A Haunted House Reviews

Russell Hainline
Movie Mezzanine

Neither worthy of my laughter nor capable of inducing sleep. No, this is one of those rare films where its badness turns the cogs of your brain.

Quickflix

A Haunted House is technically inept, monotonous, and stiflingly cheap-looking. How this cost $2.5 million dollars to produce is beyond me.

The National

Too banal to be offensive, it's certainly one to miss

Shadows on the Wall

Frustratingly, there's actually talent on-screen that hints at what could have been a cleverly comical take on the found-footage genre.

Heck, worse films starring Robert De Niro have been released this year.

Yet another spoof from Wayans and Alvarez, this movie isn't nearly as bad as it could have been (they also produced the resolutely unfunny Scary Movie 2 and Dance Flick).

Cinema Crazed

There's just an odd recurrence of homophobic humor in the entire movie that compensates for lack of actual humor.

This send up of the Paranormal Activity films provides a few laughs here and there, but for the most part its crude and clichéd script is ridiculously stupid, embarrassingly over the top and occasionally offensive.

This Haunted House needs a KEEP OUT sign nailed to the door.

SFX Magazine

Just another in a long line of mercilessly unfunny spoofs.

June 17, 2013

Clearly what the world needs right now is another low-rent horror movie spoof. And this one's not bad. Sticking to Paranormal Activity for its premise, it actually produces some pretty funny moments.

The Sun Herald

A painfully unfunny, overly familiar send-up of recent horror franchises.

Simon Foster
Screen-Space

Sporadically misogynistic, homophobic and grade-school puerile in equal measure, it is also not without the occasional laugh-out-loud moment.

Total Film

The moments where you feel the cast are off-script and riffing are fun if not actually funny, but the most horrific thing on offer here is misogyny.

Dreadful.

Urban Cinefile

Somewhere between a spoof on Paranormal Activity and crazy fun, film gathers pace and comedic momentum as it goes. The cumulative effect, especially if enjoyed in a group of relaxed friends, is likely to be hilarity ... black dude jive kinda hilarity

Seven Days

This is the first film I've seen that depicts rape perpetrated by a bisexual, weed-smoking ghost, and probably the last.

Movie Chambers

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.

Time Out Chicago

You know a fright-flick craze is in danger of running its course when Marlon Wayans comes along to broadly, belatedly spoof it.
