From watching the trailer and seeing the abysmal reviews, I was not looking forward to this one bit, it looked truly awful. But to be completely honest I truly enjoyed it and here's why. In a year where we get this film and Scary Movie 5, both basically based around the same central thing, this definitely comes out on top, and that's because this maintains the same feel of the actual movie it's spoofing and to me that's key in a spoof movie. What I mean is, this has the vibe of an indie spoof movie as the actual film it's spoofing is low budget. Scary Movie 5 drastically failed to do this, having too much irrelevant shit going on the entire time and not being funny at all, but I'm not here to talk about that. A Haunted House overall though isn't great or even that good, it's just a lot better than I expected and I laughed quite a bit, granted there are some scenes in there that are truly unfunny and ridiculously stupid, but if they had have had ore of the pop culture references that were in my opinion very effective, it would've been a lot better. Still a surprise though and I had quite a few laughs, so I'm gonna give it a rating that's just above average, nearly a 3 but still a 2.5.
