Horror spoofs and parodies aren’t exactly brimming with originality these days. Aside from already having endless source material to weave into a rather thin and nonsensical plot with sporadic attempts at humour thrown in you’d have thought maybe some effort would at least go in to the marketing materials. But no such luck. Open Road Films have revealed the latest parody poster which this time focuses on the one-sheet for last years ‘The Possession’ and becomes one of many posters (and hopefully the last!) that already mocks and merely tweaks an existing design. ‘A Haunted House’ opens this Friday in the US and stars Marlon Wayans (‘Scary Movie’), Essence Atkins (‘Dance Flick’), Cedric the Entertainer, David Koechner (‘Final Destination 5’), Nick Swardson, Dave Sheridan (‘Scary Movie’) and Affion Crocket. Check out the new poster below.
“In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A HAUNTED HOUSE features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.”
