There will be tricks, there will be treats and all hell will break loose in Tyler Perry’s first horror-comedy, “Boo! A Madea Halloween.” After releasing the first poster for the feature, the official trailer has arrived, courtesy of Lionsgate.

In the latest Madea adventure, the tough and stubborn gal reluctantly ends up having to babysit a group of wild teenagers on Halloween night. While the misbehaving teens figure out a way to go to a huge party around the corner, Madea and her friends wind up in the middle of mayhem, fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies.

The hilarious trailer starts off with eerie music and a hellish looking clown creeping around. As he approaches Madea with musical clown box, she yells at him to not get any closer and in Madea fashion ends up punching the clown inside.

Bella Thorne, Diamond White, John West Jr., Jimmy Tatro and Cassi Davis round out the cast. Perry wrote, directed and produced the feature.

The idea for the film originated from Chris Rock’s 2014 movie “Top Five,” which included a fake Madea Halloween flick. Perry told Jimmy Fallon during a “Tonight Show” appearance that Lionsgate called him because they loved the idea — and the rest is history.
