Sequals are usually terrible. They never seem to muster the creativity of the original, and the replacement cast is almost always disappointing. Not so in Wednesday's bizarre sequal to Tuesday night's mockery of a baseball game. This cast featured familiar faces in challenging roles. There were twists and turns that kept you on the edge of your seat, but ultimately the storyline fell back to the same predictable tricks to get to the denouement. I give it three stars.Cast of Characters

The original House of Horrors, was just that, a horror story. The sequel, however, deftly mixed comedy in with the horror to create a much more watchable game.
HoH II picks up about 14 hours after the original. Casualties from the original cast were Jaun Uribe (groin), Pablo Ozuna (wrist), and Tadahito Iguchi (knee). The new left side of the infield, Crede and Widger, provided the much needed comic relief.
OK, I think I've carried this joke long enough... I'm no batgirl. I'll have a normal recap up later tonight.
