A Haunted House (2013)

After two years, Malcolm finally decides to move his girlfriend in with him, thinking it would be fun to document the experience along with way. Little does he know that Kisha has brought along a little extra baggage in the form of a pesky paranormal entity that terrorizes the couple in their new home! A HAUNTED HOUSE is the latest in a long slew of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY spoofs, this time putting SCARY MOVIE's Marlon Wayans in front of the camera as the terrified tenant, Malcolm. While the film contains the same stupid gags and raunchy humor as the other idiotic attempts like SUPERNATURAL ACTIVITY and 30 NIGHTS OF PARANORMAL ACTIVITY WITH THE DEVIL INSIDE THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, we experience the difference between hiring trained comics and amateur actors first-hand. Wayans is as hilarious as ever playing Malcolm, and draws a laugh even out of the most childish and profane moments in the script. He is joined by several brilliant comics and bit players in equally funny roles, with appearances by David Koechner as Dan the Security Man, Nick Swardson as Chip the Psychic, and Cedric the Entertainer as the recently-released Father Williams. Individually, these characters are given many of the most memorable moments, but there is a clash of personalities as they all join together for the final act. A HAUNTED HOUSE may be debased and utterly depraved, but it is just as enjoyable for fans of the "found footage" genre.

Rating: 8/10.

    "A Haunted House" is totally unwatchable garbage from-first-frame-to-last.
