New 'Scary Movie 5' Trailer Finally Brings the 'Mama' and 'Evil Dead' SpoofsEric Walkuski |
Sure looks like someone did some reshoots. The last ‘Scary Movie 5’ trailer we saw was a predictable montage of limp ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘Black Swan’ gags, but this new one has sprinkled in a good amount of ‘Mama’ moments, indicating that the production clearly felt obligated to be a little more current and spoof a movie that’s actually relevant right now.
The result, however, is still akin to being smashed in the groin several times (which this movie would find hilarious, of course). Feel the pain after the break.
There isn’t much to say about ‘Scary Movie 5’ that won’t be readily obvious. The forces behind this franchise are still simply copying scenes from horror movies and adding bodily harm and/or flatulence. Or they feel content making innocuous references to pop culture; a random Honey Boo-Boo appearance, for example, is apparently comedy gold. It’s entirely possible that ‘Scary Movie 5’ has clever takes on movies like ‘Sinister’ and ‘Insidious,’ but if so, they haven’t included any hints of them in this trailer.
‘Scary Movie 5’ stars Ashley Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Katt Williams, Heather Locklear, Audrina Patridge, Simon Rex and Snoop Dog (or Snoop Lion, if you prefer). The cast alone will tell you if this is something you want to experience or not.
Let us know if we’re being too hard on the trailer for ‘Scary Movie 5’ after you check it out for yourself in addition to the new poster. The “comedy” comes out on April 12.
