In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other "found footage" movies, A HAUNTED HOUSE features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they're not alone. But it's not the house that's haunted, it's Malcolm's girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder,

Along comes Marlon Wayans to do in A Haunted House what he once did in Scary Movie. And do it much, much worse.
A movie that offends every moral sensibility but delivers few comedic rewards.
Does it even qualify as a movie? Why did it take two people to write and cost $2.5 million to make?
You might chuckle at Wayans huddled in the tub, frantically trying to scrub himself clean of something slightly more earthly-freaky than evil spirits. But watching him get it on with stuffed animals? Ick.
There are vague hints that the story is "really" about the difficulties and anxiety of commitment, but then one of many variations on a fart joke distracts from any actual idea.
If the opening gag in your R-rated movie is an extended flatulence joke you should reconsider whether you're qualified to make such a movie.
This is the first film I've seen that depicts rape perpetrated by a bisexual, weed-smoking ghost, and probably the last.
Truly one of the worst horror spoofs of all time, and there have been some hideous failures over the years. Poorly written, repetitive and offensive on every level without being funny. Wait, I'm just getting started.
I thought coming down with the flu would be the worst thing to happen to me this week. But that was a few days ago when I was still sweating it out in bed and coughing up my lungs... before my immune system was further compromised by A Haunted House.
You know a fright-flick craze is in danger of running its course when Marlon Wayans comes along to broadly, belatedly spoof it.
A Haunted House is just what you'd expect of a spoof aimed squarely at adolescent males.
It's like watching a snuff film, only it's the audience who's dying inside.
Marlon Wayans takes comedic aim at Paranormal Activity and its ilk but scores precious few hits.
The concept relies too heavily on crude gags that feel more desperate than inspired.
Mining the spoof genre he helped reenergize with the "Scary Movie" franchise, Marlon Wayans comes up short with a well-worn scattershot approach that rarely connects with audience funny bones.
There's no reason to reward or encourage any of the people involved with A Haunted House to continue making this type of off-putting (and disposable) raunch-fest.
This found-footage spoof impresses right out of the gate, because in the first five minutes one sacred movie taboo is thrown out the window and pummeled to absolutely absurd lengths.
Who thinks it's high time for a movie that spoofs The Blair Witch Project? Hands! Anyone? Anyone? No?
- Kisha: There's a ghost in the house!
- Malcolm: There's a ghost in your ass.
- Malcolm: Bitch, there's a ghost in the house! Deuces!
- Chip the Psychic: I would say watermelon, but that could be racist.
- Malcolm: Nobody is going to hurt you on my watch. Unless somebody has a gun.
- Malcolm: Oh my god look at all of this shit.
- Kisha: Look on the bright side I am allergic to dogs.
- Malcolm: Thats what was so great about Shiloh. He was hypoallergenic.
