The Best Horror Movie Franchises Ranked By Me


Earlier this week I saw that there was a list ranking the horror movie franchises on Gawker and thought it would be a good idea to do here. My rules however are a bit different than what the folks at Gawker used. For my list the rules are as follows:

1. To qualify as a franchise there must be at least 3 movies released.
2. Remakes of movies can be counted as part of the franchise.
3. “VS” movies (like Aliens vs Predators and Freddy vs Jason) are not counted.
4. Must be horror flicks. Duh.

So on to my list.

Evil Dead Franchise

  1. Really awesome choices but what about the films in the Killer St. Bernard franchise: Beethoven, Beethoven’s 2nd, Beethoven’s 3rd, Beethoven’s 4th, Beethoven’s 5th, Beethoven’s Treasure Tail and Cujo?
