Final Destination

Killer: Death
Sequels: 3 (another one coming out this year)
Remakes: -
Others: -
People who added this item 2930 Average listal rating (1905 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.7

Incredible plot, good actings, thrilling moments, interesting characters and amazing death scenes.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 669 Average listal rating (438 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.8

Good plot, entertaining death scenes and a great ending. This new one has the same feeling as the two first movies and that's a great thing.


Dan's rating:
People who added this item 2010 Average listal rating (1281 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.2

Still good with a well done connection with the first movie and a plot that try to make more sense and clarify the story.
The characters are still fine and the thrilling moments and the death scenes are remarkable (the accident in the beginning is epic). What a pity the actings are poor (Ali Larter is not included, of course)

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 1703 Average listal rating (1088 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.8

Forget a plot that try to connect things and make sense. This one looks like a remake for the first one.
Yes, they drop away the plot but at least they worked hard on entertainment.
Great characters, awesome death scenes and amazing thrilling moments.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 897 Average listal rating (570 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 5.2

Poor, laughable, awful, weak.
Horrible actings, death scenes and plot.

Scream

Killer: Ghostface
Sequels: 3
Remakes: -
Others: A documentary and a parody that turned into a Comedy franchise (Scary Movie).
People who added this item 3382 Average listal rating (2239 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.2
Scream (1996)

Clever, funny, terrifying, thrilling, classic.
A new-breath for the slasher genre. Great characters, great scenes. Wes Craven showed once again he's a real mester of suspense.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 1154 Average listal rating (730 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Scream 4 (2011)

Once again clever, funny, terrifying, thrilling, classic.
Countless years were not enough to bring Scream down. More blood, more action, more great characters, more killings, more fun. The only reason why Scream 4 is not better than Scream is because Scream is Scream, but it's really almost there.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 2125 Average listal rating (1369 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.2
Scream 2 (1997)

And Wes still got it. A great sequel. All the aspects from the first movie are still here.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 1739 Average listal rating (1112 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 5.5
Scream 3 (2000)

I think they lost it a little bit in this one. It's still a nice slasher, but they put too much the 'comedy' aspect. It was more like a Comedy with some thrilling scenes and not a Horror Movie criticizing it's own genre (like the other ones)

Saw

Killer: Jigsaw
Sequels: 6
Remakes: -
Others: -
People who added this item 4172 Average listal rating (2868 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.6
Saw (2004)

A clever and thrilling horror movie. Started all a new torture porn thing and deserves to be watched.


Dan's rating:
People who added this item 2672 Average listal rating (1712 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.6
Saw II (2005)

A pretty good sequel. More traps and blood. Everything worked fine.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 2072 Average listal rating (1302 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.2
Saw III (2006)

A lot of great traps and deaths with a tone of blood and a good twist ending....

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 1195 Average listal rating (739 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.8
Saw V (2008)

A lot of great traps and deaths with a tone of blood and a good twist ending...

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 947 Average listal rating (595 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6
Saw VI (2009)

A lot of great traps and deaths with a tone of blood and a good twist ending...

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 1426 Average listal rating (884 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 5.9
Saw IV (2007)

I need to tell you this: After the third one I can't see the difference between the movies.
They're all about great trap and death scenes with a twist ending involving all the movies, that's it. And I love that. But I'm just saying because is hard for me to talk about the others, they're just like this: Traps, Blood, Deaths, Twist Ending...

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 757 Average listal rating (501 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.6

The weaker one, but still pretty good.

The Silence of the Lambs

Killer: Hannibal Lecter
Sequels: 2
Remakes: -
Others: A prequel
People who added this item 6476 Average listal rating (4546 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.6

Perfect. I can't say more.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 2499 Average listal rating (1644 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.2
Red Dragon (2002)

One of the best thrillers ever. I missed Hannibal, tough.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 3179 Average listal rating (2030 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8
Hannibal (2001)

Kind of boring but still good.

Dan's rating:
People who added this item 1242 Average listal rating (770 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.2

As a movie is pretty fine, but I liked more when Hannibal was just a crazy, clever and mysterious psychopat and not another victim of the society.

Dan's rating:

My "From Best to Worst" list of Horror Franchises and Trilogies I've watched.

Part 1 (Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th);

Part 2 (Final Destination, Scream, Saw, The Silence of the Lambs);

Part 3 - COMING SOON (Urban Legend, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Evil Dead);
