    This sounds awful.

  • SuperBakaKing

    Was kind of hoping for an anthology film. if it gets the younger generation into creepy movies, I guess I can’t complain.

  • Chandler Of-Adelaide

    Yeah I would’ve gone anthology or perhaps just reboot the series. This just sounds bleh.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Personally, I love the idea for this. Can’t wait to see Slappy on the big screen.
