10 Movie Sequels You Didn’t Know Existed

Sometimes you love a movie so much that you can’t wait for the next chapter. Other times, you hope they go out on a high note and the words “part two” are never uttered. Then there are those you couldn’t care less about one way or the other.

Any of these could apply to the following list of 10 sequels you have probably never even heard of. Warning: there are some spoilers, but you shouldn’t care.

 

10. Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights

The Original: Patrick Swayze sets hearts aflutter as the macho dancer with a heart of gold and a rebellious streak a mile wide. A walking contradiction then, but a charming one…

The Sequel: Romola Garai and Diego Luna play similar characters in this Cuban-set fantasy, originally written as a standalone film but slapped with the Dirty Dancing label thanks to a cameo from Swayze.

 

9. Blues Brothers 2000

The Original: Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi go on the run in this uneven but brilliantly soundtracked caper. Great fun, but surely a one-off…

The Sequel: You’d at least expect them to come up with a new plot, but Blues Brothers 2000 sees Elwood escape from prison again, and head off cross-country… again. What for?

    What about ‘Enemy of the State’ being the sequel to Francis Coppola’s ‘The Conversation’?

  • Craig Edwards

    This was a ridiculous list. Every one of these is a well known movie. And the writer missed the most truly unknown movie sequel ever – the sequel to A Christmas Story. Or the second most unknown – the sequel to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation that has no Griswolds, just Cousin Eddie annoying Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad.

    How can this list not have The Devils Rejects, otherwise very nice.

    Wow that’s funny about US Marshals, I remember watching it and thinking that it was a coincidence that Tommy Jones was playing a marshal again but chalked it up to type-casting. I never for a second thought that it might be a sequel.

    there were actually 9 godzilla movies before smog monster and a crapload after,so its not actually a sequel.
