** How do we know that the Ancient Ones will rise if not sated, and if they rise, they will "destroy" the world? Presumably, because it happened before. Since we are here, then, it's not like ''total'' world destruction. After all, [[TheTerminator SkyNet]] is never able to ''totally'' destroy all organic life. Not even humans. But they do manage to pretty much "destroy" the world.

*** Yeah, because everyone is going to believe a 9 year old when she says her classmates were killed by a ghost. If this universe represents all horror movies then there’s your answer, in most horror movies, including sequels, people is amazingly skeptical and don’t believe monsters exist, nor they believe the survivors' story. We have several tropes about it; ArbitrarySkepticism, ScullySyndrome, WeirdnessCensor, HollywoodAtheist, etc. And no, I doubt they kill the survivor girl, to some extend is possible that the “urban legend” that born after the survivor tells her story feed the myth and the coming of new victims. Something similar of how NightmareOnElmStreet movies work.

** You’re missing the point entirely. The movie clearly establishes that the “old fashion way” was human sacrifice, a practice that was common to basically all human cultures in the world.

** I was under the impression that she meant, the formula that works ''today'' as having, for example, people in dark robes sacrificing virgins in monoliths is no longer viable.

Added DiffLines:

**** That depends on one's definition of "being humane". Cruelty to each other has been part of our psyche since the very start of our history, so I think such actions are perfectly humane. But level of intelligence and sophistication put in them is truly admirable and is a sign of Humankind's greatness.

** She was wounded pretty bad and she's likely to die from her injuries before anything else can happen.

** Alternately think of the studio trying to decide what they're going to put into the movie based on what's most popular at the moment.
