Tyler Perry’s upcoming comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween kicked off its advertising campaign with a teaser poster that was a direct parody of the classic poster for John Carpenter’s Halloween., and a new parody poster was released earlier today, this time paying homage to the original 1973 poster for The Exorcist.
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.
