Revenge

The Middle-Beast Syndrome

Have you actually sat through The Exorcist II? No one really likes Exorcist II. No one loves Insidious 2, and they still won’t when part 3 comes out. It’s tough being the middle child in a horror trilogy. Sci-fi? That’s a different story (Aliens, Empire Strike Back, etc). Horror has been less fortunate with trilogies. […]
