A Haunted House (2013) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review[ Movie Page: A Haunted House (2013) ]
Marlon Wayans is the co-writer of A Haunted House and the first movies in the Scary Movie franchise, so it does not surprise me that I did not enjoy this movie, as well. The only movie/TV series I enjoyed from Marlon was Soul Train Comedy Awards (1993) and In Living Color (1992). Marlon is also a producer and actor in A Haunted House. He plays the role of Malcolm who brings all the comedy to life in this horror comedy movie. The comedy saves this movie and is the reason I gave it a three or else it would have gotten a one. The movie does have comedy that will make you burst out laughing. Marlon over-killed the nude butt scenes.
A Haunted House is a dark humor horror comedy film that I will not see again. I do not recommend A Haunted House to younger viewers because there is a lot of suggested sexual content that teenagers should not even see. A Haunted House contains too many sexual content that involves some nudity, profanity, little violence, drug use etc. There is no suspense or frightening scares. Michael Tiddes did a poor job at executing this movie and that may be to his lack of experience in directing. He only directed one previous movie, Crawl Space in 2007.
Malcolm (Marlon Wayans - The Heat, Marmaduke, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) prepares for his girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins - Another Stateside, Holiday Road Trip, Dysfunctional Friends) to move in with him. Everything was going fine until upon Kisha’s arrival. First thing she does is run over Malcolm’s dog and kills him. A lot of paranormal activity started to happen and Kisha finally confesses to Marlon that she has made a deal with the Devil for a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes. Is the house possessed or is Kisha’s devil haunting them for his payment?
There’s not much to say about this movie except that it is a stupid funny horror comedy. I was shocked at some moments in this movie. I was shocked at the maid’s scene on the table and around the table after the cameras were installed. I never saw a movie where a person washes their genital area with bleach, gasoline, comet powder detergent and other things not meant for that area of the body.
Synopsis:Malcolm and Kisha move into their dream home, but soon learn a demon also resides there. When Kisha becomes possessed, Malcolm - determined to keep his sex life on track - turns to a priest, a psychic, and a team of ghost-busters for help. |
