Hallo-ween-a-loooo yerrrr!!!!! 

MADEA is up to her old tricks… plus some!  Imagine this: The busty broad herself..running away from the weekend Box office screaming: “Good LORT!!! We won! We WON!!!”


Oh yes She/he did!!!  BOO… A MADEA Halloween movie…earned more than 27 Million in ticket sales…

MADEA Creator/ Director/ Actor Tyler Perry didn’t just “raise the roof” –He raised CONCERN about MADEA movies being available in just a few locations. He’s thinks this movie can bring in even BETTER returns… if it were easier for people to see. Hmmmmm….๐Ÿค”

Perry said  it is extremely difficult getting MADEA films in more theaters… especially those in predominantly white areas… 

According to reports…FANS in key areas…are often disappointed because they don’t get a chance to watch MADEA… in all her BLAZING GLORY! 


Whelp! Since Tyler Perry put it out there for everyone to know about…Let’s hope what’s been happening in the DARK… will come to LIGHT… and into more theaters will BIG & BOLD MARQUEES…. that no one will miss!

The demand for more screens… just might turn things around for Tyler Perry productions.. 

Record crowds are expected to pack theaters out for TRICK -or-TREAT!!!! 

More people of all RACES need to HOWL with laughter together! Especially in a time…when so many **SCARY** things are happening in these days…and times FOR REAL!

I hope MORE theaters open up in the future for MADEA… -or- 

Vroooom!!!! This MATRIARCH of the Night… is gonna fire up the chainsaw… and “CUT UP!!!” ZoOooM!!! Va!!! Va!!!! VRoOoOoMM!!!

๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ

Now THIS movie… OUIJA is based on a wicked GAME..((so to speak)), but it will rattle all the pieces in your MIND trying to figure out…. What the HECK is happening up in here!!!!

Just when you ~think~ you know where this is going……. NAH… You won’t see what’s coming (quick dark flash… outta the corner…๐ŸŒš…wha.. .. what..what was that?!?  -shutters-)

As tense moments get more and more weird…You’re gonna stiffen up in your seat… cause you know THIS IS A HORROR MOVIE… and…. things can’t be so nicey-nice for much longer… and BAM!!! 

Evil hits! Right in the back of the neck!  and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!!

In my creepy voice: “It’s a ~chilling~ experience… where tension consistently builds up…with you sucking in your breath…and gasping!  because it’s so E-VIL!!!!! 

Wait for it… Wait for it…๐Ÿ‘€ Cue the EVIL LAUGH: ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ “Ahhh-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaaaa!!!!”

Tip:  Go with a group of folks for the BEST reactions…and so you can have “spirited conversation” afterwards…and go and enjoy some treats..or a hearty meal afterwards.

Or… you can just go with your BOO… or another couple too..and snuggle up! ๐Ÿ‘ฅ ((( Hold me tighter babe… I’m scared….))) Gasp! Clutching your honey’s clothes super tight: “Did you see that??? Ahhh shoot! I don’t have a good feeling about this.. ((( screams!!!)))
