ROSHAN’S ELEVEN: Ranking Horror Franchises

Ok so, I am a horror fan and I love franchises. For me, a horror film franchise is atleast 4 or more movies. I have always watched horror movies but I think it was in 2011 when I really started getting into with a passion. At one point I was only watching horror films and watched a bunch of them back to back for many months. I have since averaged it and do a mix and match. Here are my favourite franchises to watch ranked in order.

  1. Conjuring
  2. The Evil Dead
  3. Friday The 13th
  4. Halloween
  5. Insidious
  6. Nightmare On Elm Street
  7. The Exorcist
  8. Child’s Play
  9. Hellraiser
  10. Living Dead
  11. The Hills Have Eyes

While I do like the franchise and have received hours of entertainment from it, I am not really sure why this franchise is such an American and global icon (marketing and money comes to mind).

ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : Top Films Of 2017 That I Watched

This here little list is my personal list of my top 11 films released 2017 that I have watched. So you might see a couple of noticeable exclusions – that’s because I haven’t seen them yet. I will eventually get to them at some time in the near future. So here is my list:
