Whenever there is a successful film, often the studio wishes to capitalise on it by releasing a sequel asap. But often the star or the original crew don't want to be involved hence.......cheap straight to video sequels! Often starring a soap or D-list actor and directed by ex-advertising salesman, they are often crap and sully the memory of the original.

Prime examples of this include the plethora of Disney sequels like The Lion King 2, Cinderella 2, Aladin: Jafar's Revenge etc

But when even major studios do this and such dire sequels include;

    

But at the moment this has to be the most entertaining - Click Here

So any others come to mind?

Behind Enemy Lines 2?! Jesus! Plus, I didn't even realise that they'd made a third Addams Family film!

Doctor Dolittle 3 springs to mind.

I have no idea what possessed them to even think about Doctor Dolittle 3, let alone actually make and release it.

How could I forget about the crapness that is Starship Troopers 2?!

This isn't actually that bad but it fits the straight to video criteria to a tee.

I was going to mention 8MM 2. Saw that come into Blockbusters a while ago. Has all originality in Hollywood gone?

Well.......................at least they had the good sense to bring the Hanson brothers back!

Just a shame you've got Baldwin to contend with instead of Paul Newman.

The best bits are the quotes that are on the boxes. They are either:
"Truly Outstanding" by my mate Jeff
 
or
"...this film defies belief."
taken from the original quote:
"One of the most worst films ever, this film defies belief"

     These are to name but three of the straight to dvd sequels to films that came out years again. The Net came out in 1995, bambi in 1942 (a whopping 64 years between sequels), and day of the dead in 1985

God, where do you start with Disney films, practically every one has a straight to DVD sequel, only a few unlucky ones get into cinemas! My most remembered is this one because I was so looking forward to it for my birthday, and it's crap! The only good thing, and admittedly it's very good, is the "He Lives in You" song at the start, which they recognised is amazing as it's used in teh stage show.
