As many respectable, longstanding series as there are, for every one good series there's probably ten bad direct to video ones. Of the more high profile shit that companies have flung at us in recent years, which series of sequels sucks hardest?

I'm voting for Leprechaun because, outside of the original, it's been frustrating to try and enjoy any of the other films. Amityville Horror has had some pretty big duds too although I like Parts 2 & 3 a little bit.

THE HOWLING was a classic. The rest are garbage. PUMPKINHEAD is second. Almost all of the other series listed have at least one sequel that I enjoy on some sort of level. THE WISHMASTER, LEPRECHAUN, GHOULIES, and PUPPETMASTER may compete with THE HOWLING when it comes to bad sequels, however, the original installment in each of the series aren't very good either. As far as I'm concerned they kept the level of quality the same as they always had been: low.

you mean you didn't like howling II:p
for me though i somewhat enjoyed howling II and III for it's awfulness but part IV and VII are two of the worst movies i have ever seen

House. I hated the sequels. All of the other series listed (minus Saw and Witchcraft) have certain sequels that I quite enjoy on one level or another.

Halloween...considering how awesome the original is, every sequel is a massive letdown, although part 3 is a guilty pleasure to be sure. But I couldn't care less about the other sequels that feature Mr. Meyers.

Other than part III, I'd say the Exorcist series.

Four was a piece of shit, three doesn't even really count and five has Joshua in it, but you hated The Second Story? I always had a real soft spot for that one, and I think it improves a lot on the original. Some cool effects too. Add in Lar Park Lincoln, a caterpillar dog and a dusty old corpse named Gramps, and how can you not express affection?

Wow, a lot of crap here, but I have to go with Children of the Corn. Part one was great and then all the rest are pure poop.

I hate all sequels except for some of the Halloween and the Psycho sequels so I can't vote here. I actually think Amityville II:The Possession is better than the original with James Brolin though-creepier.

The howling, didnt even like the 1st one, yawn. The other ones are just fucking weird.

Another vote for The Howling. I don't really like the first, but after that, wow they are just horrible. Nothing redeeming about the whole series for me.

i decided to go with children, although i havent seen the sequels, if you say they are bad but you thought the first one was great, then the rest must be terrible. or maybe, logically, since i differ in my opinion of the first one with you, the rest must be masterpieces... shit.

the end of the original is terrible where he just knocks out the kids. jc, if it was that easy to stop them why didnt he just do that to all the other kids and save us some time.

I always found Children of the Corn sequels to be quite asinine. I just never cared too much for them personally. But don't get me wrong, I didn't absolutely hate them either. I just think the basic "Corn" canon of the series turned incredibly bland after the original. Children of the Artichokes might have been superior. :D

Many worthy contenders here, but I think The Howling consistently set the highest standards for worst genre sequels.

Haha, I actually hated The Second Story worst of all. It's been so long since I've seen it, however, that I didn't even recall Lar Park Lincoln being in it until I saw it listed under her name on a convention advertisement. Since it came as a freebie with the first one, I suppose I should give it another shot. Not looking forward to it though. :D

Give it a shot, man, you might just like it. It's got some cool effects by Chris Walas, too.

Well, yeah, the ending wasn't superb, but the overall movie I enjoyed quite a bit. I love the initial take down of all the adults, and the demise of the Auto Body Shop man. If you think the sequels are masterpieces then we might have to start a poll on whether you should get banned from this site :lol:

Movies come no worse than Howling VII-New Moon Rising...so that series gets my vote. I kinda liked some of the other sequels in the series...bad as they were, but on the whole Howling II-VII are such a tremendous dip in quality from the original...more so I think than all others.

You can put together a pretty piss poor series for NotLD:

Night of the Living Dead: 30th Anniversary Edition (1997)
FleshEater (1988)
Children of the Living Dead (2001)
Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006)

It's a given that Escape of the Living Dead will be crap if that ever gets made.

The Howling sequels. Loved the first two in the series. The rest were boring crap. (At least "Your Sister is a Werewolf" had some fun trashiness going for it.) New Moon Rising killed the series for good. Fuckin' Hee Haw.

I'm telling you all right now, the Howling sequels have got to be the worst, I watched all 7 howling films and by Howling: New Moon Rising (part 7) I was suicidal. That movie is horrendous.

The Howling! I loved the 1st film and it all goes to hell after that.

Haven't seen any of the sequels for: Witchcraft, Fulci's Zombie, Wishmaster, or Pumpkinhead, but out of all those other series it came down to either Saw or Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Since I haven't seen Saw's III or IV, I have to go with TCM. I haven't seen Part III yet, but parts 2 and IV were absolutely rancid, as are the remake and the prequel. So, which one does more damage? TCM.

Jaws 4: Ice pick to eyeballs

I picked Witchcraft based on sheer volume.

SAW. I really enjoyed the first film, but II and III were just awful. Haven't bothered with 4 yet.

As bad as some of the sequels to Howling, Hellraiser, etc. are...there is far more entertainment to be had in those.

I picked the Leprechauns. "In The 'Hood?" plus didn't he go BACK to the 'hood!?!

Amityville II was dope! Part III was stupid, though...

I like ALL the Halloweens...some more than others, but even some of the lesser entries (like VI) have their moments.

I think that if Halloween III had been released just as "Season of the Witch," without any mention of Halloween, it would be regarded today as a minor classic. Which I guess some people already do...

The Howling series. The first one is decent, but the sequels are all unbearable.

Man, how can there be so much collective hatred against HOWLING 2? There is a montage. About boobies. During the end credits. And Christopher Lee with raybans. What more were you guys expecting?

Jaws 4: Ice pick to eyeballs

LOL, yeah and STILL I own all of them. I'm a sucker for Jaws movies. But there is a reason I own them all. Jaws is one of the greatest movies ever made, Jaws 2 is a worthy sequel to the original, Jaws 3 is a guilty pleasure and Jaws 4 was $5.99.

Worst series, though? IMO...Leprechaun. The FIRST one wasn't even good in that series. Started out horrible, and SOMEHOW got so much worse. (I don't know HOW they managed that.)

There's a lot of movies on that list that I love the sequels almost as much as the original, there's some that the original sux and the sequels suck, and there's some that I prefer the sequels to the original (Amityville, Children Of The Corn, Saw). But for a series of really crappy sequels, full of people I want to slap, Return Of The Living Dead gets the prize. The original isn't exactly the best movie in the world, but it's fun enough but damn they should've quit while they were ahead.

Edit: Actually I like part 3 quite a bit. The rest are pretty much crap though.
