Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that A Haunted House 2 is the sequel to the Marlon Wayans' horror-spoof A Haunted House. It has nonstop sexual content, including tons of crude innuendo and some nudity (female breasts and a male bottom). There are also jokes about racism and bodily functions and even a brief joke about priests and little boys. Language is very strong, with constant use of the "N" word, "f--k," and "s--t." Some horror movie imagery is shown, with blood, fighting, dead bodies, and (fake) dead animals. Drinking and drugs are also an issue, with overt, jokey scenes of smoking pot, drinking, snorting cocaine, shooting heroin, taking pills, and making meth. A young boy is present during some of these scenes. The first movie made an attempt to focus on characters and relationships, but this sequel drops all that in favor of bad jokes and bad attempts at parody. And even though it's all played for humor, there's no escaping the fact that this movie is bursting with inappropriate content.

Sexual Content

The main character has a long, drawn-out sex scene with a doll. Though the scene is not "real," and no nudity is shown (aside from the man's naked bottom), it's fairly graphic and runs the gamut of sexual positions and experiences. Viewers see "naked" pictures of the doll, including fake nipples, and bondage shots. The main character also has a sex scene with his girlfriend; again, there's no nudity shown, but there are very strong sexual references (such as the woman's "squirting" orgasm). Two women are shown topless on two occasions. A man admires his girlfriend's (clothed) bottom while she's bent over. A sex toy is shown. A fake penis is shown in the back of a young woman's throat. Plus almost constant sex talk and sexual innuendo.


Two dogs are killed, obviously fake; one is flattened, and the other is hacked to death with various instruments (fake blood is shown). Some of the "home movies" from Sinister are spoofed, with a demon trying to kill a family. The main character has a long battle with a fighting rooster, with lots of blood shown. Cops are shown beating the main character briefly. A priest stabs another priest. There's a joke about several black men raping a white man in jail. A woman is shown with her head twisted around, and another woman is impaled, with blood shown. A character "throws up" a demon, with red stuff gushing out of his mouth.


Language is nearly constant, with uses of the "N" word, "f--k," "motherf----r," "s--t," "ass," "bitch," "a--hole," "vagina," "balls," "loser," and "goddamn," as well as constant sexual innuendo.

Social Behavior

No one learns anything or tries to convey a positive take-away. The movie includes constant sex talk/jokes, jokes about racism, cultural stereotypes, farting noises, and scenes of pooping and peeing. A young boy is present for some of this. There's a joke about priests and little boys. Two "ghost hunters" terrorize a class full of children.


Febreze is mentioned in a joke about cleaning carpets after a gory episode.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A character is shown drinking whisky in response to watching scary home movies. In one scene, he drinks the entire bottle, smokes some pot, takes a mouthful of pills, and shoots heroin before passing out and waking up in a puddle of vomit. In other scenes, a priest snorts cocaine, and most of the cast smokes pot. A child has a tea party with vodka served, though only a grown-up drinks it on screen. A professor is shown running a meth lab.
