Sequels are an essential part of the horror genre. Revisiting a particular horrific scenario allows us to experience new thrills in a familiar setting — when we watch a horror sequel, we're braver now that we know the world and its rules, making us feel more like participants in the terror rather than helpless victims.
Unfortunately, a good horror sequel is a rare thing. It's a daunting task to make a fresh experience out of a now-familiar world. But every once in a while, it works. And works wonders.
With Halloween on the horizon and us in the mood for some franchise-friendly scares with the likes of "Paranormal Activity 4," "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" and "Grave Encounters 2," we've compiled what we believe to be the Top 9 Horror Sequels. Please feel free to add the 10th in the comments section should the mood strike you as well.
