This episode will look at the best horror sequels and the not so great sequels of horror movies. The ones we are half they made and the others that still have us scratching our heads as to why they did them in the first place. Sometimes you have that gem of a movie where a sequel is better than the original and those must be talked about.

Of course with everything that has gone on in the world, these types of movies really struck a nerve with most people in 2020 and 2021. Maybe even going into 2022. However as true horror movies fans, we can't ignore the infections that appear on the big screen. It's a real-life fear that we have all faced but it also makes for great movies.
Premieres Friday, October 15th at 10 p.m. ET on AMC and AMC+
The mystical art of possessing psychic powers, good idea or bad? Who knows but again it plays a role in film. From comics to television, the power to read minds or manipulate objects without moving a muscle is a topic of hundreds of stories.
Premieres Friday, October 22nd at 10 p.m. ET on AMC and AMC+
Nuclear War, Alien Invasion, Plagues, Zombies, all make for great movies in regards to the end of days. Watching the complete fall of human civilizations and the modern world is always great for film. It's why we see these movies revisited time and time again.
Premieres Friday, October 29th at 10 p.m. ET on AMC and AMC+
It started with Black Christmas and made its way Silent Night Deadly Night or even Krampus. Halloween isn't the only holiday that cans get creepy. Valentine's Day, Christmas and even Prom Night...ok that's not a holiday but still.
Premieres Friday, November 5th at 10 p.m. ET on AMC and AMC+
Oh yes, the evil scientist creating clones, monsters, women, and more. Dark knowledge that takes someone down a path of madness is always good for a scare. But what about the modern government scientist that takes his powers too far. Maybe creating the secret weapon to save or enslave mankind?
