Open Road Films has unveiled a restricted trailer for Marlon Wayans' "A Haunted House" comedy, which is a spoof of the "Paranormal Activity" franchise. Wayans previously said that the new film will show how the "Paranormal Activity" events would have taken place if it was black people in the house. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: When newlyweds Malcolm (Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) move into their dream house, they quickly find they're not alone. But it's not the house that's haunted, but his wife that is possessed with spirits – or as Malcolm calls it – "relationship baggage." Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghost busters to rid her of the demon, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his marriage... or his sex life for that matter.
Michael Tiddes directed the movie from a script by Wayans. It's set to hit theaters on January 11th, 2013.
If marketed right(and who knows if Open Road Films has the financial strength to put on an effective marketing campaign), this could be a hit. The "found footage" genre is primed to be spoofed by someone effectively.
