A few months back we saw the first trailer for A Haunted House, Marlon Wayans’ own attempt to return to the success of the Scary Movie franchise without the benefit of the established name. As expected, it showcased some pretty obvious and painfully low brow humour. However, now that this pitiful trailer for Scary Movie 5 has arrived, I’m actually starting to appreciate the Wayans flick a little more.
Scary Movie 5 is directed by Malcolm D. Lee (Soul Men, Undercover Brother) and is produced and co-written by veteran spoofmeister David Zucker. It seems content to coast by on merely referencing the Paranormal Activity movies while barely even attempting to make any jokes. It also seems to be heavily banking on recognizable stars like Ashley Tisdale, Heather Locklear, and yes, Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan. Hey, at least there’s also an Inception gag thrown in for good measure. Scary Movie 5 hits theatres on April 13th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
