The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2 is a 2021 American comedy horror film about an author whose pimp neighbour may actually be a vampire. The movie is s sequel to the 2016 indie hit Meet the Blacks.

Directed by Deon Taylor (Fatale; The Intruder) from a screenplay co-written with Corey Harrell, based on the latter’s story.

The movie stars Mike Epps (Next Friday, Netflix’s The Upshaws) and Katt Williams (Friday After Next, Scary Movie V) with Bresha Webb (Ride Along 2), Lil Duval (Scary Movie V), Zulay Henao (“The Oath”), Tyrin Turner (Menace II Society), Alex Henderson (Creed), Michael Blackson (Dutch), Andrew Bachelor (Holidate), Gary Owen (Ride Along), and Snoop Dogg returning from the first film. Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn) and Rick Ross join the supporting cast.

“We first made the film because it is rare that we get comedies that speak to the urban culture,” said Deon Taylor.  “After the success of the first film culturally and theatrically, it was only right to service the fans that were demanding a sequel. This is why we make art and why it’s important for more black filmmakers to emerge.”


Carl Black (Mike Epps) is about to face off with the neighbour from hell (Katt Williams). Carl has only ever wanted the best for his family, but after surviving the events that led to his (not-so-) bestselling book, he’s moving everyone to his childhood home.

There, he’ll contend not only with his wife Lorene (Zulay Henao) and kids Allie (Bresha Webb) and Carl Jr. (Alex Henderson) but everyone who drives him crazy: Cronut (Lil Duval), Freezee (Andrew Bachelor), Rico (Tyrin Turner), and an entire neighbourhood of characters who seem to attract strange activity after dark.

And nothing could be more freaky than his new neighbour Doctor Mamuwalde (Williams), who may or may not be a vampire. It will be up to Carl to figure out what his neighbour is up to in the middle of the night before it’s too late for him and his family.
