They actually made a Sadako 3D 2. Oh dear.... seriously the worst film in the franchise by far.

Please don't. Nobody wants to see another crappy Ring film.

Yet another sequel sometimes means that you don't really care the issue of continuity/quality (The Land Before Time and Air Bud sequels/spinoffs, anyone?). I think that often having 1-2 sequels should be enough.

When it can really get bad is when a: the first movie didn't do so well; it features little to none of the original cast/staff; and how many years it's been since the last film came out.

Ring movies are great. How many more can he have up his sleeve? Sadako will be busy.

Geez, garbage in garbage out. The Ring never should have gone past the first film. That one is great. Ring 2 was an abomination and this one sounds even worse.

Uh-uh, pal. To those of us with longer and less forgiving memories, he's the Batman & Robin and Lost in Space writer.

NEVER. FORGET. Mad

Those other 3 aren't exactly advertisements of talent either. I saw Winter's Tale on some Worst of the Year lists.
