I’ve seen
2x of the dead
2x evil dead
1x Halloween
1x scream
1x saw
1x Psycho

First Hellraiser is legit great.

Child’s Play is a great fun series. Maybe the only one that gets more interesting as it goes along :thinking:

I sincerely hope that they are all middle instalments of each series…

I don’t think I’ll ever watch Hellraiser, the whole aesthetic from what I’ve seen makes me really against it

The saw one is. I think it was saw 3. Watched maybe half an hour of it. Utter shit

Ah yes, the Saw sequel that was utter shit. You’re going to have to narrow it down a bit more m9…

(I’ve actually seen all of them :woman_shrugging:)

Hellraiser is fucking incredible man, up there with Event Horizon for me


Scream might be my fav horror ever and I got a lot of enjoyment from all the sequels - not an actively bad film in there

The Dead series has 3 legit classics in there so can;t overlook that

Have very much enjoyed our journey this month through the Elm Street sequels though, got a lot more from 2-4 than I expected and very ready to see A New Nightmare

Evil Dead an easy 1st for me

Hard to chose the second, lots of og films I love where the series is not up to much on the whole

I’ve put the Omen cos it was scary when I was a kid and all the death scenes are like the original Final Destination which I also like

3x of the Dead
1x Evil Dead
5x Halloween
2x TCM
1x Exorcist
4x Elm Street
4x Scream
5x Final Destination
1x Hellraiser
1x Child’s Play
2x Saw (maybe?)
2x Conjuring
2x Friday 13th
3x Paranormal?
1x Psycho
1x Poltergeist
2x Purge

maybe idk dont make me letterboxd for accurate stats

Can I say Phantasm?

Evil Dead was trash garbage btw

Nuts - meant to include that :grimacing:

Oh no, I didn’t see Scream was there for some reason - very strong run of films. Don’t remember any of them being embarrassing. I’d swap that for Poltergeist - only remember the sequels being scary when I got obsessed as a kid. They’re probably shit now. First three Final Destination films are so fun. The ones that came after seemed to be total afterthoughts where the studio just couldn’t let it lie so had the occasional pop at milking the franchise a bit more. Don’t really acknowledge them.

Evil Dead 2 is the best film in the list (of the 8 I’ve seen)


Not 100% as some of the sequels surprisingly blur into each other, but I think I’ve seen…

5 x Of The Dead
4 x Evil Dead
9 x Halloween
1 x TCM
4 x Exorcist
8 x Elm Street
4 x Scream
5 x Final Destination
3 x Hellraiserers
7 x Child’s Play
9 x Saw
2 x Conjuring
10 x Friday the 13th
3 x Paranormal Activity
4 x Psycho
4 x Omen
3 x Poltergeist
3 x Amityville
5 x Purge

What have I done with my life…
