Shane Dawson revealed recently that a sequel is in the works. The plot is unknown at the time, but it is expected to release in October 2012. Till this day, there is still no progress on the sequel and no news on whether it would be made.


The pizza boy (the first one that was killed) was never seen again after his death, despite the fact that because the whole murder spree was a prank, after all, he should've been shown alive again unless he actually 'got' killed in real life.

Britt is shown in a killer costume, despite that the fact because she was always with Amy and the last killer to chase anyone was Danny, Britt would've never had a chance to play the killer at all.
