10 Great Horror Movie Sequels (Part 2)

ripley-guns

There is no shortage of disappointing Horror movie sequels, but here are some of the worst offenders (in my humble opinion):  The Exorcist Part 2, Final Destination Part 4, Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan, Halloween 3, Hellraiser: Hellworld (or pretty much any Hellraiser film after Part 5), Paranormal Activity Parts 2 and 4, Poltergeist 2, Quarantine 2: Terminal, The Last Exorcism Part 2, Saw 4, and Underworld Part 2.  All the films I just listed:  Bad bad BAD.  Stay away.  Seriously.

Since bad sequels are so abundant, I decided to honor Horror sequels that are actually good—even great.  Yesterday, I dropped the first half of my list: 10 Great Horror Movie Sequels.  As promised, Part 2 is now available after the jump.

The 1990’s gave us Grunge, Bill Clinton, the first Tech Bubble, and real ecstasy.  As far as Horror movies go, however, films produced in the 90’s were pretty piss-poor—for the most part.

Yesterday, I dropped the first half of my list: 10 Awesome 90’s Horror Movies, highlighting a few exceptions to the rule: Genre films that kicked ass then and still carry substantial weight today.

After the jump, you can read Part 2.

Top 10 Cannibal Horror Movies (Part 1)

Watching We Are What We Are last night and blogging about it this morning got me thinking about the cannibalism sub-genre of Horror.  Time for another Top 10 list boys and girls!

But before I begin, I’d just like to take a moment to state the following:  FUCK CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.  I refuse to say anything redeeming about this film from 1980 even though it is, perhaps, the most infamous cannibal-themed offering in existence.  I don’t mind using this platform, however, to talk about what a disgrace CH is and why it should never be watched by anyone.  I’m about as anti-censorship as one can be, but this film features real animals being brutally murdered in the name of “Entertainment”.   Don’t buy into the hype that CH is trailblazing and/or responsible for the “Found Footage” sub-genre of Horror.  In reality, it’s just a poorly made piece of shit and among the lowest forms of art.

Ok, I’m off the soapbox.  Check out my Top 10 Cannibal Horror Movies list after the jump.
