Hey, remember 2000’s “The Cell”? The movie where Jennifer Lopez plays a psychiatrist who goes into people’s heads to help them? She was so good, the FBI used her to go into the head of a comatose serial killer in order to locate his latest victim before she dies. Well they’ve made a sequel called “The Cell 2”. The original was directed by Tarsem Singh and written by Mark Protosevich (“I am Legend”). The sequel is directed by TV director Tim Iacofano and is going straight to DVD. Trailer and DVD covers for “The Cell 2” below.
The plot of the sequel:
The Cusp is a serial killer who kills his victims and then brings them back to life; over and over again; until they beg to die! Maya is a psychic investigator who gained her powers after a 1 year coma after she was the Cusp’s first victim! Now the Cusp Killer is back and Maya has little time to do what she has never done before, go into the mind of a killer unprotected, and save his latest victim.
“Cusp Killer”? I wonder if he ever gets mistaken for The Cup Killer. He hated cups so much, he killed anyone who is holding a cup in his presence. Now that’s hate, man!
Tessie Santiago steps in for Jennifer Lopez as the female lead. She’s joined by Chris Bruno, Frank Whaley, Bart Johnson, Elizabeth Barondes, Larry Filion, Charles Halford, Ben Naccarato, and Amee Walden. Tim Iacofano (24) directs.
“The Cell 2” invades DVD and Video-on-Demand June 23.
