Re: What are your top 3 Favorite Horror movie Franchise?

^^ Oh I have tremendous love for Hammer's Dracula and Frankenstein films as well as Corman's Poe movies. Aside from the Halloween series, I probably watch those films more often than anything else. I suppose I wasn't thinking of them using the term "franchise" though.

I suppose u guys are right. It realise calling them franchises may do them a disservice cause they represent arguably a greater craft of love rather than a money machine which are a large part for the reasons why modern franchises like Friday the 13th, NOES etc continued their sequels. Thats not 2 criticize guys like Savini cause he put all his love and effort into the FX of such films aswell as the immense contribution of other creatives.

Re: What are your top 3 Favorite Horror movie Franchise?

Gonna have to say

1. Nightmare on Elm St Franchise - The original Nightmare on Elm St never gets old.  Nightmare on Elm St. Dream Warriors is written co-written by Craven, Chuck Russel(the Mask, Eraser, The Blob), Frank Darabont who Directed Shawshank and the first episode of Walking Dead.  The only film of that series I just CANT watch is Dream Child.  The first half of Dream Masters is awesome as an 80s teen comedy/horror movie, but it really falls off second half.  New Nightmare of course is very solid as well, and was sort of Craven's practice run before Scream.

Scream Franchise - The first film is just so damn great in every way.  I am also a pretty darn big fan of the 4th.  I know it isn't a GREAT film but it is definitely one of my favorites considering all the hot tail running around the whole film..

Halloween - Mainly just the first 2 films here, but the Curse of Michael Myers, and even the ones they show year after year are sometimes watchable.  Oh and Halloween 3 is actually a fun watch as well, and better than most the other sequels.  Halloween 1, 2, and 3 is a pretty damn good trilogy right there.  I've never looked at it that way but really Carpenter made a trilogy of Halloween films because he basically ended up directing the second after the original director handed Carpenter a piece of film.  fThen Carpenter of course produced and scored the 3rd film..

Romero's Dead Franchise - all three films just different and great in their own way..and Day of the Dead being just about the best fucking Zombie movie ever made.


Had to do 4.
