The trailer of a family of hicks becomes haunted after an evil demon is released from an ancient mask. The family have to fight off his ancient, poop-filled powers with the help of a TV evangelist.
With a title like "The Haunted Trailer", you obviously know that you're going to get a comedy. Personally, the idea of a haunted trailer sounds like fun, and a smart way to create an independent feature. You just need some imagination and a trailer! Unfortunately there isn't much to "The Haunted Trailer" that tells me they had good imagination. This feels like a movie where a couple of friends get together, decided to pay Ron Jeremy for a part, and just make horribly poor jokes for 90 minutes.
The "plot" is that an ancient demon is released and is making life hard for a family of hicks. That's it. The rest is just poop jokes.
The ancient demon is played by Ron Jeremy, and we all know that if a movie is starring Ron Jeremy in 2014 then it's gonna be horrible. And that's not me only slamming Ron Jeremy - but it's me slamming anyone who thinks it will help their movie by hiring him. He is a personality, there's something fun about him as a person, but he can't act for shit and he never seems to want to be there. He is absolutely terrible as the demon in "The Haunted Trailer".
I have never been very fond of filmmakers who attempt to make a Troma-like movie, but seem to forget completely that the Troma produced titles actually have more to offer than poop jokes. In fact, watching something like "Poultrygeist", it is always the poop jokes that seem to fall flat and are only there "because". But a lot of filmmakers look at Troma and all they see is that being as stupid and immature as you can means you are funny. "The Haunted Trailer" is a mess of a movie because it has nothing else to offer - and I mean nothing - but poop or stereotype redneck jokes. The jokes themselves measure up to a 10 year old's wit. We have redneck brother's putting ice cream up their butts followed by their sister being covered in their poop, an army of poop attacking the mother (played by a man, of course), and... you get it. That should tell you what kind of movie this is, and whether or not it's funny.
What else should I say about this movie? If the movie isn't gonna try to give me anything else than poor jokes about shit, then I won't put more effort into reviewing it than this. "The Haunted Trailer" was probably fun to make for the people who made it, since they obviously love everything that has to do with poop, but as someone who had to sit through it and write a review about it, it's just annoying. I am incredibly tired of what the majority of the independent scene has to offer. Just because you can make something cheap and the internet makes it easy to spread said production, doesn't mean everyone should just put together a series of immature, uninspired jokes. But that's all that people seem to do now, and I feel ashamed for this generation of filmmakers.
