Mayans Were Right as ABC Family Announces HOME ALONE 5: ALONE IN THE DARK

by     Posted 2 years, 38 days ago


Let’s be honest, the Home Alone franchise has been dead ever since Alex D. Linz tried to sit in for Macaulay Culkin as an all new character defending his house against criminals in Home Alone 3. A young Scarlett Johansson even appears in that film, but she probably wants to forget that as much as we do. Since then another terrible sequel with a new young actor bringing Kevin McCallister back into the mix and new burglars featuring French Stewart, but nobody has really been paying attention. Now, on the brink of the predicted end of the world, ABC Family has announced the apocalyptic sounding sequel Home Alone 5: Alone in the Dark.  Hit the jump for more.

Going back to the Christmas feel of the original two films (both of which are solid family films that should be watched every holiday season), this one, which will premiere during the cable network’s 25 Days of Christmas, features a new kid, 8-year-old Finn (Christian Martyn) who is terrified to learn his family is relocating from sunny California to Maine in the scariest house he has ever seen! Convinced that his new house is haunted, Finn sets up a series of elaborate traps to catch the “ghost” in action. Left home alone with his sister (Jodelle Ferland) while their parents are stranded across town, Finn’s traps catch a new target – a group of thieves (Malcolm McDowell, Debi Mazar and Eddie Steeples) who have targeted Finn’s house. What’s that? You already shot yourself in the face? Good move, boss.

    They should have totally used Macaulay Culkin again. That would actually be funny.

    wait i second… home alone 5? there is a home alone 4 movie ?
    i never heard anything about the 4th movie, so i’m guessing it’s not very good.

    MALCOLM McDOWELL!!!! Little Alex? Jesus Christ O’my brothers that’s depressing.

      I know bro. I shed some tears when I got to that part.

  • O.R.

    Wow. The title is soooo creepy-sounding. Doesn’t sound like a kids’ movie at all.

  • Hrbrother

    look for more about real Scarlett by typing Scarlett Johansson clone in Google search bar and you would see much more then in The Island movie..

    The Mayan calendar didn’t include leap years, so — if the Mayan theory was correct, the world would’ve ended 8 months ago.

    But this might change that.

    Jodelle Ferland??? Malcolm McDowell???

    I pray the world ends before this is released.

  • Dan

    You already know your movie is going to fail when the title after the colon is “Alone in the Dark.” Yeah you never thought about that did you ABC? And does Malcolm McDowell really need the money? No.

    Let’s be perfectly clear it won’t be the end of the world untill they announce five more twiturds! This is just something that is known as a shameless cash in!

  • Jackie

    I agree that using someone as talented as Malcolm for a movie as bad as this is horrible, but seriously?! You’re going to pray for the world to end? Good luck praying for a hoax that’ll never happen!

  • Jackie

    Oh and Ethan the Mayan’s predicted a new beginning not an E.L.E.!

    Why does the film industry overkill a franchise… once a film looses favour, so it looses more budget to make it. Then it just ends up being a cheap looking TV Movie!

    This has to be the dumbest idea. My guess it will fail more then home alone 4. It’s just going to ruin the name “home alone”

      Trust me; this is much better than that other Home Alone movie. It’s actually kind of sad seeing how much of an improvement it’s had and how much closer it is to the original franchise.
