I received A Haunted House 2 Blu-ray Combo Pack for review on my movie blog. The supernatural comedy is a sequel to the first Haunted House film. If you like the first movie, you’ll probably enjoy this sequel too. On the other hand, if you didn’t like the humor or plot of the first film, you won’t like this one either. The stories are different, but the overall idea is the same. Just like the first film, Malcolm (played by Marlon Wayans) moves into a house and this is one haunted too. A Haunted House 2 (Universal Studios Home Entertainment) is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Continue reading to learn six things about A Haunted House 2.
Six Things About A Haunted House 2 Blu-ray
You don’t need to see the first film
In the first movie, Malcolm and his girlfriend, Kisha, moves into a house. Strange things start to happen. As a result, Malcolm installs a bunch of cameras to monitor the house. When he reviews the video, Malcolm sees that their house really is haunted by a demon or ghost. The demon eventually possesses Kisha. Malcolm and a priest performs an exorcism. They believe the exorcism worked, but then the movie ends with a demon-possessed Kisha dragging Malcolm away.
It’s a new beginning
The sequel starts off with a car crash involving Malcolm and his demon-possessed girlfriend, Kisha. Malcolm flees the scene and leaves Kisha for dead. The story then flashes forward a year. Malcolm moves into a new house with his new girlfriend, Megan (played by Jaime Pressly) and her two children. After his experience with his last home, Malcolm is a little paranoid that his new home might be haunted too. As it turns out, it is haunted by a creepy doll, an imaginary friend of the youngest child, and the oldest child’s mysterious box. The rest of the story is basically about Malcolm dealing with the demon(s) in his new home.
It’s stupid funny
You’ve seen movies that make fun of other films, right? Many of the gags are stupid, yet you can’t help but laugh at some of the gags anyway. That’s how the humor is like in A Haunted House 2. It’s stupid funny and is one of those movies that is funnier if you watch it with a lot of people.
- A Haunted House 2 includes bonus features
In addition to the movie in Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD (with Ultraviolet) formats, the Blu-ray Combo Pack also includes a couple of extra features:
- Deleted and Extended Scenes
- Feature Commentary with Actor/Co-Writer/Producer Marlon Wayans, Director Michael Tiddes and Co-Writer/Producer Rick Alvarez
Marlon Wayans is back
Marlon Wayans reprises his role as Malcolm, who was also the main character in the first Haunted House movie. Wayans was OK, but my favorite character was played by Gabriel Iglesias. He played the part of Marlon’s funny neighbor, Miguel. Other actors included Jaime Pressly (Megan), Essence Atkins (Kisha), Missi Pyle (Noreen), Ashley Rickards (Becky), Affion Crockett (Ray Ray), Steele Stebbins (Wyatt), Rick Overton (Professor Wilde), Hayes MacArthur (Ned), Dave Sheridan (Agouhl), Cedric the Entertainer (Father Williams), Kurt Carley (Dr. Rousch), Tom Virtue (Father Callahan), and Kym Whitley (Church Lady). A Haunted House 2 was directed by Matthias Hoene.
Don’t watch this movie with young kids
A Haunted House 2 is rated R for crude and sexual content, nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violent images. I do not recommend watching this film with young children. There’s only a few nude scenes, but there are a lot of sexual content — including sex between a creepy doll and the main character.
