'A Haunted House 2' is back and spoofing some more popular horror movies, like 'The Conjuring' and the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise because those are always a thing, and there's some vague exorcism references that could be from just about anything. The film has just scared up a red band trailer, itself a spoof of the Facebook "look back" videos that were popular, you know, a few months ago -- so yeah, this is pretty much in keeping with how timely the humor and references are in these films.
The red band trailer, which debuted on Yahoo! Movies, is filled with profanity (some of it sexist), a dead dog, and ... doll nudity. Seems that this time around, Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) is hooking up with that Annabelle doll from 'The Conjuring.' This is comedy!
The sequel follows Malcolm and his new girlfriend (Jaime Pressly) and her two kids as they try to start fresh and move into a new home after the events of the first film. But even after they move into their dream home, Malcolm is still being haunted by all kinds of paranormal activity.
'A Haunted House 2' also stars comedian Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, and Essence Atkins, and hits theaters on April 18.
