Jacob Goodnight is thought to be dead following a murder spree at the Blackwell Hotel, but rises to torment workers at the morgue where he is being kept.
It will be released later this year in the Us.
What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.
In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.
Here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?
2. American Pie Presents: Beta House
Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird sentimentality for the American Pie home release collection. We know that they're not technically canon, »
30 years ago, it was “Goonies never say die!” 20 years ago, it was “Cheer, cheer for Old Notre Dame!” And 10 years ago, it was “There’s some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for!” Now, Sean Astin has a new rally cry for us: “Remember the Sultana!” That phrase goes with a documentary in the works called Sultana, and the actor is an executive producer on the project. It’s mostly the passion of Astin’s longtime friend, producer Mark Marshall, who he met on the set of The Goonies. But the two of them are united on screen promoting the film in the campaign video for a crowdfunding venture launched last month. It’s at Kickstarter, where their goal is $75k to go towards filming and post-production costs. “Voiceover Talent” is apparently a large part of that pie, which might in part mean for Astin himself. He’s set to narrate the history doc »

More than two decades later, and we still can’t look at a cup of water the same.
Just as the rippling water in that now iconic scene signaled the T. rex’s grand entrance, so did Jurassic Park usher in a new era of cinematic innovation. Making a reality of so many childhood dreams, it marries moviemaking wizardry and emotional complexity to electrifying effect. Park also straddles a number of genres (action-adventure, family, thriller, and sci-fi, to name a few) on top of its ready-made merchandising and theme-park ride potential, ultimately offering something for everyone. But the leaps and »

Ok, you've blown my cover Arnold Schwarzenegger pulls the ferret out of the hat to deliver a 90s cinematic gem
Read more from My guilty pleasure series
Having grown up in the 90s, the halcyon days of bad/good cinema, I feel like pretty much every film I ever watched and enjoyed before a certain age has since become a "guilty pleasure". This has made it hard to settle on just one.
I was about to profess my love for She's All That, then I remembered the hacky sack scene "never let it drop" and the misogyny. Hot Shots Part Deux was a frontrunner, but I couldn't bring myself to re-watch it in case, in retrospect, it all the frying-the-eggs-on-the-belly scene felt a little soft-boiled. Could I perhaps wax lyrical about Free Willy or Jumanji?

Is Litchfield getting a new inmate?
We won’t know for sure until the second season of Orange Is the New Black hits Netflix — but either way, here’s one thing that’s certain: EW has confirmed that Tank Girl Lori Petty will appear in at least one episode of the prison-set dramedy. (TVLine first reported the news.)
The streaming service won’t say who Petty is playing, or even how many episodes will feature her. Still, this should be welcome news for anyone who’s a fan of the actress’s work as surfer girl Tyler in Point Break, »
