15 Nauseating Horror Sequels
Leprechaun 4: In Space – Chances are readers anticipated seeing Jason X land on this list. But it is not to be so. For a few reasons actually. Jason X, while full-blown ludicrous (duo Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer initially wanted to play it straight, to the chagrin of the studio execs), was a lot of fun to watch. The over-the-top lines worked in a wonderfully Ed Woodish kind of way, and Jason not only performs the awe-inspiring sleeping bag tree smash, he actually looks cool while doing it. That upgrade was something just unexpectedly amusing and a little badass! Now, when Leprechaun made his journey to space... well, it was enough to make any sane individual want to smash through a window and be sucked into outer space, only to feel their entire body explode just to get away from that annoying bastard. There isn’t an honest quality to the entire film, no lie.
Creepshow III - Wait... Stephen King is out of the mix? George Romero is out of the mix? No doubt, we’re doomed. The biggest problem with this sequel, in all honesty, is the outlandish concept of a few of the segments, a few extremely cliché bits, and their total and complete lack of frightening elements as a whole. There isn’t a single chilling moment in the entire production. I suppose points could be issued for interweaving certain characters in different segments, but that doesn’t really take the viewer to any special place. No, what we have here is a miserably paced film with immensely disappointing visual effects, subpar performances, oft-hideous production values, and too many damn shorts to force yourself to sit through. Did I mention the Creeper is now a demonic hot dog vendor? Do yourself a favor: Don’t watch this movie.
If we missed something, please – for the love of all things horror – let us know!!
