The first official teaser poster for Tyler Perry’s upcoming comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween was released today, and it is a direct parody of the classic poster for John Carpenter’s 1978 horror masterpiece Halloween.
UPDATE: The film’s official Facebook page has even called out the Boogeyman himself, sharing the poster this afternoon with the text: “Don’t fear Michael Myers, fear Madea.”
Tyler Perry wrote, produced, directed, and stars in the film, which originated from Perry and Chris Rock including a fictitious Madea Halloween movie in Rock’s 2014 film Top Five. Lionsgate then approached Perry and suggested that they actually make the movie a reality.
Boo! A Madea Halloween, the ninth film in Perry’s Madea franchise, will see Madea spending Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls, and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.
The film also stars Bella Thorne (MTV’s Scream: The TV Series), Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Andre Hall, Yousef Erakat, Lexy Panterra, Diamond White, Liza Koshy, Brock O’Hurn, Jimmy Tatro, JC Caylen, Kian Lawley and Mike Tornabene.
Lionsgate will release Boo! A Madea Halloween on October 21.
