Insidious-

As Insidious: Chapter 2 continues to divide audiences we at HeyUGuys started thinking about our own favourite and least favourite genre sequels. At one time all sequels were derided as derivative and unimaginative cash-ins, but with remakes taking on the mantle of ultimate evil is seems that the humble sequel has been relegated to secondary villain.

As we decide which camp we fall into re: Insidious 2, then, here’s our list of the best and the worst five horror sequels.

The Best Of The Bunch

Final Destination 2

Final Destination 2

Probably my favourite horror sequel of all time, Final Destination 2 does everything a continuation should do, regardless of genre.

It’s bigger, drawing together a larger number of characters; it’s bloodier, opening with one of the most OTT disaster scenarios in cinema and finding ever more gruesome and unlikely ways of re-killing its unlucky survivors; and it adds to the mythology, with the re-introduction of The Candyman himself as creepy mortician¬†William Bludworth.

Never again has the series suggested it is anything more than a directionless killing spree.
