You, watching this at home, worship me! I command you! Become my willing sprawls and live eternally! Oh, the sweet sublime feeling of complete obediance to your Evil Master! Come serve me, the Prince of Darkness, I command it! Hear me! Obey me! OBEY ME!
That was such an "Eighties" movie, I'm not sure a sequel is gonna translate well in the 21st century ... but I'm still holding out hope!
