Initial word on the upcoming Jack Brooks sequel—yes of course there’s going to be a Jack Brooks sequel—is that it will have more monsters, more budget, and hopefully will find a way to have more terror hotties, too. It’s not like the first one was slack in that department–Rachel Skarsten, Ashley Bryant, Stefanie Drummond, Meghanne Kessels, Meg Charette, and Kristyn Butcher is not exactly a small list—but still, nothing wrong with more.
I think we’ll all be fairly satisfied if they manage to keep the current numbers up. And of course it’s also great news that they’re looking to up their budget and up their monster count. That’s really what made the first Jack Brooks—it’s good to see that they’re planning to play to their strengths for the second.
It’s good to see that straight up, monster-battle driven horror can still find itself a place on video store shelves, especially when it’s as laced with terror hotties as the first Jack Brooks was.
