15 Nauseating Horror Sequels
Scream 3 – Talk about unlikable sequels. Wes Craven’s third Scream picture not only jumped the tracks, it completely embarrassed itself and – in the minds of some – tarnished the strength of the franchise as a whole. The synergy amongst the cast has gone AWOL, leaving Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox to carry the show themselves with absolutely zero backup. Sadly, that doesn’t quite pan out, and neither does the story, which feels rushed and murky. The mystery died somewhere in pre-production, and not even a cameo from franchise favorite Randy (Jamie Kennedy) and a handful of genre nods (a cameo from Roger Corman, Lance Henriksen portraying a scumbag bigwig named "John Milton," for example) can save this miserable waste of time and money.
Lost Boys: The Tribe – Okay, truth be told, this just might be the very worst genre sequel shot in the history of celluloid. Quite literally everything about the picture is miserable. The story is abysmal, there’s a terribly disconcerting incestuous tone to the film, the villains look like the kind of tool bags who get the crap beaten out of them at the local pub after running their mouths to the wrong patron, and the sudden X-Games design to the film is revolting. Seriously, this is an extreme X-Games flick with depressing performers across the board and completely preposterous ideas at work. There’s no way in hell Corey Feldman was proud of this one. I mean, really... Surfing vampires? Have a priest bless the ocean! Story over.
