    I saw a preview last night. It seems the sequel will be told from the little sisters point of view. Yet in the preview she talks to the bunny? What the hell is that sht? I tell you they have a great opportunity to ruin this!
    Has anyone else seen the trailer?

    You know a sequel's gonna suck when:

    1. the actors are all different
    2. they focus on a couple of recognizeable elements from the first and just bash your head with them repeatedly as if to say "look at me! I'm authentic!"
    3. the trailer comes off like your typical generic b horror complete with gasps and shocking lines like "everyone. is going. to die!"

    Danni Dorko would have been a more suitable title.

    Daveigh Chase is back, and i believe she is the only link between the movies. i sill do not have high hopes, though.

    Yeah...

    Trailer doesn't look too great. One thing I can say about the original was that it was smart. This seems a lot more conventional.

    What he said.

    It looks terrible and what I can see from the trailer the story is just terrible and non-coherrent especially the fact it has no relations with the first.

    She's Samantha Darko. So the only character from the first movie is indeed played by the same actor, and you're incorrect about that one. Although, i agree that there are many other reasons that this does not look good.

    Reminds me of the Butterfly Effect 2 in terms of production value... Pretty skeptical.

    I guess the fact that he even had a YOUNGER sister completely slipped my mind after seeing the first one. What a dull angle to pursue.

    The cool thing about the first movie was not really having the answers initially, and not completely understanding what was going on, being given clues here and there. I can't imagine a sequel really bringing anything to the table. Movies like Donnie Darko and American Psycho do not need sequels and function well as stand-alone cult classics.
