But when the chaos expands into Jody’s job as a ballet dancer and Dan’s career as an Ape researcher, they realize they’re family is being stalked by a nefarious demon. Together, with the advice of certified experts and the aid of numerous cameras, they must figure out how to get rid of it before it’s too late.”

Movie Critics
…The latest and worst entry in the Scary Movie franchise… [D]
Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly
…There is a plot thread — about a couple (Ms. Tisdale and Simon Rex) who adopt children haunted by a nefarious mother-spirit — but forget it. …
Andy Webster, The New York Times
…Lacking a single honest laugh, this is shoddy by comparison with the other Scary Movie sequels… which throws it in a pit with Transylmania, Breaking Wind and Stan Helsing. [1/5]
Kim Newman, Empire
…moves between frenzied and stoned… eye-rolling antics abound in the latest horror-film parody, where even Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan are barely believable as themselves. …
Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times
…so tediously offensive and pointless that the high-water mark of humor comes in the form of Snoop and Mac Miller ambling through the woods looking for a pot farm while profanely bantering about how so many scary movies take place in a cabin in the woods… [1/5]
Bob Hoose, Plugged In
…Spoofing movies ranging from Black Swan to Mama to Paranormal Activity, this installment of the profitable series is woefully, painfully unfunny. …
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
