Blu-ray Review: A Haunted House
Street Date: April 23, 2013
Available On: DVD, Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo
Synopsis: When Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) asks his girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) to move in with him he gets more than he bargained for as brings a demonic presence along with her.
Extras: “How to Survivea Paranormal Presence” Featurette
Recommendation: In recent years we’ve been given a handful of fantastic horror parody films. Cabin in the Woods, Shaun of the Dead, Tucker & Dale vs Evil and Drag Me to Hell were all gloriously funny and gory. Unfortunately A Haunted House isn’t remotely funny as it attempts to cash in on the success of the Paranormal Activity series (which has more or less run its course as well) and the terrible The Devil Inside. The script relies entirely on scatological or sexual humor and feels like a cheap rip off of the lackluster Scary Movie films. To say that I didn’t enjoy A Haunted House would be an epic understatement. A sequel is scheduled for released in early 2014. Heaven help us.
