Wes Craven's New Nightmare – The best thing about this sequel is it brought Freddy back to his horror roots. No more funny puns delivered in Arnold Schwarzenegger fashion. Plus, Freddy is now roaming the real world, not the fictional film world where he started.

Jaws 2

Score: 100%

Jaws 2 – The first film kept me out of the water all summer long. The sequel, thankfully, was more than just a rehash. This time the shark is bigger and even takes down a killer whale.

Aliens

Score: 100%

AliensAlien introduced us to the now well-known alien species that attacked from darkened corridors. It is hard to say the sequel is better because it is more sci-fi action than horror. Although it is a lot like comparing apples and oranges, many fans feel that Aliens is a better movie.
