Liked the first two, but not fussed by the third. The thought of a new trilogy does not fill me with enthusiasm, but ready to be proved wrong.

Some of these horror franchises devolve into soap operas.

I share your lack of optimism, to be honest Pete. There does seem to be a remaking/renewing/reinventing theme going around at the moment. An originality drought, perhaps?

Well, there have always been remakes, so that doesn't trouble me so much, albeit new would be better.

With this series it's the credibility angle that gets me. These characters have already been on the 'to do' lists of four serial killers, and now there are going to be another three episodes :roll:

How can anyone just be this unlucky?

And all the smart, self-referential genre stuff that made the first movie stand out, has run its course.

Diminishing returns, I fear. The only bright spot(s), is Williamson back for "4", and if he chooses to direct Craven is several years overdue for a decent movie.
