    A New Beginning is one of the better Friday films. I also liked Halloween 5 better than most, and I think Texas Chainsaw 3D is the best one since Hooper's first sequel.

    Is Return to Sleepaway Camp considered a 5th? It's as deliberately fucked up as the first, and I'm a fan.

    Easily Silent Night Deadly Night 5, with an honorable mention to Halloween 5.

    For some reason though, I really have a strong itch to re-watch Children Of The Corn V: Fields Of Terror now.

    I went with F13 V, my favorite franchise. I’m just wondering though if we shouldn’t put this poll on hold until we get a chance to see Phantasm V (fuck ya!). :banana:

    I do, but it's one of the more bizarre Hammer films. It's unnerving watching Peter Cushing like that. He was the sweetest guy on the planet. Just took me out of it I guess.

    I was very disappointed in Leprechaun in the Hood. First sequel of the series that really just got it all wrong. And there's not even all that much you gotta get right!

    I don't think I've seen Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed or Taste the Blood of Dracula... Dracula's plot seems vaguely familiar but I don't recall any of it.

    Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker was a surprisingly good, but I don't know if I'd call it good-good.

    The Mummy's Curse (1944) is rather good for Universal sequels that far down the pike. Pretty far removed from the original Karloff by this point but rather haunting in its way.

    Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) would be the fifth Universal Frankenstein (but only the second Wolf Man) and would get my vote. It has an excellent opening scene and I enjoy it more than the first Wolf Man even.

    Yes, the Evil Lamp sequel. As it's known, and deservedly so.


    I won't argue with you on this. As I won't argue with people who think it's great. But to me it's both Very watchable and Very fun. Ethel is a big part of why that is. It's different- you have to give it that.

    WITCHCRAFT V. is a favorite 5. Wore out that old VHS by pausing too much.

    How about the fifth Godzilla movie: Ghidorah, The Three Headed Monster? First appearance of one of the best Godzilla bad guys ever!

    I had to vote A New Beginning. I think it's underrated as a "so bad it's good" movie. A lot of parts are legit laugh out loud funny when they probably shouldn't be.

    But this is quite a rough list.

    I can't believe I voted for Saw V, but that's actually the best Part V on the list. Every Halloween I made it a tradition to go see the Saw films theatrically when they came out, even though after the first film they steadily went downhill and I really didn't give a shit. However, Saw V managed to, interestingly and successfully, tie up a lot of loose ends the previous sequels created through all their "twists", and somehow made me enjoy the series again for the first time since the first film. But then Part 6 and 7 (and I guess 2,3, and 4) ruined the entire franchise.

    Saw VI> Saw V.

    I voted for F13th V. I've always enjoyed the hell out of it.

    Really? I thought Saw VI was the best film of the franchise, along with I and III. V is what I'd consider the worst, with IV and VII not too far behind.

    I enjoyed all of the Saw films except IV (the WORST) and VII.

    V and VI got a bad rap, but I think most people gave up on the series after III and just disliked them on principle.

    I actually remember very little about Saw VI, so I looked back on my rating, and while I still enjoyed V much more, I actually didn't give VI as bad a rap as I remembered, but for me it was pretty forgettable. VII definitely put the nail in the coffin though.

    This one isn't even close for me. Most of these films are among the worst in their respective families. But Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed is THE BEST of the Hammer Frankensteins. Cushing is completely amoral and ruthless. And several of the suspense setpieces are so well constructed that they compare favorably to top-tier Hitchcock. Great film.

    Friday the 13th Part V > Jason X > The Final Chapter > Jason Goes to Hell > Freddy vs. Jason

    Children of the Corn V > IV > VII > VI > III (> ? I didn't see anything after Revelation) (Sorry, Rhett, I still think Fields of Terror carried over Gathering's best feature - atmosphere - and improved upon the acting and character writing)

    Seed of Chucky > Child's Play > 3 > 2

    Hellraiser: Inferno > Deader (I really want to say Inferno was better than Hellworld... Overall, it probably was. But that last 30 minutes. Was... you really didn't want to be in the same room with me when I sat through the last 30 minutes of Hellraiser: Inferno.)
