The 20 Worst Horror Movie Sequels Ever
Sequels are nothing new in the horror genre, and everyone knows that the majority are less than stellar. Here’s a list of some of the most embarrassing entries into our beloved genre.
This list is comprised of 20 sequels that are just downright awful. Their awfulness is so extensive that at times they’ve tarnished the highlights of the original material. Most are unintentionally funny, but all are magnificently bad.
20. Return To Sleepaway Camp
The Horror: Camp Manabe is open again, and it isn’t long before the bodies start piling up in the usually grisly Sleepaway Camp manner.
Why So Terrible? The other Sleepaway Camp sequels weren’t exactly masterpieces, but this belated fifth entry (which ignores the events of SCII and III) tops them all for absolute inanity. Terrible twist, too.
19. Blade: Trinity
The Horror: Blade falls in with some geeky, teched-up vampire hunters that include the iPod-loving Abigail (Jessica Biel) and the gym-loving Hannibal (Ryan Reynolds).
Why So Terrible? Blade’s barely in it. Ryan Reynolds is in full cheesy action hero mode. And Dracula’s a beefcake. Just don’t.
18. Candyman: Day Of The Dead
The Horror: Candyman’s back, this time attempting to convince his descendent Caroline McKeever (Donna D’Errico) to become a part of his legend. Or something.
Why So Terrible? A heroine who’s a former Baywatch babe? That’s just the first blunder in this straight-to-DVD threequel, which tries nothing new and is basically just a cheap rehash of the first two films.
17. Leprechaun 4: In Space
The Horror: Space marines encounter a leprechaun who’s kidnapped an alien princess. Then there’s something about a mad scientist, and a whole lot of people blowing each other up.
Why So Terrible? Sure, it’s a camp classic, and one of the funniest movie titles we’ve ever seen, but that doesn’t excuse its existence.
