On the left, the classic poster for John Carpenter’s genre-making slasher film Halloween. On the right, the poster for Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. It’s kind of clever and inspired, but also utterly disturbing and terrifying—a rare combination that I almost have to admire, to be honest.
Here’s the Boo! trailer, which manages to combine twerking, a joke about Madea’s boobs, Rick James, and zombies into one tidy package. The movie comes out in October, obviously.
