Earlier today we brought you a list of the Ten Perfect DVD Gifts for Christmas, but unfortunately this next batch isn’t so great. Over at Buzzfeed, they’ve gathered 35 of the worst straight to DVD sequels ever produced. We all know about the crap that can be found at the video store or on Netflix, but I had no idea how far it could go. In the words of Marlon Brando from Apocalypse Now, “The horror….the horror!”
Here’s some of the highlights from the list:
- Ace Ventura Jr. Pet Detective
- Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever
- Air Bud: Spikes Back
- Road Trip: Beer Pong
- Open Water 2: Adrift
- Home Alone: Taking Back the House
- Into the Blue 2: The Reef
- Legally Blondes
- Lost Boys: The Tribe
- Dr. Dolittle 3: Tail to the Chief
Out of this top ten, I was vaguely aware of two of them and that was by accident. None of these films needed to be made. Seriously, Ace Ventura Jr? Whose bright idea was that? Jim Carrey’s version of the guy was juvenile enough, we don’t need a preteen to take over. And Home Alone Taking Back the House was actually on ABC Family one day and I turned it off out of respect for the original. I just couldn’t do that to John Hughes and Chris Columbus, they deserve so much more.
What is the scariest DVD sequel you’ve come across?
