Here's what happens at the end of Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. Tyler Perry - and his famous creation Madea - made his big-screen debut in 2005's Diary Of A Mad Black Woman. The low-budget comedy was based on Perry's play of the same name and the movie became a runaway success in the U.S. Perry followed up with a slew of Madea movies, including Madea's Family Reunion, Madea Witness Protection, and 2019's final installment A Madea Family Funeral.
Outside of Madea, Tyler Perry has become a highly sought after producer and director. He directed both Why Did I Get Married? movies with Janet Jackson and Michael Jai White, I Can Do Bad All By Myself and Acrimony. He's also the producer behind shows like For Better Or Worse and House Of Payne and co-starred in movies like Star Trek and Vice.
The Madea franchise received a change in direction thanks to 2016's Boo! A Madea Halloween. This horror-comedy featured Madea and friends being tormented by zombies and other ghouls during a Halloween party - which turns out to be an elaborate prank. The movie was inspired by the Chris Rock film Top Five which featured a spoof Madea movie called Boo! While the movie didn't receive great reviews - which is par for the course for most of Tyler Perry's output - it did gross over $70 million.
This led to 2017 sequel Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, which revolves around Madea's grandniece Tiffany (Diamond White) wanting to attend a Halloween party with some college frat boys. Her father Brian (also played by Tyler Perry) isn't pleased with this, or the fact his ex-wife Debrah gave Tiffany a car for her birthday without consulting him. Tiffany heads to the party at creepy Lake Derrick with friends, while Madea later heads there to take her back. Some spooky, Friday The 13th-style shenanigans happen at the lake when masked killers wielding chainsaws arrive and some of the partygoers disappear.
Madea and friends also run over a girl with their car who resembles Sadako from The Ring. The second half of Boo 2! A Madea Halloween finds the survivors hiding from the killers and a grim reaper figure, though Madea thinks it all might be a hoax like the events of the previous movie. After some more encounters, the finale reveals it was all set up by Brian to scare Tiffany and friends and teach them a morality lesson. The "victims" are all alive and well; Brian later realizes the masked lunatic with the chainsaw is real and speeds away from the camp.
Again, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween received terrible reviews but managed to beat box-office rivals like Geostorm. It has to be said the sequel was a lazy retread of the original, with the ending being another goofy, Scooby-Doo inspired twist.
