Didn't think they were making another one. First I head of it.
Why is it coming out in August? Seems too early for Halloween, and too late to get the DVD out for Halloween.
Two possibilities. 1) The first movie was released in August, so they are following the pattern.
2) August tends to be the dumping ground for bad summer movies, much like Jan/Feb is the dumping ground for bad winter movies. The idea is that it won't have much competition, so it'll be successful.
