A very special thanks to Hank Sforzini for creating and sending us the absolutely incredible Horror Movie Franchises By the Numbers infographic!

This infographic highlights facts from eight popular horror franchises including The Omen, Alien, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist and Night of the Living Dead.

I have spent the last year working as a freelance writer for ‘Paste Magazine’ and my creative partner, Joseph Bass, and I created this as we are both horror movie enthusiasts,” says Sforzini.

It’s clear that both Sforzini and Bass love the genre as much as we do, and we give our eternal thanks to them for creating this masterpiece of web art!

    Way cool, but incorrect:

    Night of the Living Dead [1968]
    Dawn of the Dead [1978]
    Day of the Dead (1985)
    Night Of The Living Dead (1990)
    Dawn Of The Dead (2004)
    Day of the Dead 2 Contagium [2005]
    Land Of The Dead [2005]
    Night Of The Living Dead 3D [2006]
    Diary Of The Dead [2007]
    Day Of The Dead [2008]
    Survival of the Dead (2009)
    Night of the Living Dead Reanimation [2012]

    12 movies, 10 if you don’t want to count ‘Diary’ and ‘Survival’.

    • weresmurf

      Your list is incorrect.

      Day of the Dead 2 : Contagium was a cheapie sequel in no way affiliated with George A Romero. It was made by Taurus Entertainment who also made the remake of DAY OF THE DEAD which was a vile piece of shit. Those two movies are not considered part of the series, the rights were bought off Romero in an auction and thus, not part of his series. Night of the Living Dead 3D is not part of the series either, why? NOTLD is considered Public Domain, anyone can remake it. The rights were never locked down. The only ‘official’ one is the original. Therefore, the series is ACTUALLY:

      Night of the Living Dead (1968)
      Dawn of the Dead (1978)
      DAY OF THE DEAD (1985)
      Land of the Dead (2005)
      Diary of the Dead (2007)
      Survival of the Dead (2009)

      These are the ONLY ones George A Romero has had a part in. His ‘writing credit’ on the Day remake, was honorary and a joke, he received no money for it. Nothing. How do I know? I did an interview with Steve Miner for it. I also interviewed Jeff Reddick (Both of them awesome people btw) when the movies came out. Night of the Living Dead Reanimation is an independant English production that Romero is in no way affiliated with either.

      6 movies.

      Not 12.

      • FrenchFryGuy

        Well you’re wrong too because the six dead films that you mentioned as the ONLY films Romero had any part in is also incorrect. Romero wrote the screenplay for the 90′s NOTLD remake as well as served as executive producer of the film.

        He was going to even direct it but decided to let his good buddy Tom Savini do it instead for his first ever directing job as they were good buddies and he had worked closely along side Romero on the previous films in the series as an actor, make-up artist and consultant seeing as he had previously been a combat cameraman in Vietnam seeing several real-life dead bodies and how they looked.

    • weresmurf

      Fyi with the disconnected movies you’ve got there, I’m highly surprised you missed DAWN 2004, which was superior to 100% of the Non Romero movies and 50% of the actual Romero movies there…

      • weresmurf

        Shit my bad you did put it, I didn’t have my glasses on. Stupid me :P *slaps self*

        • twoheaded

          Interesting, I had no idea about the Public Domain bit. Didn’t Romero ask Savini to do the ‘Night of the Living Dead’ remake, the one from 1990?

          Eh, either way… 6/7/8 movies… list says 9. It’s still way the Hell cool, but it’s still wrong…

  • flesheater24

    That was amazingly cool.

  • jchano123

    what about Hellraiser?

  • Skullbone

    That’s pretty neat.

  • dr.lamb

    They should do another Friday the 13th soon. Just to make a 13th film.

    • twoheaded

      When New Line obtained the ‘Friday the 13th’ franchise, way back around ‘Jason goes to Hell’, allegedly their contract stated something about doing 13 films. Even though the idea was originally immediately slapped in the face for ever having been born, they still made a comic out of it, which fills me with the hope that ‘Freddy vs Jason vs Ash’ could become #13. Why not? ‘Friday the 13th’ remake, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ remake, ‘Evil Dead’ remake, I think the source material would be recent enough that people would remember it and still go see it. There was a Freddy glove in ‘Evil Dead 2′, the Necronomicon was in ‘Jason goes to Hell’, and Nancy was watching ‘Evil Dead’ in the first ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’. Sam Raimi wants an ‘Evil Dead 4′, maybe they should turn him loose on this, he might like the idea this time.

      • Scorpionsy

        Also, Freddy’s glove popped out of the ground at the end of Jason Goes to Hell (part 9)…and grabbed Jason’s hockey mask and pulled it back into the earth. :)

    • Mucey

      They’d better hurry up if they want to release the 13th film on one of the Friday the 13th’s in 2013. We have one in September and one in December.

  • Joe-Banger

    That was one hell of a bad ass list! I’d love to see more of these lists!

  • Joe-Banger

    And every one else arguing over this list and its time line accuracy, get a life.

  • twoheaded

    …who was arguing?

  • Ravinus

    Should have included Hellraiser.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Great article.

  • Scorpionsy

    Great infographic…excellent work guys!

    I really want an infographic on the Evil Dead franchise and other ED inspired movies (like the original Within the woods that they used to finance ED 1..Drag me to Hell…and Dead Alive (aka Braindead). Did anyone make an infographic for those? I would love to see it. :)
