Remember when a spoof movie actually had jokes about the films they were goofing on? That’s why Scary Movie was so incredible.
Marlon Wayans’ absolutely unwatchable A Haunted House completely missed this, and went straight for pop culture jokes and racial humor (the lowest form of comedy, even below prop comedy). I was hoping for more out of Wayans and Open Road with A Haunted House 2, yet they appear to have learned nothing. It hard to blame them when they’re going to make mega-millions at the box office. Sigh.
Watch a “spoof” of The Conjuring in which Wayans, Cedric the Entertainer and Jaime Pressly make literally no jokes about the James Wan-directed film and literally go straight for the racial humor. I’m out. Enjoy.
Marlon Wayans, Jaime Pressly, Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins, Essence Atkins, Affion Crocket, Dave Sheridan, Hayes MacArthur, Missi Pyle and Cedric The Entertainer all star.
