Historically however, horror movie sequels have rarely been as well received as their predecessors, so I went in with an open mind and low expectations.

We never really think about it long enough to realize how much it would actually suck to live back in the 1800′s, especially in the old west. “A Million Ways to Die in the West” is Seth MacFarlane’s ode to just that.
