Great films are often ruined by the ever-looming villain: the sequel. Ok, so “Terminator 2” was an exception, and yeah “Aliens” was bad**s but most follow-up flicks aren’t nearly as inspiring as their predecessors.

If the recent talk of “Beetlejuice 2” and “Space Jam 2” incited accusations of “utter blasphemy,” you’re not alone. Let’s check out the top 5 worst sequel ideas, and here’s to hoping they don’t become realities.
