been completely panned too, and the following remake, just… no. - jack2244
Here we go, with an NC-17 rated horror movie... The Evil Dead. This 1981 movie is considered one of the goriest movies ever, and is laughable at times. It has everything from tree rape and many scenes of possession. Then, we get a sequel in 1987, Evil Dead II, which was better than this one. However, I am mixed on Evil Dead II still. 1992's Army of Darkness wasn't any better. Director Sam Raimi continued to the Spider-Man trilogy and 2009 horror movie Drag Me to Hell (which wasn't any good). A 2013 remake was made, nothing good. - jack2244
Here's one of the worst horror movies in existence, 1996's Scream. It's sequels, "Scream 2", "Scream 3", and "Scream 4" have been considered cinematic trash. So yes, not much to say here besides the fact that this franchise is a satirical unscary wannabe of horror movies. And this was brought by the same man who brought us the genius Nightmare on Elm Street franchise? - jack2244
Enough with these movies! The only 2 that ever worked was the 1932 one with Boris Karloff and the 1999 one with Brendan Frasier.
