Scary Movie 5 Trailer Will Scare You (If You Expect Comedies to be Funny)

Here’s the trailer for David Zucker’s “Scary Movie 5”, which parodies the “Paranormal Activity” series. This isn’t to be mistaken with Marlon Waynes’ “A Haunted House”, which, yes, also parodies the “Paranormal Activity” movies. Unfortunately, unlike Waynes’ film, which seems to be going balls out to make you laugh, “Scary Movie 5”, er, doesn’t seem to be making that much of an effort. Though I have to admit, the cameo from Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen is amusing, especially the scene of Lohan seeing herself on TV. That made me chuckle. The rest? Not so much.

Here’s the plot, though honestly, it doesn’t seem to jive that much with the trailer:

Three dancers — one veteran performer and two upstarts who are also best friends — vie for the lead in a new production from a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director.

Starring Ashley Tisdale, Kate Walsh, Molly Shannon, Heather Locklear, Craig Bierko, Simon Rex, J.P. Manoux, Marisa Saks, Erica Ash, Charlie Sheen, and Lindsay Lohan.
