I don't know how you guys felt about the first one, but it looks like there might be a sequel. That's news to me.

I knew about this. Although the director dies 2 days ago, so his son is going to direct the movie.

I think one or more of the survivors is coming back. Read that somewhere else.

Don't think I want a sequel to this magnificent movie. (Saw the Director's Cut 5 minutes ago. Had only seen the theatrical version before). But I am going to see the sequel, but I don't think i would match the original. The concept has already been used now, and the shock effect is not... well, shocking anymore.:eek2:

I'm just as amped to see this as I was to see the original once I had heard about it. Too bad that once it comes out I'll more than likely have to hunt down a bootleg.

I'm still dubious about this. The one thing about Asian cinema that seems to be true more often than not is that their sequels turn out pretty poor. I don't know how they could even top the first one, and now the director's son is helming the rest... I dunno, I'm still psyched to see this, but if it flops I won't be suprised.

The site is up with a crappy teaser trailer. It's in English, though.
