But what if the sequel happens to be that based on a genuinely frightening critically and commercially-acclaimed horror film? is an ongoing serialization by BOOM! Studios by way of individual single-issue comic books of the events immediately after those in the motion picture of the same title, connecting it with the latter film's sequel, . It focuses on Selena, one of the three survivors of the first film, as she embarks on the epic journey of her return to Great Britain.
