The first one sucked, and this one is even worse. When a movie throws this many jokes at you, you are sure to laugh a few times, and I did. But the ratio of jokes that work to the jokes that implode is surprisingly low, and director Keenen Ivory Wayans is too gross with his gross-outs. While the first was a spoof of Scream
, this one is more a jab at haunted house films, with small nods to non-scary movies like Mission Impossible 2
and Charlie’s Angels
. A funny spoof of a Nike commercial and the under-used David Cross as a bitter wheelchair-bound man are the only things worth watching in this dud.
