View Full Version : renting a sequal before you see the original

06-14-2002, 07:29 PM
Argh!! It pisses me off sooo much, when I cannot find the original to a series, but the sequals are EVERYWHERE!!!

I tried for soo long to wait until I could find Maniac Cop before watching part two and three, which seem to be Everywere, but I couldn't wait any longer..It's safe to say that I really made a stupid decision.

~~I'm desperately trying NOT to rent the phantasm sequals before I check out the original..but I dont think I'll make it.. http://www.joblo.com/ubb/frown.gif

I'm sure this has happened to all of you, my wonderful schmoes. What are your thoughts on the issue... Wil you go ahead and rent the not-so-stellar sequals before you see the original, or does it not bother you as much as it does me?

I saw Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness before Evil Dead also. It makes much more sense when you watch them in order. It was somewhat confusing to watch them in bass ackwards order...Army of Darkness, then Evil Dead 2, then Evil Dead...

The same thing happened to me and the Howling series. The whole damned series sucks. Part 5 is the only one worth watching.

I watched the Evil Dead series in reverse order too.

I saw Halloween 2 waaaaay before I saw the original. Fuckin USA network only showed part 2 for the longest time.

I saw the whole Evil Dead trilogy backwards.

I saw the Evid Dead series in this order.

Army of Darkness-&gt; Evil Dead-&gt; Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn

I saw Phantasm: Oblivion before Phantasm 2 and 3 http://www.joblo.com/ubb/tongue.gif

Saw bride of chucky and CP2 before the original, number 1 rocked other ones stunk!

I know what u mean. My shitty blockbuster only has Hellraiser III and Boodline, so I could never see the first Hellraiser. Then I went to another Blockbuster where they had all five so I got it. They also only have ROTLD 2, not one which pisses me off. I despise video stores that don't have all of the installments of horror series.

That is one of the worst things you can ever do. They're the worst films to see out of order. My friend saw Phantasm 1, then 4, then 2, then 3. He only likes the first because he saw them out of order. I always view horror series in order. Except the TCMs because I was told 1 and 2 were the only ones connected.

06-15-2002, 01:35 PM
Thanks Shape31. it really looks like a series that would have to be watched in order.

06-15-2002, 03:09 PM
I still however saw all the series, and...it's still a shitty series http://www.joblo.com/ubb/wink.gif And needs to be stopped!

06-15-2002, 04:09 PM
Although I try to prevent it from happening sometimes I can't. I saw Sleepaway Camp 3 without watching the first two cause I couldn't find them anywhere. It happens. Well thats all for now GOoD JOURNEY my fellow schmoes.

Note that this jackass friend I was referring to who viewed the Phantasm out of order was NickBabs1186.

And Nick, shut the fuck up about the Phantasms. I know for sure you'd like them better if u did what was right and view them in order like you should with any movie series, but NO! u have to be a dumbass!
