Good thread idea!


FRIDAY THE 13th - FRIDAY THE 13th: THE FINAL CHAPTER
HELLRAISER - HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER 2

All the others it's the original except for

INSIDIOUS and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY

both of which I really don't like any of them.

I like the original films best but some of your choices are interesting

Thought this would be a fun topic with the seemingly wide array of Horror fans here. Of the following Horror series with at least three films or more, which is your single favorite entry in each? Cut and paste the list and fill it with your choice of your single favorite film per series. Add some more series if you'd like, for now I listed some of the major ones. Just be sure it's three movies or more, no two movies only ones (ie. House Of 1, 000 Corpses/The Devil's Rejects, Laid To Rest 1 and 2, etc.) and any series that has a remake, prequel, crossover, etc. those count.

Friday The 13th
Halloween
A Nightmare On Elm Street
Saw
Scream
Phantasm
Evil Dead
Alien
Predator
Child's Play
Hellraiser
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Insidious
Final Destination
Paranormal Activity

---

IMO the best installment in each:


Friday The 13th - The Final Chapter
Halloween - 1978 Original
A Nightmare On Elm Street - New Nightmare
Saw - Saw II
Scream - Original
Phantasm - Phantasm II
Evil Dead - Evil Dead II
Alien - Aliens
Predator - Predator 2
Child's Play - Original
Hellraiser - Original
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 2003 Remake
Insidious - Chapter 3
Final Destination - Original
Paranormal Activity - Original


Some additionals I forgot before:


Romero's Living Dead - Day Of The Dead (1985)
Return Of The Living Dead - Part II
Maniac Cop - Maniac Cop 2
Puppet Master - Puppet Master 4
Poltergeist - Poltergeist II
Leprechaun - Original
I Know What You Did Last Summer -Original
Jaws - Original
Tremors - Original
Blade - Still undecided between the original or Blade II


I'm sure a few of my choices are controversial and are bound to raise eyebrows, like Predator 2, Poltergeist II and ROTLD2. Not to say I didn't like the originals because I do, I just simply enjoyed the subsequent sequel more though I'm well-aware some of my choices are unpopular (I'm sure me preferring the TCM remake is also controversial). Should be fun to see the varied responses this'll get.
