The horror genre is fairly infamous for having a pretty terrible quality-to-crap ratio in an overall sense, and the picture doesn’t get any prettier when just looking at the long history of sequels. There is a shocking number of horror franchises with numerous terrible follow-ups, most just made as cash grabs or in the hopes of finding a cult audience. That being said, there are a few diamonds in the rough, and it’s those titles we want to shine a light on today.

Last year we made a ranking of the top 10 horror sequels of all time, but James Wan’s The Conjuring 2 - a great horror sequel in its own right – arriving in theaters this week, we figured now would be a good time to add to that list. We’ve collected a list of seven more movies that have surpassed expectations from the genre, and resulted in damn fine entertainment. Is your favorite on here? Read on and find out!

Return Of The Fly
Return Of The Fly
The original The Fly from director Kurt Neumann introduced a fantastic horror/scio-fi concept in its tale of a teleportation experiment gone wrong, and what makes director Edward Bernds’Return Of The Fly a worthy follow up is the fact that it builds on the premise while also presenting a new story (an important quality for any sequel). The movie takes the weird science from the first movie and expands it with some seriously creepy results. If you’ve ever wanted to see what happens when a man is spliced with a guinea pig, this is the film for you.
