Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Tiffany travels to Derrick Lake to celebrate her 18th birthday at a Halloween frat party in the middle of the woods at a “haunted” campground. Frantic and worried, Madea, Aunt Bam and Hattie hop in the car to save her from the same terrible fate that befell a group of teens there years earlier. Chaos soon strikes when the would-be heroes find themselves fighting for their lives against an array of spooky monsters, goblins and boogeymen.”

Movie Critics
…The trailer promised comic scares but the movie provided none… Madea got her revenge by trapping the frat boys in a prison bus with big, burly prisoners just itching to sexually assault them. …[2]
Odie Henderson,
…Either you're part of the fan base that keeps this staggeringly untalented director making movies, or you can barely imagine finding him funny. …[Madea’s sister] Joe…spends most of the time talking about his glory days as a pimp. “Your mama was a hard-working ho',” he tells Brian [his son]. Given the nature of Joe's patter—he finds not one but two occasions to make denture-free-fellatio jokes—one wonders about the movie's obvious dubbing, in which many instances of “d*mn” and a few other curses are replaced by “darn” and the like. Whose perverse family values are we conforming to here? …
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
…Even for fans of Tyler Perry, his burlesque horror sequel is running on fumes. (Uncle Joe gets all the good lines, and there aren't many.) …
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
…In this sequel that feels like a remake, all prospects for amusement are never even vaguely realized. …
Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
…All trick, no treat… a shoddy, low-laugh outing… offers few laughs… Lovely, Davis and Perry continue to bounce off each other with enjoyable results, but the film lumbers along whenever they’re not on screen together. Careless dubbing, particularly around minimizing Madea’s cursing, distracts the audience from her dialogue. …
