21 Sequels That Never Saw The Originals

When it comes to storytelling, Hollywood is pretty good at it. When it comes to linking one story to what is supposed to be a continuation of it, Hollywood is not so great at that.

If you need evidence of that, look no further than this collection of sequels that were obviously made by people who either missed the point of the original, didn't give a shit, or just flat out never saw the first film. As always, thanks to AuntieMeme for the voodoo she works putting these together.
