Plot: This prequel explores how John Rollins brought the malevolent supernatural force down upon himself and his family in an attempt to save their farm.
Director: Gary Jones
Writer: Todd Farmer
We mentioned in our RISE 2 article that Ghost House Pictures was also working on THE MESSENGERS 2. This new MESSENGERS film is said to be a prequel exploring how John Rollins brought the malevolent supernatural force down upon himself and his family in an attempt to save their farm. Despite how much disappointing the first film was (check our review), this prequel is penned by the original’s Todd Farmer. The original film marked the US directorial debut of The Pang Bros (THE EYE). It was a shame considering that the film went through re-shoots (like the upcoming EYE remake) without the Pang Bros. The film turned out to be one giant waste of time, so we don't have any high hopes for this prequel. We're unsure if the movie will hit theatres, but considering how awful the first film was it'll most likely go straight to DVD.
