Meet the Blacks

2016, R, 90 min. Directed by Deon Taylor. Starring Mike Epps, Zulay Henao, Bresha Webb, Lil Duval, Alex Henderson, Mike Tyson, DeRay Davis, Perez Hilton.

Not reviewed at press time. Uh-oh, someone's cutting into Marlon Wayons' movie-spoof business. In this comedic takeoff on The Purge, a family moves to L.A. right before the purge, an annual event during which all hell breaks loose.
