Hold Your Horses, ‘Contracted 2′ Still Incubating…

Contracted 1

Just wanted to clarify something about the reported sequel to Contracted, entitled Contracted: Phase II. There’s a story being circulated today that is factually correct, but puts the cart a little bit before the horse.

While it’s true that an idea for the sequel is being considered, right now it’s a pitch that writer/director Eric England has turned into IFC and Boulderlight (producers of the original film). It’s true that the film is doing quite well and I’d be the first person in line to check out a sequel… but that might not be in the immediate future. It is a pitch that has been turned in. That’s it. There are a BILLION things that need to happen before things get moving.

Here’s England’s instagram photo of a potential title page. It was taken last month.

    Messaged you guys right when he posted it and you guys never got to my email lol

      Ah thank! I actually saw it when he posted it, but we knew it was just a pitch. The reason I wrote the article was that other websites were reporting incorrect information so I wanted to clarify.

    I liked the first one, would be interested in seeing how they go with a sequel.

    I liked the movie but I felt it relied too much on people being complete morons. SPOILERS AHEAD The Dr. was beyond incompetent, her boss letting her serve and prepare food when she was clearly very ill…and the guy that had sex with her. What is he not only blind but he cannot smell the stench of flesh festering with maggots?

      mjm800, i liked the movie too (i LOVED the twist ending!) but i agree w/ you. pretty much every character in the lead girl’s life (be it a doctor or family member, etc) were written to be morons.

      Agreed that pretty much all characters were moronic, but this kind or reminds me of real life. Remember that guy in Florida who took bath salts and ate that poor guys face for 15 minutes in public while the proletariat just walked by?

  • djblack1313

    i’m definitely up for a sequel. all throughout the movie i was hoping we’d learn about/see more of the necrophiliac guy (the one who started everything). i hope the sequel focuses on him. i assume he’s a typhoid Mary type carrier since he didn’t seem “sick” at all (physically, i mean. LOL).

    A sequel would simply be a zombie movie. They need to know that sequels are not something they MUST do.

    fuck this movie seriously I was sooooo pissed so I wouldn’t mind to see another one just for the fact to see zombies but then again it’ll be a typical zombie movie.

    Let’s be real the first one was a cheap zombie film with awful make-up effects cashing in on the recent exploitation of the gay community. Snooze fest.

    Wait, so I am seriously the only one who loved this movie? You people are crazy, that movie was the most unique, interesting zombie movie to come along in years and they’d be crazy not to make a sequel.

      The main character was nothing but unlikable from the very beginning. Bella Swan had more interesting character relationships than her.

        And that was the point, smartass.

        • Josh Johnson

          Just saying, the movie would have been scarier if you didn’t want to see her dead from the very beginning. Good concept wasted on terrible, unrelatable character decisions.
