Phil’s Top 5… Horror Movies Franchises

Phil’s Top 5… Horror Movies Franchises

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Horror Franchises

 

Close but no cigar: The Purge, Final Destination , Scream,  Saw

 

5 – Childs Play
Childs Play started well, went pretty rotten in the middle but managed to stick the landing with Bride, Child and most recently Cult Of Chucky.  Still got legs.

 

4 – Halloween
One great film, a few weak sequels, an excellent reboot and now a new new reboot means that Halloween is far from finished.

 

3 – A Nightmare On Elm Street
Elm Street is a mix of the good (the original, a New Nightmare, Dream Warriors), the bad (part 5) and the ugly (the remake) but s a horror icon few beat Freddie.  

2 – Evil Dead
Four movies and an incredible TV show, The Evil Dead franchise continues to endure well past it’s original roots as a down and very dirty low budget calling card for Sam Rami.

 

1 – Friday The 13th
Yup they haven’t aged that well and the franchise has stalled of late but growing up few films or horror icons scared me as much as the Friday films.  From the iconic (Part 4) to the Crazy bad but fun (Jason takes Manhattan)  I still love everyone of them.  Including the rather good remake.

Phil’s Top 5… Slasher Film Villains!

Phil’s Top 5… Slasher Film Villains!

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Slasher Film Villains!

So a few rules: They have to have been in more than one film. They have to be masked/somehow hide their identity.  And they must have killed.  A lot.

Close but no cigar: Chucky, Norman Bates, Ghostface

 

5 –  Pinhead
From Hell itself comes Doug Bradley’s chilling coenobite, a relentless pin faced monster that’s as unstoppable as any other on this list with his own unique calling card.  The infamous Lament Configuration.

Watch: Hellriaser 3: Hell On Earth (1992)
Avoid: Hellraiser Revelations (2011)

 

4 – Leatherface
His face caked in the skin of his victims, loves meat hooks, freezers and will chase you down relentlessly with his chainsaw.  Also very much a family man.  In short: a 6 and a half foot brainless killing machine.

Watch: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Avoid: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)

 

3 – Jason Voorhees
Not the original villain from Friday The 13th (That was his loving mother), but from it’s first sequel onwards Jason proved to be as relentless and unstoppable as any slasher movie icon.  Adopting his machete and hockey mask in Part 3 it was all over by Part 4’s final chapter.  Until lightning brought him back. And telekinesis.  And space. And a reboot.  His rein of terror continues to this day.

Watch: Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
Avoid: Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood (1988)

2 – Michael Myers
Michael Myers in truth is why this list exists.  Without the William Shatner faced stalker of Jamie Lee Curtis NONE of these (with the exception of Leatherface) would exist.  A true icon of the genre, in what is by far the best slasher movie ever made.

Watch: Halloween (1978)
Avoid: Halloween 2 (2009)

 

1 – Freddy Krueger
Whilst most copied the relentless silent Killer model set up by Michael Myers, Freddy was something a little different.  A wise cracking burnt to a crisp child killer, Kruger haunted your dreams until brutally killing you with his razor fingers.  Wes Craven created what is the true Slasher film icon in Krueger, who would shine no matter how bad the film he was in.

Watch: A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
Avoid: A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)
