Sequels We Don't Need 2

Welcome back to the second part of bitching about sequels. I have got a few films to moan about but this one has leap frogged to the top of the pile.

Evil Dead 2 - For all those unaware of my stance on Fede Alvarez' remake of the great Evil Dead lets just say I wasn't too impressed. In fact I gave it a 1/10 (you can listen to our original review here). So when I saw the second Fede Alvarez film was in development on IMDb I had a flashback of the film he ruined, lacking any comedy which made the originals so watchable. I thought,what is he gonna do with the sequel?, as Sam Raimi's sequel was more of a re-make itself. Meaning this might be an original idea from the man who gave us a defibrillator from a car battery, and human mutilation which has no lasting effect to its host when they get better. Honestly, the thought of this man doing anything else with this series is worrying. With Bruce Campbell rumoured to return alongside the heroine of the remake (who's name I can't remember and can't be bothered to search out), I can't help but think what we will get is just another splatter fest with no charm. And if Bruce does return as Ash, will it be more comedic because I don't know if Fede can pull off the type of slapstick comedy Bruce does so well. So leave it alone all ready. If Sam Raimi wants to do Army of Darkness 2 fair enough but do not let Fede Alvarez have anything else to do with this series. Fede did state he wouldn't return to do a sequel so lets hope I'm being paranoid and this will never see the light of day. Richee
