Re: Best Movie In a Series

I never got the disliking for Predator 2. I always enjoyed it as much as the original but given the choice I'd go with it. And Phantasm II is my all-time favorite Horror movie ever smile

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Trying to think of more series to add, Bassi covered a lot of other ones before.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

The Howling came to mind as another to add, although I'm sure most if not all would probably just choose the original.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Good call on all of those.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

How about Jaws? That's a good candidate for an addition, and like the majority of others I definitely like the original the best.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Forgot about the Hannibal Lecter series. I've seen all but Red Dragon and Hannibal Rising, but The Silence Of The Lambs is easily my favorite of the ones I've seen.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Non horror - The Godfather Part 2
Horror - Evil Dead 2

There's plenty more but those were the first 2 to spring to mind.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

I intended best movie in a Horror series (hence why I put the thread in this particular forum), but best movie in a general series isn't a bad idea for the non-Horror forum smile

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Violent Shit comes to mind or the August Underground series. But im twisted as f**k

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Forgot about those two. I only saw the first August Underground.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

I was thinking why not add some Horror television shows to the list and the best episode per season? Could be fun.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Final destination: 1 - 5
Evil Dead: original
Saw: original

Re: Best Movie In a Series

What about the other series?

Re: Best Movie In a Series

On the subject of best segment in an anthology, forgot about Cat's Eye. General is easily my favorite story in that.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

For fun and variety, I'll also add a season of some Horror anthology shows and which episodes are my favorite in each:


Tales From The Crypt S1 - The Man Who Was Death
Tales From The Crypt S2 - Television Terror
Tales From The Crypt S3 - Undertaking Palor
Tales From The Crypt S4 - The New Arrival
Tales From The Crypt S5 - House Of Horror
Tales From The Crypt S6 - Doctor Of Horror
Tales From The Crypt S7 - The Third Pig

Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S1 - The Tale Of The Pinball Wizard
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S2 - The Tale Of The Midnight Madness
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S3 - The Tale Of The Quicksilver
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S4 - The Tale Of The Fire Ghost
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S5 - The Tale Of The Dead Man's Float
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S6 - The Tale Of Vampire Town
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? S7 - The Tale Of The Silver Sight (all three parts)

Masters Of Horror S1 - Cigarette Burns
Masters Of Horror S2 - Family


It's been too long since I last watched all of the seasons of some of the other anthologies like Tales From The Darkside, Fear Itself, Tales From The Cryptkeeper, etc. so I need to rewatch those to determine.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Giving this a little bump, if that's okay.

93

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Friday The 13th - 7

Halloween - 1

A Nightmare On Elm Street - 1

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 1

Alien - 1

Predator - 1

Phantasm - 1

Evil Dead - 1

Hellraiser - 1

Child's Play - 1

Final Destination - 1

urgh mine is really boring

Re: Best Movie In a Series

^^
Not really, most series have the best film first.
I'd go with Phantasm 2, Hellraiser 2, Friday #2, and ED 2, but those are all personal choices for various reasons.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

There's plenty of series where I like the original the best but also plenty where I prefer the sequels.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

I thought of a funny addition, the Camp Blood movies big_smile They're so bad they're funny and amusing. I'm actually a little undecided which of the three I enjoyed the most. They're not good by any stretch but they can be hilarious if you watch them when in the right mood.

My favorites in each:


Friday The 13th - Jason Lives


I think I'll change this to The Final Chapter, though I'm constantly back and forth between 4 and 6 as my number one favorite F13 movie. Lately though I'd probably give a marginal edge to The Final Chapter.

I recently watched the first two seasons of this show. I'd say my favorite episodes in both seasons respectively are While The Cat's Away and The Haunted Mine.

Re: Best Movie In a Series

I love Tales From the Darkside! Classic

Re: Best Movie In a Series

Same. I remember my favorite episode was Halloween Candy, still need to see the entire series to see which episode is my favorite per season.

What are your favorite movies out of each listed Horror series?
