First Trailer for Scary Movie 5 Debuts and Isn't Kind to Charlie Sheen's Crotch
12.24.12 by Ryan
Cover your privates, the Scary Movie series is back.
Horror movie parodies seem to be on a bit of an uptick lately, with Marlon Wayans' A Haunted House and 30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo both respectively arriving in theaters and DVD next January. With any luck, the two parodies won't have used up all the fart jokes, pratfalls and crotch shots that will surely arrive with April's Scary Movie 5.
But while the first trailer shows that Paranormal Activity is clearly one of the movie's being parodied, 2010's Black Swan is also chief among Scary Movie 5's targets with Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical) playing a young mother and aspiring ballet dancer who is experiencing some unexplained behavior in her home, which is partially explained when she watches footage of the previous owners (Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan).
Hitting Trailers where it counts
While it's not surprising to see Lohan in the movie, the actress of course did her best to not appear in it. She reportedly showed up a day late to the Scary Movie 5 set, and rumor has it that she refused to kiss Sheen during their scene. Apparently, everything is fine between the two party-lifestyle actors, since Sheen reportedly gave the actress $100,000 dollars to help her pay her back taxes. Weeks later, Lohan got around to sending Sheen flowers, so all's well that end's well with Scary Movie 5's cameo partners!
Written by David Zucker and Pat Proft (Scary Movie 3 and 4, The Naked Gun movies), and was directed by Malcolm D. Lee (Soul Men). Heather Locklear co-stars as Tisdale's mother.
