Movie pick: A Haunted House 2

If half-baked jokes, cheap laughs and crass humour is your thing, get ready to be disappointed because this film doesn't even reach that level.

The sequel to last year's A Haunted House, Marlon Wayans returns as Malcolm - now starting life anew in a new home with girlfriend Megan (Jaime Pressly) and her two children.

Picking at recent horror flicks like Sinister and The Conjuring, the plot unravels and reveals Malcolm in his full, witless glory, trying to take on a mysterious presence in the home.

Beware, there are plenty of obscene doll-humping scenes so pointless and unnecessarily elaborate that even finding the will to fake-laugh takes major effort.
