For better or for worse, Marlon Wayans has already contributed a good amount to the horror spoof subenre. After all, he co-wrote, produced and starred in both Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2. But apparently that wasn't quite enough for him - he wanted more.

And so what we're now getting is A Haunted House. A send up found footage movies like Paranormal Activity, The Devil Inside, and The Last Exorcism, the movie is the first that he has written since 2009's Dance Flick, and by the look of the new red band trailer I wish he had decided not to pick up the pen. The restricted preview premiered over at VIBE Magazine and you can watch it below.



You know what bothers me? Marlon Wayans has proven that he has talent and can work with amazing directors - remember, this is the same guy who did Requiem For A Dream with Darren Aronofsky and The Ladykillers with the Coen brothers. It's cool that he's films that he wants to make (I assume), but at the same time it does feel a bit like he's wasting his skills.

Directed by Michael Tiddes, A Haunted House follows Malcolm and Keisha (Wayans, Essence Atkins) as they move into the house of their dreams - but are disturbed to learn that their new home has a demonic spirit living in it. Naturally this leads the couple to hiring a number of "experts" to try and help them with their problem. The supporting cast includes comedians such as David Koechner, Nick Swardson, and Cedric the Entertainer. The movie will be in theaters January 11th and you can see more from it in our Blend Film Database.
