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.

5. Aliens

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.
