    Sweet! I didn't like the first one as much as I thought I would...but I'll definitely check out the sequel.

    Also...I didn't realize MTV was bringing back Headbangers Ball! Also great news [​IMG]

    ummm..didn't part one tank? oh, i am sorry, it has actually made back it's production and marketing costs, but still. how 'bout a different story instead of doing a sequel to something that almost no one will even remember as having an original

    The people who saw it will remember it. Plus...

    ...it was obviously created for a sequel based upon the ending.

    The theatrical phase of the film's release is now winding now. HO1KC still has the video and cable market to go. Films that tanked or were only marginally successful in cinemas sometimes become quite profitable and/or attain cult status on video. I think Lion's Gate is(I predict) wisely betting on this factor for the sequel.

    Um, the ending was taken from Jack Hill's early 70's seminal women in prison flick The Big Doll House also featuring Sid Haig (and Pam Grier).

    If Sid is in the house, I'm down for a sequel.

    The sentiments echo. Rob needs to up Sid's screen time.

    Sid Haig was Jack Hill's favorite actor and you can find him in almost all of his films. If you want to see more of him (and haven't already), I'd recommend:

    Spider Baby (horror, very cool Sid Haig performance as member of a family that ages in reverse, becoming more infantile and psychotically murderous/cannabalistic)
    The Big Doll House (women in prison)
    The Big Bird Cage (women in prision)
    Coffy (excellent revenge flick, Hill's best, unfairly lumped in with blacksploitation)
    Foxy Brown (falls more squarely in the blacksploitation category)

    All are available on DVD with very good Jack Hill commentaries.

    $12 million is just 550 theatres is quite good. This film actually had one of the highest grosses per screen in recent years. Add video, foreign, and pay TV revenue and the film warranted a sequel.

    Remember, many of the big films now open in as many as 3000 theatres.
