Best Horror Movie Sequels, Ranked

Sequels are usually highly anticipated, but not always necessarily worthy successors to the original – especially when it comes to the horror genre.

In lots of cases, their poor reputation among movie fans is unfortunately justified: often, studios are more interested in taking advantage of an already successful franchise than developing a strong plot for a follow-up to an original film.

At the same time, there are exceptions! There are plenty of examples of horror movie sequels that are actually a welcome addition, and in even more rare cases, even considered superior to the first movie.
