Madea Halloween is a needed win for Lionsgate, and Perry’s best showing in six years as a director. The comedy-horror spool originated from a fake Madea movie featured in Chris Rock’sTop Five, and nabbed an A CinemaScore from audiences.
Perry’s film, which also stars Bella Thorne, Diamond White and Cassi Davis, follows Perry’s popular Madea character as she spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.
