Marketing for SCARY MOVIE 5 and A HAUNTED HOUSE is ramping up, which means we've finally got a trailer for the former and a holiday themed TV spot for the latter. I've put them back to back so you can enjoy the, ahem, "humor" in one easy to digest package. Now, now, don't all of you go thanking me at the same time.
Neither looks like a comedy classic, but I've gotta say A HAUNTED HOUSE seems like the winner of the two. Not only is it the brainchild of SCARY MOVIE franchise co-creator Marlon Wayans, it has the strength of looking like an actual horror movie parody, rather than simply a string of bad sketches threaded together with even worse celebrity cameos (seriously, Madea? WTF?!).
I could launch into a tangent against this brand of horror-comedy that could last all day, but that would be about as efficient as yelling at a cloud. Instead I'll wrap this up by telling you A HAUNTED HOUSE hits theaters January 11th. It stars the aforementioned Wayans, Essence Atkins, Nick Swardson, Alanna Ubach and David Koechner. SCARY MOVIE 5 will be out April 12th. It stars Ashley Tisdale, Kate Walsh, Terry Crews, Jerry O'Connell, Katt Williams, and Molly Shannon. Enjoy(?) the videos below.
