Movie series you didn't know kept releasing low-budget sequels
In today's franchise-hungry Hollywood, every successful movie has a sequel waiting to happen. But not all franchises are created equal: sometimes, studios just can't leave well enough alone, and they'll flog a film series for every last dollar it can produce in the lower-budget direct-to-video (or DTV) market. Sometimes actors from the first films stick around for the entire ride, though they're rarely the original leads—you're not seeing, say, Kevin Bacon popping up in Tremors 4. What you might see, on the other hand, are some surprising gems—among many, many more unbearable cash grabs. Let's run down some of the stranger series that have been out there under your nose, churning out sequels that you've never seen.
