A brand new TV spot continues to prove that director Michael Tiddes new spoof, A Haunted House, is a hell of a lot funnier than that Scary Movie nonsense. While I will argue spoof films to the end, and still claim that the king of all spoofs is, and always will be Airplane, there are few which get me excited, or even raise an eyebrow. However, A Haunted House has got me very interested, and I think I might even admit to being a little excited about seeing this one!
The new TV spot uses the classic twelve days of Christmas songs and turns it into the perfect companion piece to the comedy during the festive season. Check it out at the bottom of this post.
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.
