The trailer for Scary Movie 5 is the final nail in that franchise's coffin

Dec. 26, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Because you have all been clamoring for it, the trailer for SCARY MOVIE 5 is finally here!

Despite seven years since the fourth film, someone still thought it was a good idea to make another spoof of the horror genre that nobody asked for. The first couple of SCARY MOVIE titles were fun, but once it got to part 3, they just became tedious. Then the onslaught of spoofs like EPIC MOVIE completely trashed the subgenre.

Even SCARY MOVIE 5 suffers from having a trailer released after Marlon Wayans' A HAUNTED HOUSE has gotten two trailers online. Where A HAUNTED HOUSE focuses more on an urban humor, SCARY MOVIE 5 feels incredibly white-washed. All of the jokes appear to be related to INCEPTION, BLACK SWAN and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, movies that are not at the top of the pop culture list as they were a couple years ago. Even having Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan cameos seems to be too late to the game.

But, because you really want to see this movie, here is the trailer.

SCARY MOVIE 5 opens April 19. 2013.

In general I can stomach the Scary Movie franchise, the parody format re-uses a number of predictable jokes. But this one has Lindsay Lohan, and there is NO way i would spend a dime on any film she is in.

NOT...INTERESTED.......AT......ALL!!!!!

Seriously? Scary Movie 5? Blah! The trailer was as bad as I expected it to be. Part 1 was great. Then the rest of them just freaking sucked!!!! Part 2 was the worst in my opinion though. But, I gotta admit, I like these movies a helluva lot more than SCREAM 2,3, & 4!!!

Waynes are doing it much better

That looked horrible and I am a loser who got even a single chuckle out of the 4th one... I am excited for the Wayne's brothers take but this looks horrible. Why does this exist?

It looks like a knock off of Marlon Wayans new flick A Haunted House, except not funny. It reminds me of whenever a big movie comes out, the Asylum production always tries to make a similar movie.

Wow.... this movie is about 2 years too late, and even back then it would have been just as excruciating.

looks like im in the minority here but

im actually looking forward to seeing this one since im a fan of all 4 scary movies and it looks to be the opposite of meet the spartans and disaster movie which i fucking despised but unlike those pieces of crap on a stick i actually have hopes for this cause it's not made or written by those 2 losers feldberg & whoever that other guy is.

The most pathetic part about this trailer is that for Django Unchained, it plays right after "This Is The End" which had everyone in the theater busting up. Then this comes on and the theater was silent the whole way through.
It's really sad when, even after the audience has been warmed up, you *still* can't get a laugh out of them.

Boooring!

Unfunny lead actress and no good joke...looks lame as hell!
The other films at least had Anna Faris and Regina Hall who were always hillarious.
