SBH BLOG: Get Ready To Scream….

Screen shot 2014-04-17 at 9.41.56 AM

The stars of A Haunted House 2 stopped by to show SBH some love: (left to right) Marlon Wayans, Affion Crockett and Gabriel Iglesias.

with laughter! Open Road’s horror/comedy A Haunted House 2 hits theaters tomorrow! Inspired by the latest supernatural horror movie franchises and starring funny men Marlon Wayans, Affion Crockett and Gabriel Iglesias, this sequel definitely delivers! The stars of the film visited with SBH and dished about the hairstyles they love to see on the ladies (of course!)—as well as on their own supernatural experiences…

What hairstyles do you love on women?

MARLON: “I think short hair is sexy. I don’t think women understand they don’t have to get a whole boatload of weaves. If you like that, cool, but guys like me would rather you just be natural. I don’t like the hair to distract from the face.”

AFFION: “I like Natural hair. My pet peeve is anything fake on a woman’s hair. I don’t like when women try to wear a ponytail and they have tracks so they have to do a modified ponytail that only goes in one direction and it looks like a ‘shark fin.’ Anything Natural is sexy to me.”

GABRIEL: “I like ponytails. I don’t like when the haircolor is so extreme it’s like: really? I don’t want to feel like I’m dating someone that hangs out at Comic-Con.”

Have you ever had a supernatural experience?

MARLON: “No, I wish I did!”

AFFION: “I believe that it happens, but I’ve never had a crazy, haunting experience. [If I do], I’m going to run out with a gun crying, just like in A Haunted House. Yeah, I’m not going to stick around.”

GABRIEL: “No, no supernatural. If I come home and the walls are bleeding, there’s a good chance I’m going to leave.”
