Open Water...2?

So I'm probably the only person of the people who read this to have seen the movie "Open Water," and I thought it was really amazing. It was gritty, intense, and deeply disturbing. When I left the theater, I actually felt like I knew what it was like to die slowly of cold, fear, and most of all, exhaustion. It was a very serious movie.

It never occurred to me that this would happen: "Open Water 2: Adrift." They've taken a second disturbing, true, death-by-exhaustion-at-sea story...and made another movie. Why did they have to call it that? Do they want to trivialize everything about the new and old movie? Are there people who will like it more because of this title? I mean...come on.
