If you there’s a chance you have yet to receive your fill of scary movie spoofs, well Charlie Sheen and the gang are rearing up the once popular movie series up again just for you.

Indeed, filled with a host of guest appearances from Katt Williams and actresses Lindsay Lohan, Heather Locklear, ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’s’ Sheree Whitfield, and more, it seems Sheen is back at it – spoofing the hottest in scary movie films since their latest parody trek ‘Scary Movie 4’.

Before the film hits theatres on April 19, 2013, see above for your first look:

Fans in love with the love story of Kal & Tariq or the pressing dramas of CW‘s ‘L.A. Complex’ other characters probably won’t love hearing news of its cancellation.

Indeed, the Canadian show that certainly built its fair share of buzz on the American side of the border, was passed on renewal for a third season by its Canadian parent channel.  Now, American audiences have been handed news that the series will not be renewed on CW either.

Despite series-long earning generally positive reviews, the show courted extremely low viewers on a weekly basis.  This is separate from already holding the record as the lowest-ever ratings for a broadcast drama series premiere.  However, much like CW‘s former hit series ‘The Game’, there is already buzz brewing that the series may be picked up by another channel.
