Right, it’s come to this. We’ve done the then-topical Top 10 Moustaches in film, the semi-libellous Top 10 reasons Ellen Page is a secret lesbian and the unnecessarily Photoshop-heavy Top 10 films that should be reshot with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role, and now we’re almost completely out of ideas.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a horror movie with a domestic gross amounting to a small fortune must be in line for a string of sequels of ever-diminishing quality.
