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.)

Hey, I really like The Evil Escapes. Pretty cheesy and fun, an early performance from Zoe Trilling is always good on the eyes, and the ending shot is HILARIOUS.

The Universal Monster canon as you know gets pretty incestuous as it goes on. House of Dracula and House of Frankenstein are both cross-overs too, and then there are the Abbott & Costello movies. I went by the Wikipedia chronology, which really only lists Invisible Man and The Mummy as having a 5th proper film. I had to cut Invisible Man at the last minute to make way for Leprechaun in the Hood. Those are the kind of tough decisions we have to make around here...

Crazy. Never knew anyone actually watched these movies. Have you seen enough of them to give us a ranking of each in the series? Genuinely interested. Haven't seen any, but was always impressed with at the very least the continuity of the covers for the 10+ flicks.

I've said it here before, but I really think SAW 4-6 did something few other sequels ever dared do, not resting on the laurels of the series like so many later sequels but instead going full on insular in folding back upon the past and present until they both become a horrible blur. Part of that is out of necessity because of Jigsaw's fate, but still, it was a blast seeing just how insane everything got by the end. I don't really know how people can like one of the 4-6 films and not the other, they really are almost all on the same level for me. There was a definite fall-off with 7, but it was still fun. IT's 3 that I'm surprised anyone likes. That one is like plaster, just trying to patch up all the dead ends and holes in 1 & 2 before we get the meaty story that starts in 4.

After the lousy The Final Destination, Final Destination 5 was suprisingly really good and was a great wrap up of the series (although I bet another one comes some day). It gets my vote as best on the list
