THE PLOT THUS FAR
Four teens are tricked by their professor into visiting a haunted house for a school project.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris), now in college after suffering the wacky massacre in her birth town, is invited by a laid professor (Tim Curry) to take a weekend in a house alongside with her friends the always show stealer Brenda (Regina Hall), Ray with his always confusing sexuality, Shorty the drug adict and Brenda’s brother, the bombshell Theo (Kathleen Robertson) and the dumby girl Alex (Tori Spelling). When they are welcome to the Hell House, more jokes and crazyness happens when they discovers that there’s a ghost watching them.
The comedy might have been a little too over-the-top and repitive at times, as it seemed like this one tried really hard to please the audience when the first one just went with the flow, but that is really how a lot of comedies are like, even more so now than then, so I do not see how this one is any different. Anna Faris pulls off Cindy Campbell’s character wonderfully, again, and nobody could have done it better than her. All the other familiar characters, as well as the new ones, are excellently portrayed and likable, in a sense, and the movie has a high replay value, for me at least.
The Blu-Ray comes with the original featurettes and deleted scenes from the DVD. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp for a horror comedy that was shot fast roughly a decade ago. However, the DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track remains pretty flat and doesn’t have a lot of room to move about the soundstage. Still, if you’re a fan of the series…you’ll want to check it out. Everyone else will want to skip it.
