Topic: Best Sequles In Horror

Rarely in movies are sequles better than the originals, espically in horror in which the sequles are just the originals re-done. Don't get me wrong, I live for horror movies and their "crappy" sequles! What are sequles that you think surpass or are atleast up to par with the originals??

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

In horror?
Maybe 'Friday the 13th part 2.'
'Evil Dead 2', depending on your take of the horror/comedy balance.
Some people like 'Dawn of the Dead' better than 'NotLD.'
I like 'Hellraiser 2' better than the first.
Also with 'Phantasm 2.'
Sadly, 'House of the Dead 2' (as bad as it was) was better than the 1st.
'Aliens' vs. 'Alien' is realy a toss-up for me.

That's about I'll I can think of off the top of my head.  I'm sure some of the smarter folks will come up with some good ones.

[edit- I was only looking at direct sequels, i.e. the 2nd movies, not things like F13th #4 and such.]

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Yeah I like Dawn of the Dead better than Night of the Living Dead too. I hated Evil Dead 2, it was just to silly for me. Aliens is a GREAT sequal, but it was more of an action flick rather than horror, the first one has a very scary, dark, clastrophobic feel. I also thought that Child's Play 2 was better than the first.

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

I think Day of the Dead is better than Dawn ands Night
Aliens, of course
then people will say Scream 4 is better than 2 and 3
Bride of Frankenstein is one aswell
I think Wrong turn 2 is better 1
Some people like TCM 2 better than 1
Hostel 2 is better than 1(though thats not saying much)

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

I would also go with...

Dawn of the Dead & Day of the Dead
Aliens
Evil Dead 2
Bride of Frankenstein



And add....

Blade 2
The Devil's Rejects



Also most of the Hammer sequels are just as good as the originals....
Dracula  Series,  frankenstein Series, etc...

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Return of the Evil Dead is better than Tombs of the Blind Dead.

Everything else I can think of is already mentioned.

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

I also prefer Dawn of the Dead to Night... & agree about Hellraiser 2, as far as TCM 2 i don't think it was better just a different kind of movie but i'd say that TCM 3 was better than 2.

What about Halloween 2, i don't know if i'd say it was better than the original but they go together as one big movie for me.

Some others i think are as good as the originals:

Final Destination 2
Critters 2
Psycho 2
Sleepaway Camp 2
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Forgot to add Final Destination 5 was one of the best of the series.

I agree, i thought that the 5th was the most consistently good one since part 2 & a great way to tie everything together.

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Dawn of the Dead
Day of the Dead
Predator 2
Hostel 2
Hellraiser 2
Friday the 13th part 4

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Going with either direct, or indirect:

Day, Dawn, Night in that order for me.
Aliens, Resurrection, Alien, taking a shit on my chest, Alien 3
Blade Trinity, Blade, Blade 2

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

aside from those mentioned, Scanners 2 was pretty tight

Erm, somethin' goin' on we need to know about?

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Since the OP specified sequels that were beter than the original I'll stick to those.

Hostel 2
Cabin Fever 2
Piranha 3D (if you consider it a sequel)
Blade Trinity was my favorite of the series
I think that REC2 was at least on par with REC

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Better than the originals IMO...

Phantasm II
Friday the 13th IV
Blade II
Day of the Dead
Cold Prey 2

Not as good as the originals but still good...

Aliens
The Fly II
Evil Dead 2
Army of Darkness

16

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Friday the 13th 3 is better than the first one, Scream 2, Hellbound

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

All in my most humble of opinions...

Friday the 13th 3, 4 and 6
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, 3 and New Nightmare
Dawn of the Dead (original, natch')
Phantasm 2
Hostel 2
The Devil's Rejects
Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn
Blade II
Final Destination 2
Halloween 2, 4 and H2O
Halloween III (not really a sequel, obviously, but still a pretty nifty stand-alone flick with a Halloween title lol )
Hellbound: Hellraiser 2

Damn.  I know there are others, they're just not coming to me.  I'll come back to this.

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Where can I watch Cold Prey 2 at??

Don't look now, but you've got a dangling preposition. 

Oh...crap, that's not a preposition.  Zip up, dude.  Nobody wants to see that.

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Huhuhuhuhu prepositions suck

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

Dangling participle-
"Where at can I watch Cold Prey 2?"

Damn, I'm a freaking nerd...

ever play around with a Dangling participle?

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

^^
I've played around with things you don't even want to know about.

Re: Best Sequles In Horror

I always thought Dawn of the Dead was a sequel, it's probably the greatest in horror history if you consider it as a sequel. Indirect of course.
