Sequels are a touchy subject in the horror community. Many genre fans believe that, at best, sequels are a cash grab, and at worst, they destroy the sanctity of the original films. Those things may be true, but dumb horror sequels also provide an endless amount of entertainment for audiences who just want to have a good time.
Just because a sequel is dumb (and there's no shortage of dumb horror sequels) doesn't mean it doesn't do something smart. Sequels like Halloween: Resurrection and Slumber Party Massacre II might not be on the honor roll, but they both do things that would become the norm for horror movies years later.
Don't worry if you love these dumb horror sequels - we do, too.
