Chances are you will remember the lovely and talented Amy Smart, who appeared in, among other films, The Butterfly Effect. I personally loved her as a marginally psychotic helicopter pilot in the midst of a surprise breakup in Rat Race, but that’s beside the point. Anyway, you’ll remember her from The Butterfly Effect, and what will interest you at this point is that there will be yet another sequel—The Butterfly Effect 3—and it’s to be produced by After Dark Films.
Perhaps even more shocking—perhaps downright fucking terrifying—is that it’s going to be part of the After Dark Horrorfest.
I…I am utterly at a loss for words. No, seriously. I have about four different streams of invective that I could throw out at this point and they are ALL vying for space in my conscious thought / speech channel like fat kids fighting over free cake. The kindest thing in any of them involves the phrase “what kind of brain-damaged idea is this??”.
More…The first one was all right, but not all THAT great. And the sequel was a direct-to-video sludge pit. Now you’re telling me that you got Holly Brix of “The Lost Girls” to pen a script to a direct-to-video sequel to a direct-to-video sequel to a movie that probably should have GONE direct to video in the first place and it’s good enough for the AFTER DARK HORRORFEST???
I think I’ve found this year’s dog. No, really—there’s a dog in every After Dark Horrorfest…one movie that sucks in comparison to every other movie in the bunch. The first year, it was The Hamiltons. The second year it was Lake Dead.
Now, it’s almost certainly The Butterfly Effect 3.
