It’s something of a crime that Scary Movie 5 is being sold using Danny Elfman’s great theme from Beetlejuice, but since the whole movie looks like something of a crime, I guess it’s just par for the course.

The movie continues the series’ goal of parodying big horror movies, and this trailer incorporates a bunch of gags that riff on Evil Dead and Mama, among other movies. It works about as well as the first trailer did, which is to say that your mileage with this one will probably vary based on

The first trailer for Scary Movie 5 is out, and watching it might be like experiencing deja vu. Much like another upcoming horror spoof, A Haunted House, the main drive of the film is based on the Paranormal Activity series, and features a young couple (here played by Ashley Tisdale and Simon Rex) trying to figure out what evil, possibly influenced by Black Swan, is haunting their house. Marlon Wayans stars in the competing film, which is confusing because it was he and his brothers who started the Scary Movie franchise in the first place.

It’s all very fluid and weird and, based on this trailer, not particularly funny. Check it out below. Read More »
