The Wayans Brothers had great success with the Scary Movie franchise, but Shawn and Marlon Wayans left that series behind after the second movie. However Marlon still thinks there’s money to be made in horror parodies, so he’s co-written and stars in A Haunted House, which takes Paranormal Activity as its main target of fun.
The new red band trailer doesn’t exactly make it look like a comedy masterpiece, but then Scary Movie wasn’t exactly great, but still proved popular.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’ No UK release date is set yet, but it reaches US cinemas January 11th.
