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. »
Filming of Under the Dome has been going on for a couple of weeks, but we have news of a late addition to the cast. Ned Bellamy will play the recurring role of Reverend Coggins in the upcoming series, according to a recent report.

This direct-to-video movie may not be high on your list, but we assure you, House IV is worth a watch, if only for the possessed pizza scene.
House IV re-acquaints viewers with the original House leading man, Roger Cobb. We find him living with his wife and daughter in yet another haunted Cobb family house. No spoilers here, but let’s just say Roger doesn’t last very long, leaving his daughter confined to a wheelchair and living alone with her mother in the crazy mansion. There’s a lot going on in this film including Indian ghosts, toxic waste, the Mafia, and, a singing pizza man. It takes the House traum-com formula to the extreme, especially in the scene where mother and daughter get dinner delivered. Watch it below.
Movie: House IV
Deadly Recipe: This is no run-of-the-mill musical pizza delivery number. This pizza would prefer to eat you before you eat it. »
