1. Scream 2
Why it works: The kills are much more creative, it's incredibly fast-paced, and we learn a lot more about things we thought we knew from the original movie.
2. Friday the 13th Part 2
Why it works: This is the first time we see Jason Voorhees as an adult on screen. Enough said.
3. Evil Dead II
Why it works: It's essentially a remake of the first movie, but better.
4. Saw II
Why it works: Several new death traps are introduced, and Beverly Mitchell (a.k.a. Lucy Camden) dies a pretty painful death.
Why it works: More special effects and we get to see Sigourney Weaver kick some alien ass all over again. Win-win.
6. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer
Why it works: It's the only movie we get to see Brandy kick some ass.
7. The Devil's Rejects
Why it works: It's as equally gruesome as it is terrifying. As if that wasn't enough, something like this could actually happen. Yikes.
8. 28 Weeks Later
Why it works: The opening sequence is equal parts amazing and just scary as shit.
9. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
Why it works: "Welcome to primetime, bitch!" is a line that will go down in movie history.
