Why do they make Sequels of Bad movies? Can anyone remeber a good Sequel to a bad movie? if so please tell me, I am sure there are exceptions, but I can not think of one at the moment.

film companies generally green light sequels as a means of revenue raising.  In the horror genre they have almost become financing whores for larger projects.  Films like Tremors have substancial cult followings and it makes good financial sense to green light a low budget film that might make a little money for a bigger budget project.

I can only think of five superior sequels (Aliens, Terminator 2, Godfather 2, Wayne's World 2 and Austin Powers 2) and I wouldn't say any of their prequels were bad.



Fright Night 2 maybe?  Not that it was a huge improvement, I just loved that bug-eating vampire.

There are worst sequels then "Phantom Menace", or is it when you compare it to the original?

Personally, if you want crappy sequels to crappy movies, you cant go past Evil Dead.  The original movie was bad.  The sequel Evil Dead 2 was even worse and the final Evil Dead: The Army of Darkness - well, they knew they were onto a bad thing but kept going and made it a comedy.  Now look at them, cult movies and very funny - cant wait for the musical that's supposed to be in the works.



Also, a friend of mine has a crappy 80's rip off of a crappy 70's B grade movie, does that count as a sequel - cause that was funny too.

hey do not knock army of darkness. it is a great movie.  I saw it and did not know it was Evil dead part three, I though it was a stand alone movie. the evil dead trilogy is strange they go from b grade horror to special effect horror to midevil comedy horror.

I have the ultimate sequel, why make one sequal for one film, when you can make one sequal for two franchises.  eg Freddy Vs Jason.  If the have the line lets get ready to rumble (or some wise craking rip off), then they have gone to far.



Does the winner take on lets say Michael Myers.
