Longest Running Horror Franchises

If I left out any franchises, let me know. I only included films with at least 3 entries. Many of the films at the bottom have so many remakes and sequels through the years that it is too difficult for me to take the time to trace, so if you have an exact number for Dracula films or Phantom of the opera etc., let me know.
