A Haunted House (2013)

A Haunted House (2013)

I did not expect much from A Haunted House.  I decided to skip seeing the movie in the theatre.  I knew that it was not going to be the greatest, although I thought it might be at least good for a few laughs.  I was wrong, dead wrong.

I figured the movie would be like Scary Movie (2000) or any of its 4 sequels.  Why shouldn’t it be?  It is a spoof movie like those movies.  It was written by Marlon Wayans who also wrote all of those movies.  He also stars in those movies.  It is bound to be at least kind of funny like those movies, right?  I thought it would be and that is why I watched it.  I was sorely mistaken.  I can honestly say that A Haunted House was one of the worst movies that I have ever seen.  Not the worst, but certainly one of them.  That is saying a lot, because I have literally seen thousands of movies.

The film is a spoof on Paranormal Activity (2007) and several other horror movies.  Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) asks his girlfriend (Essence Atkins) to move in with him.  As soon as she arrives, bad things start happening.  Paranormal events occur and the couple eventually starts to think that their house is haunted.

I am not lying when I tell you that I did not laugh once during the entire movie.  I knew that the movie would be raunchy and stupid, but it went way beyond that.  Instead of being raunchy humor and stupid humor, it was just stupid and sick.  Moments that were on the verge of being funny, fell flat because they were extremely unoriginal.

The movie was written my Marlon Wayans and Rick Alvarez.  It was directed by Michael Tiddes.  The cast also includes Marlene Forte, David Koechner, Dave Sheridan, Nick Swardson, Andrew Daly, Cedric the Entertainer, Affion Crockett, and J.B. Smoove.

A Haunted House is a comedy without the laughs.  The movie is a complete waste of time and money.  My only hope is that I am able to spare you the torture of viewing this rancid piece of excrement.

I rate this movie a 1 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or run?  RUN!  And don’t look back.

Teaser Trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues (2013)

Anchorman: The Legend Continues (2013)

Will Ferrell’s raunchy Ron Burgundy will be back on the big screen for what is bound to be more insanely amusing reporting.

As far as I know, the film has not been completed yet, so some details of what I write could end up being false if the filmmakers decide to make any changes before the final product.  As of right now, it appears that the majority of the cast that was in the first film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) will return for the sequel.  With all the sequels floating around in Hollywood, it surprises me that it took them 9 years before they actually made this sequel.  But, I am glad that they didn’t go with the title Anchorman 2.

The teaser trailer does not reveal much, but with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, David Koechner, and Luke Wilson (rumored) all back again for more, and also with the rumored additions of Harrison Ford, John C. Reilly, James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, and Meagan Good, the film is bound to be a hit.

Will Farrell once again writes and Adam McKay is in the director’s chair for another go round.

When the film releases, you can expect me to be in a theatre seat not long after.  Even though I’m annoyed with sequels, you just can’t go wrong with certain sequels.

The movie is rumored to release on 12/20/13.
