If you’re looking for another crude, raunchy and hilarious parody on the recent horror movies that have come out in cinemas, then the continuation of the Haunted House film from last year will have your stomach hurting.
If you’re into crude and dirty humor, you’ll enjoy Marlon Wayans’ writing and acting for this movie. You might remember the ‘Scary Movie’ movie series and ‘White Chicks’ and the boundaries they crossed in regards to the content showed. But for some, they’ll want to see the absurdity involving a demonic doll and an abundance of jokes about movies such as ‘The Conjuring’ and ‘Sinister.’
The movie begins where the last ended: the possessed girlfriend, Kisha (Essence Atkins), of Wayans’ character, Malcolm, Malcolm himself and his cousin Ray Ray (Affion Crockett, ‘Dance Flick’) attempt to save Kisha from the demon which has taken over her. It doesn’t go as planned.
Flash forward to Malcolm’s new life. He has a new girlfriend, Megan (Jamie Pressly), new dog (see the first movie) and a new home. It’s all positive for Malcolm. He’s moved on. But some have not.
Demonic possession and evil spirits haunt him, the family and the house that they've moved into. Malcolm is getting punished for a bad choice he made in his past and the paranormal will do whatever it can to remind him of his poor decision.
It appears that Marlon Wayans will do anything to ensure laughter. There is no modesty or shame, and in this case, it works. As much as Malcolm tries to be the "man of the house," he sure does have the highest pitch scream for guy, but that's what makes it comical, of course. And he does involve himself in some ludicrous acts which seem to make Megan question his sanity, as we all would.
The movie is rated R for a good reason. Be prepared for an abundance of bodily function and sexual humor that some may find over-the-top. And as mentioned earlier, it may leave you gasping for air after the hilarity takes a break, or have you leave the theater, as two couples did in the middle. But nevertheless, this movie captures that Wayans humor that has had people buying tickets for over a decade, despite the gross factor.
