Psycho Cop 2. Strippers and dorks vs. insane wise-cracking killer cop. Bad goodness ensues!
Ill give the edge to Halloween 3 for this one. A movie that has definitely grown on me over the years.
This was tough. I will have to go with Halloween 3 also. It came in with a completely different storyline totally unrelated to the previous movies. It went from a killer Michael Meyers to the killer halloween masks. It is a sequel that stands by itself without even knowing anything or having to watch the previous movies.
Jason takes Manhattan for me. Jason walking through Times Square at night is one of my favorite scenes of the series.
Halloween 3: Season of the Witch, really just a stand alone film that has nothing to do with the others. I guess the idea was to use the Halloween moniker with new stand alone stories for every sequel. Oh what could have been....
Slumber Party Massacre 2 for me too!!
It takes the standard slasher premises from the first one and catapult it in a wacky rock n' roll nightmare!!
For me a tie between:
Chronicles of Riddick
Dawn of the Dead (and Day of the Dead)
Shakespeare's idea to move the setting of his sequel from medieval / renaissance to modern times was a stroke of genius to revive the franchise...
More seriously, the urban setting of Predator 2 worked for me. And the last segment of The Lost World where the T-Rex runs free in San Diego for everyone to see and believe was fun too.
Rocky IV, mainly because I'm in awe of the awesomeness of Ivan DragOWN.
"I must brake you."
I guess I'm going to pick:
Army of Darkness
I always assumed "break", but "brake" would certainly work in that context, too. Ahh, phonetic ambiguities...
For me... DAWN OF THE DEAD.
I saw the first one as a kid and scared the hell out of me.
I mean, a cottage in the woods with rotting corpses all over the place.
But when I saw thew sequel I couldn?t believe it.
A shopping mall... the space was huge and at the same time more claustrophobic. The fist one was in the country but the second one was in a town.
People are gonna have some fun in the mall but at the end of the day it was George Romero who made fun of us.
Great movie... one of my all time favorites.

Jason X. Todd did an amazing job in taking the character into a completely different environment and still managing to stay completely true him. I truly thought I'd hate it but it was a great experience. There was even a guy in the theatre dressed up like Jason who showed up during the film. These are the type of theatre horror experience you always hope to get.
The virtual reality Crystal Lake gave us a taste of the old yet let us know we were seeing a new experience.
Well, I wouldn't count my primary choice as horror but I love Gremlins 2. Having all of those guys inside a start of the art skyscraper filled with everything you could think of (TV station, toy store, chemisty lab, dentist, and so on) just reeks of all kinds of fun. Plus, you throw in an in-character Hulk Hogan and you put some Faith No More and Slayer on the soundtrack and it's TOTAL WIN.
Now, if that doesn't count for horror, I also love Poltergeist 3 for some reason. I guess you could say it's similar to Gremlins 2 in that it takes place in a skyscraper. I guess skyscrapers are just fun in my mind. Different levels for mayhem and all that. I really loved the parking garage scene in this one which isn't something you'll find in the suburbs.
I love Friday the 13th in general, so I'll go with Jason takes Manhattan. I didn't dig Jason X quite as much. I did enjoy the whole trip to New York and the boat setting for Jason 8.
Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go To College
I will go with Army of Darkness!!!
I loved the way Raimi used the medieval elements, with a present day hero!!!
Wes Craven's New Nightmare! Pulling Freddy out of the dream world was great after that piece of crap called Freddy's Dead. Can you imagine if the NOES series ended with that one?
I think I should just just forgo the whole drawing process and give the discs to you. It takes balls to pick Ghoulies 3, but it deserves it. You may advance to lv. 247.
