Poor Kate - still waiting.

May 2, 2006


Fangoria reports that Jan de Bont's Blue Tulip Productions has teamed with Atchity Entertainment on a new feature which represents the first officially-sanctioned sequel to Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Tentatively titled The Un-Dead, after the subtitle of Stoker's original novel, the script was written by Ian Holt and is set 25 years after the book's events. All the surviving protagonists—including Jonathan and Mina Harker and Professor Van Helsing—appear, along with Inspector Cotford, a character cut from the original manuscript, facing the bloodsucking Count once again.

I'll bet at least 4, and perhaps all 5, will be straight-to-DVD releases. The only 2 I could see might get theatrical distribution are Legally Blonde and Wargames.

yup... made for tv movie, aired on abc family i believe. i think a good rule of thumb for sequels is that if the second installment debuts on a cable network in between reruns of "7th heaven" and "who's line is it anyway," a third installment prolly is a waste of time. but hey, that's just a layman's opinion...

I liked #1, but #2 was really, really dumb.

"Cutting Edge 3" -- The romantic drama about the quest for victory among professional ice skaters.

I liked #1, but I probably won't bother with #2 or #3.

"Into the Blue 2" -- A new and exciting installment based on the action thriller about aspiring treasure hunters.

#1 was okay, but I won't bother with #2

"WarGames 2" -- Scheduled to begin shooting in Montreal in November, the thrilling story of what happens when top officials try to dismantle the famous computer.

#1 is one of my favorite movies. I would definitely watch #2, but I wouldn't expect them to be able to duplicate #1

"Hot Dog" - The Sequel?
By Robert Frohlich

Seldom does a movie come along that so clearly defines a sport. For surfing fans it was "Endless Summer," which sent gremlins and hodads alike into California surfshops for appropriate attire and spawned a new dialect - "surf speak." What "Summer" did for surfing, "Hot Dog, The Movie" did for skiing.

Twenty-five years ago, if you entered a theater to see "Hot Dog" you exited a skier for life. A Hollywood cast and crew settled in Squaw Valley, California for 52 days, not knowing they would produce the ultimate sex-and-party ski flick with a fan following as rabid as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."


Was it a good thing for the sport?

"It's still popular because it comes from a skier's point of view," said Tahoe City, California native Mike Marvin, 62, who wrote, co-directed and edited the film. "Every scene has some truth to it. Hot Dog is a compilation of my ski adventures between 1972 and 1976."

Marvin jammed his film not only with bump skiing and downhill racing, but also wet T-shirt contests, gondola nookie, hot tubbing, beer drinking and some toking. Why not take up skiing?

The film opened in January of 1983 on 1200 screens around the country and jumped to number two behind only "Terms of Endearment." Playboy playmate Shannon Tweed forever changed winter with a dip in a hot tub. Tahoe stuntman Robbie Huntoon, however, stole the movie when he skied through a lodge and out a glass window.

Tweed continued to work in Hollywood, starring in dozens of risque B-flicks including the 2001 "Dead Sexy." But several of the film's production staff would subsequently become shakers and movers off the ski slopes.

Stunt coordinator Max Kleven would make "Back To The Future;" Second Unit cameraman Don Burgess would be nominated for an academy award as Director of Cinematography for "Forrest Gump;" Stunt skier Frank Bedor would produce "There's Something About Mary;" actor Paul Rosenberg ran Imagine Entertainment for Ron Howard; Producer Ed Feldman, who mortgaged his house to finance the movie, went on to produce many more Hollywood mainstream pictures notably "Witness," "The Truman Show," and "K-19" starring Harrison Ford.

Squaw is hosting a 25th anniversary tribute to the movie Jan. 20-21. The reunion includes appearances by original cast members, an on-hill event and screening of the picture followed by live music and party.

"Alex Cushing (Squaw Valley's late founder) had to approve the shooting of Hot Dog and I believe he did so against his better judgment," says Mike Marvin, who'd go on to write and direct another cult classic, "The Wraith," starring Charlie Sheen. "On the other hand, he recognized that the production would bring cash infusion into the valley economy, so I always thought he okayed the movie for strictly practical reasons. That it became a hit, a cult favorite, and one of the most successful low budget pictures in the 80's must've come as something of a surprise to him - as it was to me."

Marvin hopes to start production on a sequel to Hot Dog in 2007. "I'd love to film it again in Squaw Valley," he says.

Hills Have Eyes 2- not sure if this is a remake of the original sequel or not. Great trailer: http://www.foxatomic.com/#PAGE_100:movie=/content/movies/trl_hhe2_v01r01.flv

This website talks about tons of upcoming sequels: http://www.sequelogue.com/?tab=sequels

Hills Have Eyes 2

Definitely a sequel to the remake.

This involves National Guard trainees.

Here's the synopsis of the original sequel: A group of bikers, which includes some of the survivors from the original film, embark on a journey by bus to a biker race near the desert of the infamous incidents. However, because of a mistake they are late and decide to take a shortcut through the desert. Halfway through the desert the bus breaks down. While trying to repair the bus, some of the group wander off, and wind up in the traps of the survivors of the mutant family of the first. Then the mutants go after the rest...
