Five years after the release of comedy-horror spoof Meet the Blacks, a sequel is on the way with The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2, and we’ve got the trailer today.
The next installment of the Meet The Blacks saga will open in theaters on June 11. Lionsgate will release the film On Demand and on Blu-ray/DVD later this summer.
The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2 stars comedy superstars Mike Epps (Next Friday, Netflix’s The Upshaws) and Katt Williams (Friday After Next, Scary Movie V) with Bresha Webb(Ride Along 2), Lil Duval (Scary Movie V), Zulay Henao (“The Oath”), Tyrin Turner (Menace II Society), Alex Henderson (Creed), Michael Blackson (Dutch), Andrew Bachelor (Holidate), Gary Owen (Ride Along), and Snoop Dogg returning from the first film. Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn) and Rick Ross join the supporting cast for the sequel.
In this summer’s sequel, “Carl Black is about to face off with the neighbor from hell. Carl has only ever wanted the best for his family, but after surviving the events that led to his (not-so-)bestselling book, he’s moving everyone to his childhood home, where’s he’ll contend not only with his wife Lorene and kids Allie and Carl Jr. but everyone who drives him crazy: Cronut, Freezee, Rico, and an entire neighborhood of characters who seem to attract strange activity after dark. And nothing could be more freaky than his new neighbor Dr. Mamuwalde, who may or may not be a vampire. It will be up to Carl to figure out what his neighbor is up to in the middle of the night before it’s too late for him and his family.”
“We first made the film because it is rare that we get comedies that speak to the urban culture,” said co-writer/director Deon Taylor. “After the success of the first film culturally and theatrically, it was only right to service the fans that were demanding a sequel. This is why we make art and why it’s important for more black filmmakers to emerge.”
