Scary Movie 5 (2013)
Home with their newly-formed family, happy parents Dan and Jody are haunted by sinister, paranormal activities. Determined to expel the insidious force, they install security cameras and discover their family is being stalked by an evil dead demon.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
While it doesn't offer any answers, it both thrills and makes you think.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
I don't know why people hate this movie. It may be the worst movie, but I think it's really good. The comedy, the spoofs, the scares and all of that sh*t. If they make another scary movie, I'll just get to watching it. I did miss Anna Faris and Regina Hall in the other ones, though. Whoever directed this movie, keep it up!
I loved the previous scary movies, especially 1 and 3. This one however, not only did it not take all the elements of the humor from the previous ones- the clever spoofs, the witty jokes, the plot twists- but it ruined them.They did not put any thought at all at how they will direct the story, they just threw together movies like the paranormal activity, black swan, the evil dead, but they did not make any parody of them in any clever way, they just made references to them.The movie is plot-less in a bad way, boring and practically no moments of laugh. Not recommended.
The principal Achilles heel of Scary Movie 5 is the absence of Anna Faris, that girl and her smile enliven the comedies, Faris is a fantastic actress. Without Faris the saga Scary Movie wouldn't be the same. In this fifth part, the actuation of Ashley Tisdale is detestable, so horrible that this actress deserves a Razzie prize. I agree all the films of the saga are absurd, but this last chapter hasn't good jokes. Just as well I didn't watched this turkey in the cinema. For me is the most disappointing movie of the saga. The best: The cameo of Lindsay Lohan and the movie end. The worst: Nearly all.
David Zucker was the man responsible for some of the funniest spoofs of the 1980s - I'm thinking AIRPLANE! and the NAKED GUN trilogy - so it's sad to see how far his gravitas has fallen in working on the fifth instalment of a film series that was rubbish from the outset. The only good thing about SCARY MOVIE 5 is that Anna Faris isn't in it, which has to be a positive. Other than that, it's business as usual, with no story, tons of cameo appearances, and loads of lame, gross-out jokes.This film's opening scene, featuring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, is actually the funniest of the entire movie. It's a short spoof of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, and it plays out ridiculously over the top, as you'd expect, but it did make me laugh out loud. Unfortunately the film then shifts to a pair of uninteresting characters and virtually retells the plot of the horror flick MAMA while throwing in lots of other random spoofs along the way.This series has always had a scattershot approach so we get riffs on the likes of DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, EVIL DEAD, and even BLACK SWAN for random measure. The humour is always stupid and only a small handful of the jokes actually work. I guess with Marlon Wayans being out of the franchise the film-makers had to bring in a black 'street' presence, so we get Snoop Dogg in some random, extraneous sub-plot. Terry Crews, Jerry O'Connell, Mike Tyson, and Heather Locklear have cameos. Overall, I'd recommend changing the channel.
