From random films with altered names to unrelated storylines, we take a look at 15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels...
The profit-driven nature of filmmaking usually means that, if a movie's a hit, sequels follow. And it's sometimes the case that, particularly in the realm of low-budget sci-fi and horror, those sequels are trotted out in a rush, or don't have anything to do with the film they're following.
This isn't to say that the sequels on this list are necessarily bad - it's a proper mixed bag of the great, the mediocre and the downright awful - but in each instance, these sequels have only vague links to their predecessors, or worse still, they're entirely different films rebranded to fit an existing franchise.
Our list is by no means definitive - rather, we've chosen a collection of films that we find the most memorable. »
A whole mess of factors goes into what projects a director takes on. A young up-and-comer might be happy just to get his first directing credit, regardless of what it might actually be about. A director who's been around the block might pick up a project way outside of their wheelhouse just for the experience. And the promise of a couple bucks doesn't hurt, either.
In other words, sometimes you just can't pin a filmmaker down. Here are some rather odd and unexpected director-movie pairings.
Between "12 Angry Men," "Network," "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Serpico," it's fair to call the late Sidney Lumet an all-time great. But considering most of Lumet's career was dedicated to crime and drama, "The Wiz," a musical "The Wizard of Oz" adaptation set in Harlem (and, later, Oz), is a definite oddball in his canon. Starring such powerhouses of African-American culture as Michael Jackson, »

As Hollywood pursues plans for a reboot of the time-travelling cyborg tale, perhaps it's time for the powers that be to ditch Arnold Schwarzenegger and take a punt on some new talent
There's something you should know about the Hollywood types in charge of the Terminator franchise. They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until yet another sub-standard sequel to James Cameron's near-perfect brace of sci-fi movies clinks and clanks its way into cinemas.
The latest effort to bring the Terminator back to the big screen is being mounted by sibling super-producers Megan and David Ellison, respectively the figures behind Zero Dark Thirty and Star Trek into Darkness. This week they announced plans to partner with Paramount to put a fifth movie in the series into production for a 2015 release date. »

Does anyone remember the reality competition series "On the Lot" from years ago? Probably not. The shortlived series took the "American Idol" mold and applied it to filmmakers, where the audience voted on a group of 16 aspiring filmmakers vying for a development deal at DreamWorks. Steven Spielberg was an integral part of the show, and now his discovery from the series is getting a real feature film directing gig. The Wrap reports that Zach Lipovsky, the winner of the competition, will direct the reboot of the campy horror franchise Leprechaun for Lionsgate and WWE Studios. Sounds like a dream come true! Read on! In all seriousness, a film like this could serve as a great launching point for Lipovsky. After all, James Cameron directed Piranha Part Two: The Spawning before he took on The Terminator, so anything is possible. WWE wrestling star Hornswoggle (above) is taking the title role, but »
