'A Haunted House' Trailer: Marlon Wayans Gives 'Paranormal Activity' the 'Scary Movie' Treatment

'A Haunted House' Trailer: Marlon Wayans Gives 'Paranormal Activity' the 'Scary Movie' Treatment

Oct 22, 2012

It's already had knockoffs like Paranormal Entity, and soon will even have an official, Latin-themed spin-off, so it was only a matter of time before Paranormal Activity was privy to its own spoof franchise. In this case, it comes from a horror movie-spoof regular: Marlon Wayans.

The cocreator of Scary Movie not only stars in but wrote the simply titled A Haunted House, which has just unveiled its first trailer. And, as a fan of both the PA franchise and the first Scary Movie, it looks... well, it looks like a Marlon Wayans spoof movie. Take pop-culture phenomenon, inject a bunch of caricatures into it. It's not cinematic brain surgery (then again, neither is the series it's spoofing).

That's not exactly a complaint or a compliment, either. A Haunted House just looks precisely as predictable as a Paranormal Activity spoof would.
