Fortunately, or not, she has her posse of Bam, Hattie and Joe to shield off ghosts and killer clowns. It's a fright fest where all hell-arity breaks loose.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's another of Perry's raucous and slovenly comedies of responsibility, which means that its heart is in a very old - and right - place. If only a message that was this solid equalled solid laughs.
Rotten: Although there's a long cinematic tradition of mixing comedy with scares to excellent effect - Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein being a prime example - this lackluster effort manages to be neither funny nor scary.
Rotten: "A Madea Halloween" is rare for Perry in that it's one of only two "Madea" films not adapted from a stage play, but it sure feels like one, with several scenes ... feeling like a one-act, one-room play that goes on and on and on.
Rotten: Boo! is certainly the most watchable Madea movie I've seen in a long time, even though I get the feeling Perry still doesn't know how to direct for the screen.
Kind of false advertisement
First off, I am a Madea fan. I enjoy the material done both live and in film. I saw this movie on opening night and kind of felt let down. The problem is, the promos make this movie into something it isn't. First off, it is essentially a revenge frat movie more in common with Neighbors only with Madea than it is a horror film with Madea. There are legitimately no monsters, zombies, or ghosts just people playing pranks. Keep in mind, this is not a spoiler; you are told this openly very early on!!! So there is no confusion over what is happening. In one trailer Madea fights off zombies with a shotgun. This is not in the movie and is part of this false advertisement. Otherwise, there were some funny lines but just not what I was hoping for.
Loved it, couldn't stop laughing. One of his best.
Best comedy movie ever!!
My family and I loved this movie, we want to watch it over and over again. LOVED IT!! I hope there will be more Madea movies in the future.
