[Video Interview] Marlon Wayans Says ‘A Haunted House’ Has More Plot Than All Four ‘Paranormal Activity’ Movies Combined

A Haunted House

In theaters January 11 from Open Road Films is Michael Tiddes’ A Haunted House, co-written by and starring Marlon Wayans. Also starring Cedric The Entertainer, David Koechner, Nick Swardson and Essence Atkins. In the Wayans family tradition of successful movies like Scary Movie 1 & 2, Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, and, most recently, Dance Flick, Marlon Wayans co-wrote the script for A Haunted House, along with Rick Alvarez, who has produced several Wayans family movies.

Last week I sat down with Marlon Wayans (who co-wrote the film and plays “Malcolm) and Essence Atkins (who plays his newly moved in girlfriend “Kisha”). They talks about their chemistry onset and how A Haunted House stacks up against its more serious found footage counterparts.

    Everything about this movie sounds pathetic and I don’t even like PA.

  • Jasonicus

    Well, I would hope so. It’s a parody of a series of films that are shot on a camcorder. I’m passing on this. These parodies are never funny and the trailers have proved my theory.

  • ThunderDragoon

    This looks like a funny movie. I’ll watch it.

  • Baphochrist

    Fart jokes a 3rd grader would make. Endless black stereotypes. Pop culture references that will be outdated beyond belief in about two to three years tops. Cringe worthy annoying puns. These movies are made for douchebags.

    this movie DOES kinda look funny-ish and even without seeing the movie i’d bet Wayans is spot on that this movie has more plot than all 4 PA movies. lol. this movie at least looks funnier than the upcoming SCARY MOVIE 5(?) or whatever # they are on.

    • Aaron Emery

      I think it could be some stupid fun at the very least, never forget the Wayans brothers blessed us with Brenda and for that we should be grateful. “That ain’t no man”

  • Zombie-Killa

    Marlon Wayans, plus the constant and VERY annoying “YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS MOVIE BECAUSE IT’S THE FUNNIEST THING YOU’LL EVER SEE!!!!!!!” marketing campaign is driving me away from A Haunted House. Sorry, but I might wait for the Red Box release, because now I don’t feel like paying $10 for a theater showing.

  • Marty McFly

    The sad thing is, this movie will have more of a plot than all of the paranormal craptivity movies combined. Those movies are a joke, and an insult to the horror genre for calling themselves horror movies. They are so fucking mind numbingly boring and stupid, NOTHING even happens in any of the movies except maybe right at the end where a door creaks open, or some pots and pans sway in the wind or some shit. Fuck those movies!!!!!!!! I will be seeing Haunted House and supporting if for trashing those god awful, trendy, watered down excuses of a movie.
