An amusing trailer lands for Paranormal Activity and other found footage horror spoof ‘A Haunted House’, courtesy of Marlon Wayans

You may have noticed a lack in reporting on Scary Movie 5 here. While I do my best to cover the essentials, I do really care for these so-called comedies and Scary Movie became unfunny half way through the first film. However, the writer of those films, Marlon Wayans, is back but this time he will not only be writing, but starring in new horror spoof, A Haunted House.

The trailer recently went on-line thanks to Yahoo and I will be honest, I raised a few chuckles, which tells me this won’t exactly be great but it might be a lot of fun. From the trailer it is clear the film rips on all the found footage horror flicks around right now, especially Paranormal Activity and The Devil Inside, so watch the trailer and see if you can spot all the jokes built on essentially taking the piss.

A Haunted House is directed by Micheal Tiddes and written by Marlon Wayans and Rick Alvarez. The film stars Marlon Wayans, Nick Swardson, Cedric the Entertainer, David Koechner and Essence Atkins. The film arrives in US cinemas 11th January 2013, however there is no date set for the UK.


In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A HAUNTED HOUSE features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
