One of the best things about video games is that when they do well, a sequel doesn't usually take long to follow. Add to that the fact that increases in graphical performance and other technical aspects of gaming hardware means that most sequels tend to be bigger and better than their predecessors. Granted, that's not guaranteed, and an advanced follow-up that's a crummy game will still be a crummy game.
When it comes to horror games, often, less is more. You don't need picture-perfect gore to scare the crap out of the average gamer, so sequels aren't always better than the original. It happens rarely, but it does happen, and these 15 horror game sequels are actually better than the originals they followed. Some of the games on this list are better than their predecessor in a long line of sequels, while others are simply better than the first entry in a franchise.
Take a look at the games below, and if you see one you played that you think was definitely an improvement on the original, be sure to vote it up to see which one rises to the top!
