About A Haunted House
Continuing the tradition of unimaginatively-named spoof comedies, A Haunted House makes fun of haunted house movies, most notably the phenomenally successful Paranormal Activity series and its many found-footage style imitators. Goofy, cuddly-toy-loving Malcolm (veteran of the earlier movies in the Scary Movie franchise, Marlon Wayans) decides to show his girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) that he is committed and asks her to move into his suburban home in Los Angeles. Having set up cameras to document their new domestic bliss, Malcolm soon becomes aware of strange occurrences around the house. It appears that a demon is fixated on Kisha. They call in a shady priest (Cedric The Entertainer) to exorcise the property as well as an electronics expert (David Koechner) and a psychic (Nick Swardson) who takes a shine to Malcolm.
