Horror franchises are usually driven right into the ground. It’s sad to say this, but since horror is such a lucrative genre that is oftentimes made on the cheap, sequels will often be churned out, sometimes yearly, and it gets to the point that the franchise becomes derivative. But there are some horror franchises that actually do tend to shine, and this is a list of those franchises. Now, while some of these franchises did eventually wear out their welcome, if there is more than one great movie in their respective series, then they have earned a place on this list. Because, hey, it’s not easy to scare people more than once. Just ask Shyamalan.
