Spooky Franchises ranked
Show No Mercy

Evil Dead - Straight up, the best there is. All three films are goddamn classics. The remake is also quite awesome, despite the flaws. EVEN THE TV SHOW RULES! Hail to the king, baby.
Hell Awaits

A Nightmare on Elm Street - Now this doesn’t have the most amount of amazing movies in the franchise, but the dream elements make even the bad entries rather interesting due to the dream concept. Also, Robert Englund is so charismatic that even the shlocky Nightmare films are infinitely more entertaining than other horror shlock. Dream Warriors and New Nightmare are classics tho < 3333
Reign in Blood

Romero’s “of the Dead” - Three perfect films. I don’t love this as much as Nightmare, but technically this is more perfect. Some of the best gore effects ever, very interesting political messages, great characters, etc.
South of Heaven

Scream - All four movies are fucking awesome. Yes, even 3 despite it’s obvious flaws. Wes Craven directing all 4 movies made this series damn near perfect, which is a rarity in the genre.
Seasons in the Abyss

Alien - The first two are so classic that it elevates this series to the top 5, but 3, Resurrection, and the prequels really knock this down from spot #1. Tbh this should probably be lower, but the first two made me love the universe so much that I sometimes fool myself into thinking I’m interested in aspects of the newer entires. Also lesser entires like Prometheus still have very interesting ideas and amazing creature designs sprinkled in there.
Kill 'Em All

Child’s Play - Much like Robert Englund in the Nightmare series, Brad Dourif makes even the bad entries of this series relatively enjoyable. The first two movies are some of my favorite slasher flicks of all time, and Bride of Chucky is one hell of a good time. I sort of wish Seed of Chucky didn’t exist, though.
Ride the Lightning

Friday the 13th - This may not be the best quality, but goddamn we’ve got quantity, baby. So many stupidly enjoyable films here. Continuity be damned!
Master of Puppets

Halloween - Now, as an individual movie, the first one is one of my favorite films of all time. Infinitely better than any of the Friday the 13th films, for example. The second entry is also fucking incredible imo, although way more flawed. The 2018 film, while also flawed, had moments or brilliance. That being said - 3 is fine, 4 is not great, 5, 6 and Resurrection fucking suck and so do the remakes. Not the best track record for a series. It’s still a classic and definitely deserves this spot on the list, but the boring movies in this series don’t have the charisma, humor or overall enjoyment of some of the lesser entires in other franchises to save this.
...And Justice for All

Psycho - This kind of follows the same pattern as Halloween and Alien. The first movie in the franchise is one of the greatest films ever made, and the second one (while not being classic status) is a really great follow up. 3 and especially 4 bring this series down a bunch as a franchise. At least Anthony Perkins is always great.
Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?

The Omen - If we just pretend like part 4 doesn’t exist, then this is an very solid trilogy. The third one isn’t the best, but it’s not bad at all.
Rust in Peace

Honorary mentions: Final Destination & Saw - These are dumb fun. Saw sometimes thinks it’s smarter than it actually is, which can be pretty detrimental to the series. The insane amount of planning, engineering mastery and sheer luck it would take for this series to make any bit of sense is laughable, and the fact that the movies don’t appear to be in on how insane this all really is kind of ruins some of the fun for me. That being said, they are sometimes surprising and the traps can get very creative. Jigsaw also does sound pretty damn creepy and that really gives this series the extra push it needs. Final Destination know’s it’s stupid and has fun with it. The quality of the movies never reach “great” status but they are consistently fun as fuck.
