The first trailer for Scary Movie 5 was released, giving viewers a hint at what films to expect the franchise will poke fun at this time around.
The trailer opens with a spoof of popular Paranormal Activity franchise, using its found-footage filming technique and showing Jody, played by Ashley Tisdale, chatting with friend Kendra, played by Erica Ash, on Skype when a figure appears outside by Jody’s pool.
According to Hollywood Life, the film also pokes fun at Inception and Lindsay Lohan’s personal drama. The actress is also featured in the film and is paired with party boy Charlie Sheen, who also makes a few jokes at his own expense.
Although the film follows the franchise’s typical pattern, one element is missing: actress Anna Faris. However, actor Simon Rex does return for Scary Movie 5.
Collider reported that the franchise also mocks Aronofsky’s Academy Award nominee, Black Swan.
Scary Movie 5 also features Heather Locklear, Molly Shannon, Kate Walsh and Katt Williams. The film arrives in theaters April 19.
