A Haunted House 2 catches up with Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) from the first movie. After a demonically-possessed Kisha who seemingly die in a car accident and Malcolm decides leaving  this past plagued by paranormal activity behind and never ever speak of it again in life. Years later, he and his wife Megan (Jaime Pressly) are shown along with their children Becky played by Ashely Rickards and Wyatt played by Steele Stebbins, living together and moving to a new home, their "dream house".

However, things don't go smooth as  strange things starts happening all around Malcolm again like before which includes Becky developing a deep obsession with a mystery box which she found in the house, Wyatt still having that imaginary mysterious friend he calls Tony and is always talking to it, and Malcolm discovering a strange collection of bizarre video footage in the attic of his new home. Malcolm reaches out to take help from others like his old friend "Father Williams"  in a  hope of getting these supernatural problems solved once and for all.

There isn't much of originality in this movie "A Haunted House 2". The primary element of horror is poorly executed not only on paper but on screen as well. There is no sense of pace nor plot to speak about and certainly nothing redeeming about all this wasting of money, time and energy. No doubts that it will make a profit since the last one somehow made $60 million on an investment of $2.5 million, but just because the movie makes money doesn't actually mean that it has to be made.
