I am sorry but this movie looks dreadful, turning horror movies into spoofs has not worked since the Scary Movie movies (which I love). After that we had A Haunted House by Marlon Wayans’ which was terrible by the way. Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween hits the cinema’s this October, and it looks terrible.
Like I was saying in the intro, Scary Movie has got to have been the best horror spoof movie franchise I’ve seen. Because of the success of the Scary Movie franchise, there have been many movie spoofs since then which have failed horribly.
Scary Movie 2000:
Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans’ this movie was the first, and best of the series. The movie boldly fires barbs at the classic scenes from Scream, The Sixth Sense, The Matrix, I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Blair Witch Project, then goes on to mock a whole myriad of teen movie clichés, no matter the genre.
These movies started going downhill after the 3rd movie, I think people enjoyed the uniqueness of the movies and the harder they tried… well the worse they became.
Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween:
Why they thought this was a good idea, I don’t know! The trailer looks terrible. I base comedies on the laugh factor the trailer gives me, and I didn’t laugh once during watching this. Let’s take a look at the trailer again before we start getting all judgy.
It looks to me like a splice between Scary Movie and Big Momma’s House with a little twist of The Nutty professor thrown in there too. Don’t get me wrong the movie looks like it had great potential to be amazing, had it looked like they were not trying too hard. I could be wrong and this movie could be great, but from what I’ve seen… I’m not banking on it. What about you guys, what do you think?
