About Bat 7933 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Always Sometimes Monsters and The Witcher


  1. Halloween franchise, still scares me and the music is chilling. it is much parodied and imitated, it is a true classic. the way horror and suspense should be done.

  2. A lot may disagree but I think the Saw franchise is incredible. The writers were extremely clever in how everything was linked together. I also love the ‘Hello Zepp’ leitmotif (I can’t stop humming it for days after watching one of the films). Oh, and Billy!

  3. My favourite horror movie franchise is I spit on your grave because as a viewer, rather than hiding behind your pillow, scared of the scenes, you’re voting for the Gore and violence to happen because she’s getting her revenge! Amazing! Also LOVE the Saw films and, of course, Texas chainsaw Massacre.. can’t beat a bit of gore! 🙂

  4. The Halloween movies, not so scary now but as a child (yes my parents let me watch them), I’d be jumping out of my seat in fright!

  5. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre used to scare the you know what out of me when I was younger when I used to try to watch it when my friends came round. This outfit would be great for Halloween at work as we all get dressed up and have a best dressed competition 😆

  6. Slient Hill as i loved playing the ps1 game growing up. Enjoyed both the movies and Pyramid Head is amazing. Fab competition i could scare the kids something major haha 😛

  7. The best horror franchise has to be Nightmare on Elm Street – reason is it is timeless, people still watch it today – proof is in the pudding as they say.

  8. my favourite horror franchise is SAW because i love all the traps and that the victims have been chosen in order to rectify something bad in their life.the storyline is good and it has lots of twists and turns.

  9. I love both scream and Halloween Franchises, they’re both definitely the best, although I was petrified of Freddy Krueger when I was a child!

  10. Although you didnt actually see very much apart from a bit of scalp, my choice would be Blair Witch Project (although you had to listen to what people were saying to follow the ending!)

  11. Saw. Unlike many franchises, the law of diminishing returns doesn’t really apply to these films. They’re all highly entertaining and haven’t dated.

  12. Nightmare on Elm Street – first one is one of the best horror films of all time. Yes the other ones aren’t on the same level but they are still fun, gory and cool films!

  13. My favourite horror movie franchise is the British Hellraiser. It takes me back to my childhood when I used to go to the local video rental store and convince my Dad that watching characters like the Cenobites and their leader Pinhead would be character building. And it was – I am still a massive horror film fan to this day.

  14. phantasm. great original film, sequels that were reverential to the source material while expanding the universe the films took place in. one of the few franchises where a viewing marathon doesn’t lead to burn out.

  15. It’s got to be Child’s Play. Yeah the first film was a bit scary but guess I was a kid back then but the films developed and stayed original. Great humour and animatronics and an unforgettable main character.

  16. A Nightmare on Elm Street, it had everything, it was scary it had great gore and was also funny. and although its not a popular opinion I did enjoy the remake aswell, found it less funny, obviously, but thought it was really well done, I mean everyone knows Freddy, what’s scarier than not being able to sleep for fear of death !!!! Will always be my fav franchise in the horror world.

  17. The Halloween movies because of all the M’s.
    Michael Myers, the Monstrous Mute Murderer.
    The Macabre Mask.
    The Menacing and Moody Music.
    All these things go to make the Halloween movies the most Mephistophelian movies ever.

  18. Nightmare on elm street , there’s no where to hide I your dreams and that makes it super scary and the best movies of all time … 1/2 Freddy’s coming for you .. 3/4 you better lock your door … 5/6 crucifix .. 7/8 better stay up late .. 9/10 never sleep again !!

  19. I’m a sucker for originals so I don’t really like sequels. I do love the first two of The Evil Dead series and must of seen them 100 times.

  20. my fav is texas chainsaw massacre because right from the start its scary and each film just gets scarier !!
    i love to watch with the lights out all alone … oh my god … what was that ???????

  21. I would have to say ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ due to the terrifying Freddy character and how each film has its own ‘feel’ and story to it (even the later ones). Everything from the priceless one-liners to the classic kills – this has it all.


  22. It’s scary, it’s psychological, it has bot the jump factor and the gore factor – I refer of course to Halloween – but the icing on the cake from this franchise has to be the outsider addition of Rob Zombie’s version of Halloween – it went into much more depth than the other version. Michael was given much more depth as a character and for the first time, we really saw how he came to be. The character and motivations of Loomis were also explored in more detail and I felt the film presented much more of a story that just gratuitous gore.

