If you were looking for sequels to start slapping you in the face some more, then B-D has just the prescription for you. In their AFM coverage, it was learned that BOOGEYMAN 3, THE GRUDGE 3, MESSENGERS 2 and RISE 2 are all in the works. Each film already has their synopsis and directors attached. Each one is listed below:
Written by: Brian Sieve
The follow up to the successful hit Boogeyman (2006) is the story of an evil that every culture has tried to define by giving it a name and a face. For college sophomore Sarah Morris, that evil is the Boogeyman. When Sarah witnesses the alleged suicide of her roommate, it sets off a supernatural chain reaction. As she tries to convince the rest of her dorm that the Boogeyman does exist, the evil force grows stronger and her friends pay the price. Now Sarah must stop this ultimate evil before the entire campus falls prey.

I don't know how I feel about more sequels or sequels in general for these films. I feel like word of this strike is just making producers go into a frenzy to make a sequel to anything that made remotely any money.
