Jack Brooks sequel?

100%

I got a huge kick out of JACK BROOKS: MONSTER SLAYER, a rubber-suited cheapie that elicited memories of early Raimi and fun junk like the GUYVER movies.

It sounds like there will be more plumber-versus-beastie mayhem -- director Jon Knautz talked to Bloody Good Horror and says that a sequel script is in the works. "We didn't have the money to do a full blown action/horror movie with part 1", he says, so the follow-up will have many more (and better funded) monsters.

The plan is to get the production rolling some time next year, money permitting. The sequel will find our reluctant hero forced to work with a partner to stomp the aforementioned higher-finance fiends. Knautz plans to stick with the old-school 80s flavor but says "This time around it's funnier, scarier... as of now it's definitely creepier, more action. All around better."

Extra Tidbit: The flick is now available on DVD.

See man , if these small indies do well , as in people buy the dvd so they can make a profit , as opposed to downloading and screwing the filmmaker , we get sequels such as this for deserving films ( and some stinkers too ) .

I haven't seen this yet , but i was intrigued after i caught the trailer , i'll have to get my bum in gear and buy a copy , this way they'll have more money for makeup fx :)

i'm soo down for this, i just watched the first one last night and i loved it. it reminded me of big trouble in little china mixed with evil dead 2, i really hope the sequel gets a better theater run, i know it wont open in huge multiplexes, but hopefully it'll run coast to coast in more indie theaters.

I just finished this movie and can't wait for another reason to watch it!

Maybe someday they could team Jack up with Ash in a monster movie of epic proportion.

This film has easily been the biggest surprise of the year for me so far. I was clamoring for a sequel the second the first one ended. I'll be championing this film all the way through.
