How's it going my gumdrops? If you are subscribed to the website iHorror, you probably know about the latest movies in the works.
Are these sequels, prequels, and reboots necessary? HELL no.
All these sequels, prequels, and reboots are the main reason for my indifference as someone, who use to enjoy going to movie theaters. I have not stepped foot into a theater since 2005. Yes, you read that right.
It has been 12 YEARS, since I last went to the theaters.
During 2004, entertainment in general became politically divisive and oppressive. The incessant sequels, prequels, reboots, and remakes made the problems we have worse with today's TV shows, films, and entertainment in general.
And Hollywood wonders why it can BARELY turn a profit off today's entertainment?
Today's screenwriters and filmmakers have no originality anymore and want to keep recycling films, which do NOT need sequels, prequels, remakes, and reboots.
A few years or so ago, I channel surfed, scrolled down my TV Guide, and stumbled upon A Nightmare On Elm Street. I assumed it was another sequel to this Slasher Horror franchise. Instead, it was a 2010 remake of the original movie from 1984.
The remake also had someone else playing the role, that Robert Englund originated. The remake was garbage. Why do Hollywood screenwriters and filmmakers feel the need to beat horses to death and keep beating them, after they've been killed?
Throughout this last decade, I have watched a number of Horror documentaries. A History Of Horror is only 1 example.
Halloween's John Carpenter (the original filmmaker/music composer) if memory serves me right, said that even though the original movie wrapped up everything in the plot, Hollywood keeps wanting more sequels because they keep the franchises active and sequels generate more money.
This is very true. Some movies do NOT need sequels. Hollywood loves to beat a dead horse. Meahwhile, you can sense that some movies with cliffhanger endings DO need sequels.
Speaking of Carpenter, an article was published last year, on Entertainment Weekly. He accused Rob Zombie (the former Horror Groove Metal vocalist of White Zombie) of lying on him. Carpenter even went as far as calling Rob "a piece of shit."
I never bothered watching any of Rob Zombie's Horror films, after painfully trying to watch The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto. Zombie may be skilled at illustrating Horror Animation and Art, but his movie scripts were and still are contrived piles of shit.
As much as I use to LOVE Rob during my youth, I grew up and realized the man is nothing more than a pretentious tryhard, sell out, and a HIPSTER. I am sure Sean Yseult probably wonders what she saw in Rob Zombie as the former frontman and founder of their band, White Zombie as well as a boyfriend.
Since we're already on the topics of Horror movies and sequels, you're gonna love this next sequel, which is currently in production. After nearly 2 decades of talking about a sequel, Deep Blue Sea is being made for a channel with THE WORST TV shows and movies. That being Syfy, formerly known as The Sci Fi Channel.
Seriously?! Not that most sequels, prequels, and reboots excite me or anything, but I am REALLY disappointed with the fact, that Deep Blue Sea is being made to air on a network, that airs the most preposterous and contrived Science Fiction TV shows and movies.
Deep Blue Sea is another example of a movie, that does NOT need a sequel. The sequel is obviously being made to capitalize off the latest Killer Shark flicks and pandering to those fans, who want to see a movie as stupid as Sharknado.
The Sci Fi Horror film, Deep Blue Sea released July 28, 1999 (when I was still in high school). If a sequel wasn't made during the early 2000's, it didn't need a sequel now. I can only imagine how ridiculous Deep Blue Sea 2 will be on Syfy.
If Deep Blue Sea 2 was more like the Killer Shark Thriller, Jaws, I would probably consider watching it. NO ONE from the original Deep Blue Sea (Michael Rapaport, Jacqueline McKenzie, Samuel L. Jackson, LL Cool J, etc.) will be in this sequel!
Knowing that Syfy is currently shooting Deep Blue Sea 2 in South Africa without its original cast, and that they want the film to be more Sharknado-esque, I will pass.
Considering that today's blog is mostly about Horror, Sci Fi Horror, Thrillers, sequels, prequels, remakes, reboots, and killer sharks, it is ONLY fitting to have suspenseful music dealing wiith killer sharks. With that being said, here is Trevor Rabin's score, "Armageddon," from the original Deep Blue Sea Soundtrack.
