Unfortunately, the first trailer for Dimension Films’ horror comedy spoof Scary Movie 5 has been released.  Everything about this is terrible, as the trailer highlights the film’s awful, unfunny acting, annoying overuse of clichés, and abundance of physical “comedy.”  The trailer also uses Danny Elfman’s swell score from Beetlejuice, which is offensive to Elfman, Beetlejuice, and good movies in general.  The only familiar face here from the previous films is Simon Rex, and the series actually feels pretty outdated.  Scary Movie 5 spoofs films like Black Swan and Inception, which just seems old at this point.  The pic also takes on the Paranormal Activity franchise, but Scary Movie creator Marlon Wayans has his own PA spoof called A Haunted House set for release in January.  Having now seen trailers for both films, I feel confident in saying that A Haunted House will look like Citizen Kane compared to Scary Movie 5.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Lindsay Lohan, Ashley Tisdale, Heather Locklear, and Katt WilliamsScary Movie 5 opens on April 12th.
