As previously reported, The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2 stars Mike Epps as Carl Black, a suburban dad whose life is spun upside down when a peculiar cast of characters attract strange activity after dark. His new neighbor Dr. Mamuwalde (Katt Williams) seems to be living a double life as both a pimp and a vampire, and Carl gets in some antics to protect his wife and kids.

The sequel follows the success of the 2016 hit Meet The Blacks, which centered on Epps as he moved his family from Chicago to Beverly Hills and endured the annual purge while trying to keep them safe in his new, odd neighborhood.

The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2 arrives in theaters on Friday, June 11. Lionsgate will partner with Hidden Empire to release the film on demand and on blu-ray/DVD later this summer.
