‘Scary Movie 5′ Review

13 April 2013 11:46 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Simon Rex, Ashley Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Jerry O’Connell, Erica Ash, Katt Williams, Gracie Whitton, Lidia Porto, Katrina Bowden, Snoop Dogg, Tyler Posey, Molly Shannon, Terry Crews | Written by Pat Proft, David Zucker | Directed by Malcolm D. Lee

The Scary Movie series returns to cinemas after a seven-year hiatus with Scary Movie 5,  the fifth installment of the outrageous comedy horror franchise,  which sees happily-married couple Dan (Simon Rex) and Jody (Ashley Tinsdale) notice strange goings on when they return home with their newborn baby. They soon deduce that they’re being terrorized by an evil force and decide to use the latest home surveillance equipment to try and snare it for once and for all, with a little help from a panel of experts.

It doesn’t bode well for entry new franchise entry when none of the original cast members, not even the bit-parters, return for the sequel. »

Film Review: ‘Scary Movie 5′

12 April 2013 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Talk about fast turnaround: Movies as recent as “Mama” and the “Evil Dead” remake find themselves sent up in “Scary Movie 5,” the numbingly inane if cheerfully up-to-the-minute new entry in a franchise presumed to have breathed its last seven years ago. One scene inspired by “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” features a roomful of chimps hurling their feces at the wall, providing a perhaps unintended metaphor for the writing process behind this unwelcome resurrection. Still, insofar as past installments have proved frighteningly lucrative (more than $800 million worldwide), there may yet be some commercial life in this pop-culture barf bag.

A recent wave of horror hits – including but not limited to the “Paranormal Activity” franchise, “Sinister” and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” – is the slender justification offered up for the existence of this sequel scripted by David Zucker (who helmed the previous two “Scary” movies) and Pat Proft. »
