    With the release of Paranormal Activity 4 we have yet another franchise to reach the coveted 4th film plateau. Many series have hit their stride in the fourth while many a series have went off the rails at the same installment. There's quite the list here, and several more that couldn't fit...which one is your favorite 4th film in a franchise?

    Didn't make the cut:

    Alien: Resurrection
    Anal Intruder 4
    Critters 4
    Faces of Death IV
    Frankenstein Created Woman
    Hannibal Rising
    House IV
    Howling IV: The Original Nightmare
    Initiation: Silent Night, Deadly Night 4
    Jaws: The Revenge
    Leprechaun 4: In Space
    Omen IV: The Awakening
    Night of the Seagulls
    Puppet Master 4
    Resident Evil: Afterlife
    Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis
    Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
    The Ghost of Frankenstein
    Underworld: Awakening
    Wrong Turn 4

    Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. Only 4th film that I feel is actually the best in a series. 2nd place would go to Bride of Chucky.

    Agreed.

    I'd give second place to Phantasm IV: Oblivion. I've heard good things about Prom Night IV: Delivery Us From Evil and Psycho IV: The Beginning so will need to check them out.

    Friday the 13th Part IV has great gore, but so did Part 3. The Final Chapter has shit for characters, though. Except for Trish, name one person in that bunch of imbeciles you actually like and give a good reason for liking them.

    There is only one franchise that truly improved with the 4th film, and that's Child's Play. Not to say Children of the Corn IV wasn't a huge improvement over Urban Harvest, but the franchise hit its' peak with Final Sacrifice.

    Fourth Frankenstein would be GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN, I think, not HOUSE OF. I'm the clown that voted for THE MUMMY'S CURSE. Some pretty great movies on that list, to my surprise.

    Correct, but HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN is actually the 4th Dracula film, so I figured since it kind of covered both that would be a better option to pick since I couldn't fit them all in. :)

    The Final Sacrifice sucks, the third and fourth are easily better, and honestly I'd probably rather watch the first, fifth and seventh films over that one too.

    As for the characters in The Final Chapter...Tommy Jarvis, Jimbo, the virgin, GORDON...all pretty likeable. The twins and Teddy are at the very least memorable.

    Actually, I think Children of the Corn IV is easily the best movie in that series. For elevating the franchise waaaay higher than it ever had a right to be, it gets my vote.

    Rhett, I've gotta question not including Frankenstein Created Woman in the official list. I like Dracula has Risen from the Grave quite a bit, but i think Frankenstein Created Woman is a better film.

    It was one or the other for the Hammer flicks, and I most often hear about DHRFTG before Frankenstein Created Woman (despite the fact that that title OWNS) so that's why I went that way. Hammer's Dracula sequels were always more popular than their Frankenstein entries.

    i agree, i think the characters in The Final Chapter were all pretty enjoyable. Even somebody like Teddy is dick, but a likable dick. The twins don't have much screen time, and therefore not much of a personality, and Sam and her boyfriend (can't remember his name) also suffer from a lack of development, but otherwise the characters are actually pretty good in that film. I liked Rob a lot too, and his death is one of the more impactful ones in the series.

    i think you're right, but for my money the frankensteins are definitely the better series of films. they have much more variety and a more consistent level of quality.

    Great thread Rhett. I struggled with this one. Finally went with "Friday the 13th 4" over "Nightmare 4." DVD-fanatic-9 makes some good points about the characters in "The Final Chapter," but I'll take them over the fire-urinating dog, Tuesday Knight and invisible kung-fu battle. :)

    Psycho IV: The Beginning.

    Probably the best made for TV franchise film, one of the best prequels and about a billion times better than it needed or had any right to be. Fantastic performances from Perkins, Thomas and Hussey. An under recognized gem in every way possible.

    Garris power!

    Since the FRANKENSTEIN series from Hammer was excluded I will go with their Dracula outing DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE.Lee is very imposing,Freddie Francis gives the film a lush,colorful look and the staking scene is a doozy ! Great fun for Hammerheads !
