Marlon Wayans Yuks it up in Found Footage Horror Spoof A Haunted House

Well, this was inevitable. And I suppose it makes sense that Marlon Wayans would be one of the guys fronting this, since he’s been doing the horror parody for a while now with the “Scary Movie” films (along with every other member of the Wayans family, it seems). Wayans has now turned his attention to “A Haunted House”, a spoof of the Found Footage genre made famous by, of course, the “Paranormal Activity” films, but started way back with “The Blair Witch Project”. Fart jokes, ghost balls, and bad breath gags commence!

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.

Wayans, who co-wrote the script, stars along with Essence Atkins, Cedric The Entertainer, Nick Swardson, David Koechner and Affion Crocket. Michael Tiddes makes his directorial debut on the film.
