Kasch just called in from AFM with some good news for those of you who dug Brett Sullivan’s Ginger Snaps 2 follow-up, “>The Chair (DVD review); Sullivan and writing parner Michael Capellupo are currently writing a sequel, which is being called The Chair 2: Ressurrection of Crowe.
The Crowe of the title is Edgar Crowe, the long-dead mesmerist who made life so hellish for the heroines in Sullivan’s original. Apparently not only has he not been defeated, but he’s got some new tricks up his sleeve as well. Kasch conveyed that part of the story has to do with a decomposing man who kidnaps a child and places him in the titular device. Then, through a website called Mordecai Macabre, he broadcasts the child’s struggle with instructions to the parents that if they don’t do everything he tells them to, their boy will die in 48 hours.
I never got a chance to see Sullivan’s original so I’m not sure how much of a stretch this will be for the character, but I have to give them props for taking the sequel in a new direction. The Chair 2 is currently in the writing stages so as soon as we hear more on its status, we’ll let you know!
