In light of Halloween I thought this would be a cool thread.

Mine by a long shot is Nightmare on Elm Street. The whole premise is just so freaking original and it creeped me out like crazy when I was a youngling.

What's yours?

Halloween by miles. There are so many horrible Friday the 13th movies. The first couple of Nightmare on Elm Street movies and the reboot are good

Can't really say there's a franchise I like that much. "Franchise" just about always means 'great first movie followed by crappy sequels'.

Off hand, I can't think of one where I actually liked more than just the original.

The original Friday the 13th line was great. Not a fan of the remake/reboot.

Evil Dead series was great too.

The old Universal monster films are great too.

Captain Spaulding is the greatest horror movie character of all time. Sick, evil, funny, twisted, an compelling at the same time.

I'm always gonna say Halloween, but only the original was any good. The sequels weren't that great and H20 and the Rob Zombie versions killed it for me.

But a close second would have to be Psycho. And Evil Dead should be considered comedy, not horror.

Haloween was great, and part 2 was a good continuation of the story. Part three was original and creative, but didn't catch on. Would have been great if it were titled anything other than part of the Halloween series.


Evil Dead is great b/c of the comedy. The first two were only comedic at points, but by the time part three (Army of Darkness) came out, it was pure comedy.
