...and I watched all of The Resident.

For the love of God, leave it alone. Actually no don't, because The Grudge 2, The Ring 2, Hostel 2 and The Descent 2 all did massively well, didn't they?

Without the involvement of Goldman, Hopkins, and yes, Radcliffe, this will be a shit sandwich. A straight-to-DVD shit sandwich, of course.

Uh, hello?? Why did it do such good business???? Yes, it was a good story and scary and entertaining. But it made money because the majority of the audience went to see Dan Radcliffe! Honestly Hammer, wake up and smell the gillyweed!

What a cynical and shameless cash in. Treating the audience as punters to be fleeced. I'm sure it will make money, but 'Hammer' will lose respect for this. So all the talk from Hammer about it's legacy and passion for horror is pure rot, it's just about making money. Well you won't be getting mine.

I only saw WIB because of Dan and I've pre-ordered the dvd. I have no interest whatsoever in this attempt to recreate the certain set of ingredients which made this film so successful - changing the recipe doesn't mean you end up with the same cake.

Because they've never been a company to capitalise on success by green lighting sequels... Jesus!

Thing is though, she's had 30 years to come up with a sequel to The Woman in Black, yet it takes a wad of cash at the movie box office to do it? Can't help thinking she's being a bit of sell out there.

Lost respect for Hammer because of their making a cynical and shameless cash in? Erm hello? Thats what they were always about. How many Dracula and Frankenstin sequels were three? And Twins of Evil a lesbian vampire booby movie. All shameless cashins and all to a greater or lesser extent brilliant

well, she was moaning recently that she made no money out of WIB.

The Woman in Black did well because it was different to most horror releases so it appealed to a wider crowd and it had Daniel Radcliffe. He did a very good job in the film and an even better one of getting out there and promoting it. Perhaps this sequel will try to repeat the same success by attaching actors that will draw a crowd in? But it seems unlikely.

The Hammer sequels you mention were never made just to make money. If you think that then you clearly don't know or understand Hammer. This however is just blatant.

Eurgh. Bad idea. It is a complete, and completed story. There is nowhere for it to go.

Actually there was a sequel. It was called 'The Woman in Black 2: The Bitch is Back'

Oh come on Scarlin. They wern't cashins? Really. None of thoese sequels to Dracula & Frankenstein (which as novels were to quote Revstar completed storys with nowhere to go). Are you really telling me that The Satanic Rites of Dracula and Dracula AD were not shameless cashins?
