AYAOTD sure was scary for a kids' show, far moreso than many graphically violent R-rated Horror movies.

Certainly not a series, but to me, one of the all time most frightening films: "Wait Until Dark" with Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin.

Wait Until Dark (1967) - IMDb

Alien
Predators
Jeepers Creepers, only the first one

There's another with at least 2 movies about a preacher doing an exorcism as a sham only to find out it's not a sham at all. The first one was really good, the second, meh.

Of the following Horror series with at least three or more movies, which is your single favorite entry in each? Just cut and paste the list and replace with your choices and feel free to add any other series I forgot.

---

Friday The 13th
Halloween
A Nightmare On Elm Street
Saw
Scream
Evil Dead
Phantasm
Alien
Predator
Hellraiser
Child's Play
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Final Destination
Insidious
The Conjuring
The Purge
Paranormal Activity

With regard to all of the above, the first movie in each series is the best (some flirt with, and meet, classic status). Exceptions include Final Destination and Paranormal Activity, which to me are subpar shock-suspense horror films. ANoES is overrated, too, but it has its fans.

Return Of The Living Dead - Part II
Poltergeist - Poltergeist II
Jaws - Original
Cube - Original
Tremors - Original
Leprechaun - Original
Blade - Blade II
Wishmaster - Original
Warlock - Undecided between either of the first two
Amityville - Only seen the original, remake and It's About Time
Resident Evil - Seen the first two, need to see the rest to make fair judgment
Same thing again, the first movies are the best, except no Warlock movie is a good one.

Where Romero's fine Dead trilogy is concerned, my favorite is Dawn, but I love 'em all.

I do have to ask why you'd rate this one over the 1974 original. I didn't like the redo at all.

I don't dislike the original TCM by any means, I just simply found the remake more enjoyable. Not to say it's better, just more entertaining to me.

To me this is easy. It’s always the first movie...always! It wouldn’t be a franchise if the first movie sucked. I’m not much of a slasher movie fan though, so haven’t seen a lot of the movies here. Halloween was good, one of the best in my opinion. I wasn’t a fan of the Friday the 13th movies. That’s when they went from shock and suspense to blood and gore. I prefer the former. I did make an exception for A Nightmare on Elm Street. That movie scared the bejeesus out of me, but the story was so unique.

One movie I thought was scary but didn’t really qualify as horror was Stir of Echoes. I don’t know why, but it really creeped me out and I thought about it often. It was the bathroom scene where the wife was brushing her teeth, completely unaware there was a dead girl watching her. Yikes!

I did like the first Purge movie, but the rest not so much.
