Summary:

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 finds Malcolm once again in a haunted house with his new white girlfriend and her two children. A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is extremely unoriginal, unfunny, and utterly offensive, with very strong Anti-Christian content.

Review:

HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is an abhorrent, unfunny comedy horror movie spoofing many of the previous year’s horror movies.

Malcolm Johnson is a young African American man running from his demon possessed girlfriend Kisha who was in the first movie. When Malcolm, his cousin and Kisha are in a car accident, it looks as if Kisha died, giving him the opportunity to be done with her. Malcolm and his cousin leave the scene of the accident.

One year later, Malcolm is beginning to live with his new girlfriend Megan and her two children; teenage rebel Becky and her younger brother. As they settle, Malcolm begins to notice strange things around the house. He discovers that a demon haunts the house along with a creepy doll. To make things worse, his ex-girlfriend Kisha isn’t dead and continues to haunt him.

As he videotapes his findings and tries to investigate the paranormal occurrences with the help of a meth-cooking professor, Malcolm becomes even more erratic in his behavior (as if that was possible). Also, the foul-mouthed “Father Doug” shows up at the end to help perform an exorcism in a very offensive scene.

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is extremely crude and pointless. Marlon Wayans who wrote and starred in the movie shows his own incompetence as a comedian by constantly resorting to unoriginal jokes, stereotypes, and sexual gags. Nearly every plot point is directly taken from other movies, especially the climactic scene that, in an unfunny way, spoofs last year’s THE CONJURING.

This empty, lewd, offensive movie will find most audiences, media wise or not, rethinking their decision to see it. The constant foul language and extremely crude humor is accompanied by strong drug references and very strong Anti-Christian elements mocking the church, clergy, and the Holy Trinity, and making light of the supernatural and the occult.
