I love Predator 1 and 2 the same, but I slightly prefer the second as I like the urban setting and new Predator weapons and tech. I think both are equally great, though.

Friday The 13th: Part 2 - Jason's burlap sack with single eye slit created a creepy look. Reminded me of The Town that Dreaded Sundown.

Halloween: Original, Part 2 or, yes....Part 3 (loved it!).

A Nightmare On Elm Street: Original - several "Whoa's" from the audience during its original run in theaters.

Saw: Any - no preference

Scream: Same - no preference

Evil Dead: ED II-Dead by Dawn!!

Phantasm: Original with Part 2 a close second.

Alien: Original. Scary. The sequel was more of an action picture.

Predator: No preference.

Hellraiser: No preference.

Child's Play: No preference.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Original!

Final Destination: Found the series to be boring, no preference.

Paranormal Activity: Nope, None, Nada

Honorable Mentions:

Re-animator: The original is classic!

UCM Dracula: Original, then Son of Dracula

UCM Frankenstein: Best succession of franchise horror films ever...Original, Bride and Son

UCM "Mashup": Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein followed by Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman

UCM Wolfman: (See Above) and the original.

The Exorcist: Original - scary as H E Double Hockey Sticks! The sequels not so much.

Not even going to mention the Hammer Franchises.......good stuff!

Lastly, Jaws (the original) followed by JAWS: The Bloodiest of Waters!

Friday The 13th - Tough call between part one and two.

Halloween - Original.

A Nightmare On Elm Street - Original.

Saw - The 7th for the accidental humor in how ham fisted the attempts at a political message were. Not that I disagree with what the message was, but it was trying so hard to have a point that it was great.

Scream - First, I guess. Not really into Scream.

Evil Dead - Second.

Phantasm - First

Alien - Original

Predator - First
Hellraiser - The first one is a masterpiece of psychosexual horror. The other ones are cheesy. I mean come on, Hell looks like a high schooler's back yard haunt.

Child's Play - Second.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Original.

Final Destination - Eh, not a fan.
Paranormal Activity - First one is alright.

Romero's Living Dead - Day of the Dead

Jaws - First one

Tremors - First one

Leprechaun - Oh come on.

Tales From The Hood - Hardcore Convert

Relating to the subject, I was recently given a copy of The Exorcist from a friend, this'll be my first time seeing it. Should I see the prequels first? I always like watching a series chronologically for the first time.

I literally just finished watching this for the first time and really liked it. I want to see the rest of the series soon, but I doubt any of them surpass the first.
