It seems like every time I turn around, there’s another movie sequel slated to hit theaters. And let’s be honest: sometimes it works, and sometimes it really doesn’t. I bet no one will ever forget the….uh….”classics” such as Friday After Next, Caddyshack II, S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale, or Poltergeist III.
But as often as it doesn’t work, sometimes the sequel comes out to be even better than its predecessor. In fact, one of my favorite movies of all time is actually a sequel! Some of the greats, like Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Dawn of the Dead are very successful sequels that proved to be better than the originals.
So take a look at this list of sequels that were actually better than the originals that they followed, and vote for your favorites!
