It has been far too long since our last poll and I can only put it down to laziness, I’m sorry. But anyway, with Insidious: Chapter 2 hitting screens this week I thought I’d relaunch the Blueprint: Review polls with a vote for people’s favourite horror sequels. Most even just relatively successful horror movies seem to get an endless stream of follow ups and most of these tend to be poor cousins to their predecessors, but occasionally a gem is found in the rough. Below is a list of ten that tend to be better appreciated than others (thanks to for giving me some ideas). There are a couple of biggies like Aliens and Silence of the Lambs which could have made the list, but the former feels more like an action film to me and the latter more of a thriller, so I skipped them when collating the list.

As ever, give your thoughts on your favourites and any I might have missed in the comments section.

    Dawn of the Dead, and Day of The Dead don’t feel like sequels because none of the same characters are in each film. The only thing that is constant is the Zombies. Another horror sequel I liked is Ginger Snaps: Unleashed

    True, although the trilogy does work as such in charting the continuation of the zombie invasion. They only just arrive in Night, have started to take over in Dawn and the human race is barely left by Day.

      It’s part of a very loose trilogy so I almost didn’t put it in, but I couldn’t resist. I took my ideas from though so I can’t really take any credit 🙂
