Just when you thought it was safe to misbehave, a powerful force is returning to have its reckoning. It's fierce, a force of aged integrity and sass, and the star of a multi-million dollar franchise. Be prepared to have the most frightening Halloween ever, as Madea is about to face off against every and any menace you could imagine. Boo! A Madea Halloween has dropped its first trailer, and you can watch it below... if you dare.
Lionsgate released this new look at Tyler Perry's latest flick, which has set its sights on bringing the Madea franchise's special touch to the Halloween film scene. And it looks like it's taken the Scary Movie approach, as everything from menacing clowns to zombies, and even Jigsaw himself, have come out to take a swing at Madea. If that wasn't bad enough, she's also got her hands full with a group of teenagers who are planning to raise some hell at a college party. How she keeps up with it all, we'll never know.
While Boo! A Madea Halloween looks like the same old Madea at work, its novel premise may be what makes it stand out from the rest. Should this horror / comedy spoof hybrid make a dent at the box office, there's a chance that Madea could start making more genre parody flicks. Just think: Madea could take on Star Wars, Lord Of The Rings, and even Taken, all with her trademark brand of humor and anger. The sky's the limit if movie can take on Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and A Monster Calls in its opening weekend.
It'll be interesting to see how the laughs and scares are balance in Boo! A Madea Halloween, but if you're a fan of Tyler Perry's brand of humor, and the character he's used to deliver it time and time again, you can begin to see how the film will probably fall in the Comedy section of Netflix. The scares are surface level details to set up the laughs, so if you've got friends that are uber-sensitive to horror films, you can assure them that they won't be sleeping with the lights on after seeing this film.
Boo! A Madea Halloween scares up some laughs on October 21st.
