A Haunted House 2 Movie Review
I just turned off A Haunted House 2. It's the second movie I've turned off partway through in under a week, but the sins of A Haunted House 2 are far greater. A Haunted House 2 is one of the most painfully unfunny movies you will ever watch. Amazingly, somehow, the marketing team managed to find two positive quotes for the Blu-ray cover.
A Haunted House 2 is a spoof of The Conjuring, which by star/writer Marlon Wayans' definition means that he has remade the horror-thriller without any intent or means to entertain his audience. Though Wayans struck gold 15 years earlier with Scary Movie, the rest of his career has proven he's a flash in the pan: between White Chicks and this, he has made some serious pieces of shit.
Here are just a few examples of how Wayans, who co-wrote the movie with Rick Alvarez, attempts to make the audience laugh:
- He searches his closet after suspecting someone is inside; his wife hops out, wearing a monster mask, and he proceeds to punch her in the face.
- He has sex with a possessed doll. Multiple times.
- He screams and acts stupid, as exaggerated black men tend to do in Marlon Wayans movies.
A Haunted House 2 is dreadfully awful, a crime against humanity and moviegoers. Avoid this stinker at all costs, and someone please keep Marlon Wayans away from paper, a computer, a camera and anything else that would result in him writing, making or starring in more movies.
