Family Movie Review: A Haunted House (R)

AHauntedHouse ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): 0

MPAA Rating: R        Length: 86 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 15+. Teens will want to see it, but man, is it stupid. Profanity and crude language; jokes about gender, race, and bodily functions; lots of sex jokes, references, imagery, and suggested sexual encounters, including those of a paranormal nature; a particularly offensively portrayal of stereotypical homosexual character; some drug use; and all-around bad taste. 

Found-footage horror films have gotten stale enough. But ‘A Haunted House,’ a parody of the genre from writer and star Marlon Wayans, manages to be worse than any of the scary films it mocks. So much worse.

By Roxana Hadadi

Don’t give Marlon Wayans any satisfaction by going to see “A Haunted House.” Wayans cut his scary-movie-mockery teeth on, of course, the “Scary Movie” franchise, and has since moved on to mocking other genres, like with 2009’s “Dance Flick.” But “A Haunted House,” his latest with co-writer Rick Alvarez and director Michael Tiddes, is particularly bad. Maybe it’s the misogyny or the homophobia or the terrible writing or the tired jokes or … well, anything, really. Pretty much every element of “A Haunted House” is garbage.
