Movie Poster Madness: The Second Time Around editon

Can't get enough of a good thing?  That's what sequels are for.  For better or worse, let's take a look at some of the movie posters that heralded the second go around of some of our fave horror films...
In a word, dreadful.
I know I saw this, but I can't remember anything about it.

I really wanted to like this one, but aside from the tequila worm monster, it was pretty tepid.
Did anyone even see this sequel?
Actually, I rather enjoyed II and III of the Psycho follow-ups.
I know a lot of people liked this movie (as well as the subsequent sequels to Phantasm), I was not among them.

You don't remember Bruce the Shark eating a helicopter in Jaws II? Or the sheriff frying him with a remarkably accessible deep sea power cable? Has any franchise fallen so far, so fast?

the winner? a close call between Jaws 2 and Phantasm 2, but the balls take the win

I loved Fright Night 2 when I was a teenager. William Ragsdale in a bathrobe, Roddy McDowell camping it up, Julie Carmen vamping it up (whatever happened to her?), the rollerblading undead, where can you go wrong?

Many places it turns out. I saw it again last year and it has not aged well but it was fun at the time.

I loved Fright Night 2 when I was a kid too and I actually just watched it a few weeks ago. It holds up as a solid sequel that had the spirit of the original, but did it's own thing too. I think it's a bit difficult to find now and I had to get by less than legal means, but I would buy that shit in a heart beat if it got a decent DVD release!

As for the rest of these sequels, I love them all, but I can barely remember Exorcist II at all. Solid batch of follow-ups if you ask me!
