Horror Sequels Better Than The Original
 
What are some Horror sequels that in your opinion actually surpassed their predecessors and bettered their concepts? In my opinion a few superior sequels in the genre include:


Phantasm II
Friday The 13th Parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 and New Nightmare
Saw II
Aliens
Predator 2
Puppet Master 2, 3 and 4
Evil Dead II and Army Of Darkness
Hatchet II
Maniac Cop 2 and 3


To name a few, I'm sure there's more. I know some of my picks like Predator 2 may seem odd, but that doesn't mean I dislike the originals, I just like their sequels more. Predator 2 I enjoy better for seeing more of the Predator and in a different setting, and I liked Nightmares 3 and 7 better for being more elaborate and creative than the first Nightmare.

I strongly disagree about Aliens, but that has been debated here a bajillion times. http://images.zap2it.com/movies//42381/42381_ba.jpg

I thought devils rejects was a superb flick, especially in comparison to house of 1k corpses.

If it counts as Horror, I also liked Gremlins 2 better than the first. The first is a classic but the sequel is almost too fun with the mutated Gremlins rampaging in the Clamp building, plus Gizmo becoming a complete badass.

"Jason X" (the first film is boring, "Jason X" is cheesy fun)
"Final Destination 2" (you can't beat the trisecting fence) and "Final Destination 5" (best in the series)
