And the best horror franchise is…

November 12, 2012


Been a while since I really dug an entry in the Alien franchise, but hard to argue the vote when you sure as hell can’t argue those first two movies. Ellen Ripley, man. What a badass.

Swell voting, folks. Hope you got mad candy from the neighbors this year.

Alien: 15 votes
The Evil Dead: 8 votes (would have been my vote)
Paranormal Activity: 6 votes (hot damn…)
A Nightmare on Elm Street: 5 votes (points for best villain)
Scream: 5 votes (am I the only one who liked Scream 4?)
The Exorcist: 3 votes
Halloween: 3 votes (thanks for nothing, Rob Zombie)
Friday the 13th: 2 votes
Saw: 2 votes
Night of the Living Dead: 2 votes
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: 2 votes (never seen it, I feel shame)
Child’s Play: 1 vote
Hellraiser: 1 vote (always been a bit partial to those movies)
Poltergeist: 1 vote
– “Ironman“: 1 write-in vote (assuming we’re talking about the Tetsuo movies rather than Tony Stark)
– “Bad Taste/Dead Alive (Peter Jackson…does this count?)”: 1 write-in vote (why the hell not!)
– “28 Days/Weeks Later“: 1 write-in vote
– “Child’s Play, only because you used to be so afraid of it :)”: 1 write-in vote (they’re onto me…)

Follow-up question: What’s the general consensus on this upcoming Evil Dead remake? Skeptical? Psyched? Serenity now? I gotsta know, son!

    But isn’t Alien more of a sci-fi movie than a horror movie?

      The beauty of Alien is that it’s totally both. After all, Ridley Scott did pitch it to his producers as “Jaws in space.”

    I would have voted for Scream. I did enjoy Scream 4, haha.

    Alien all the way, love how the first two are so different, but both equally as amazing in completely different ways.

    Although not strictly a horror it fits the bill as far as I am concerned. A fine winner.