    I don;t tend to like remakes but this is one remake that surpasses the original.

  23. There are just so many 🙂 My fave is probably SAW as it includes so many puzzles and conundrums…although I wouldn’t want to have to solve one personally!

  24. a NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET without a doubt!! I have been a fan (!!) of Freddy Krueger since I was 10 years old, the films were awesome and I own the 1-5 box set. The films are still classics to this day…”one two Freddy’s coming for you…three four better lock your door…”

  25. The best horror franchise has to be Nightmare on Elm Street
    his such an Iconic figure in the horror universe
    always memorable from that first glimpse as a child in the eighties
    and hugely unforgettable
    remember whatever you do, DON’T FALL ASLEEP.

  26. Nightmare on elm street, was my first real horror film i watched when younger. Its scary not knowing if whats happening is real or in your dreams, clever films.

  27. I love the Saw Franchise, not only are they incredibly gory but very cleverly made. I especially like twist in the tale which I won’t spoil for other readers 😉

  28. Nightmare on Elm Street – you know something’s coming, you know it’s gonna frighten the life out of you……….and it does!

  29. For me it would have to be IT because clowns truly terrify me and this was the first horror film that had me hiding behind my pillow.


    i must be one of those odd one were horror film don’t scar me. on the other hand my boyfriend who can watch horror movies but scared of Thing which is his fav film but get scared of the bears in adverts – odd hay. anyway i think he look grate in the custom.

  31. My favourite horror movie franchise has to be Nightmare on Elm Street. The grown up version of Dennis the Menace, irconic black & red striped top. Had to be good to go for so long.

  32. Nightmare on Elm Street, when i was 10 my mum told me I couldnt watch it, so of course I did, I checked to see if Johnny Depp was trapped in my bed every night for a year! And hid my dads stripy jumper cause it scared me!

  33. The Child’s Play franchise. I had an older sister who watched Bride of Chucky with me when I was well below 18!! It’s safe to say 9 year old me was terrified of dolls for a while, but I still love the films!! So scary!

  34. Jeepers Creepers – Because the creeper was such an original idea and different to the other horror genre villains.

  35. People, people you are all wrong. The best horror franchise by far is The Ring and The Grudge. I don’t mean the American versions either! The original Japanese versions are the scariest movies ever – check them out. The American versions are OK, but not a patch on the Japanese. The trouble with all film sequels is that they are never as good as the original. SAW good film – the sequels rubbish. Halloween good – the sequels utter tosh, Elm Street good – the sequels laughable. I rest my case.

  36. mine changed over the last few years and i found the films that could possible happen ie not fictional really frightened me.
    So i have to say Hostel is my number one, as it seems entirely plausible with the way human nature and pure evilness is changing.

  37. Halloween the original franchise, Rob zombie did a great reboot with the first one but the second one totally lost me.

  38. Nightmare on Elm Street. The thought of not being able to go to sleep without having a live-in nightmare is absolutely terrifying

  39. A Nightmare on Elm St – stayed up late to sneakily watch the first in this series faaaar too young, and wished I hadn’t ever since!!

  40. Final Destination…
    So many ways for death to reclaim his stolen victims – even my mom enjoys them! ;D

  41. silent hill franchise, the first was probably the best ‘cos it related to the game the most, but I loved the game series so anything related is beyond fab! :mrgreen:

  42. I love the Scream Movies, they brought new life to the horror genre, with many twists and turns they were great. Killing off Drew Barrymore in the first scene was so unexpected

  43. Saw – At least the parts of it that I can watch. Some of the moments are slightly obscured by the pillow I usually have to hand

  44. It would be the Elm Street franchise. Scared the goolies out of me. Bet if I watched them now they would be rubbish lol.

  45. its not a very well known film but my favourite is a film called ‘Grave Encounters; about a mental institute. my god i nearly had a heart attack when i watched it!

  46. Childs play was my favourite never looked at a doll the same way again my kids have a few dolls that look like ghey would kill us in our sleep

  47. Poltergeist gets me everytime! – My best friend and I watched it when we were 12 (we weren’t meant too) and it scared the living daylights out of us! 10 years later we tried again and the same, it’s one scary film!!
