Horror Sequels Better Than The Original
 
What are some Horror sequels you prefer to the originals? In no order, a few I like better include:


Phantasm II
Friday The 13th Parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 and New Nightmare
Saw II
Aliens
Predator 2
Puppet Master 2, 3 and 4
Evil Dead II and Army Of Darkness
Hatchet II
Maniac Cop 2 and 3


To name a few, I'm sure there's more. I know some of my picks like Predator 2 may seem odd, but that doesn't mean I dislike the originals, I just like their sequels more. Predator 2 I enjoy better for seeing more of the Predator and in a different setting, and I liked Nightmares 3 and 7 better for being more elaborate and creative than the first Nightmare. Even though I do love the originals in each of their series.

I have to disagree with each and every one of these.None are as good as the original movies in mu opinion.Even Aliens,superb that it is it isnt as good as Ridley`s Stunning original.

Dawn of the Dead would get my vote,not the remake of course,though i do enjoy that one too.
Hostel 2 and mainly because i fell in love with Bijou Philips.;)

It is hard to top the first movie in a franchise though.

My favorite is Aliens

Return of the Living Dead Part 2 better than the original? Get outta here! :D

Hatchet II and Final Destination 2 are a couple that come to mind for me.
