5 Horror Film Franchises That Got Better Later in the Series

Are there any scary movie franchises that you believe get better later in the series? 

Redditor u/KungPowChicken23 asked, “What horror franchises do you think got progressively worse with each entry?”

In a strange turn of events, the comment section voted to name which horror movie franchises got better in their progression, not worse. So here are the top franchises voted as getting better with time. 

Redditor theneuneu admitted, “I don't know about better, but Psycho II and Psycho III were very consistent and good. Psycho IV isn't terrible, either.”
