    Wesley Strick is writing? Man there is ZERO hope left that this movie could be any good at all.

    And the hits just keep ooooooon comin’.

    The opening weekend was crazy though (the coin pulled in). The film was just not fun enough to sustain, as most have attested. I would ask the question what horror films have had staying power at the box office… Also what crappy films reaped big bucks on DVD…

    I wouldn’t call a 80% drop off on the second weekend a “HUGE success”…
