This is a Wayan Brothers spoof, "found footage" pastiche, of the Paranormal Activity series of horror films. It's base, crude, lavatorial, and exceedingly vulgar. It's also extremely funny, and sadly, I enjoyed every stupid minute of it!
If you haven't yet seen the original Paranormal Activity, it would probably be a good idea to watch that film first, and then to view this insane send up.
Malcolm Johnson (played by Damon Wayans) is a thirty-something guy who lives alone in a nice detached house in a Los Angeles suburb. His home is full of arcade games and bachelor goodies. His girlfriend Keisha moves in, and introduces herself to the household on day one by inadvertently killing Michael's beloved dog, Shiloh, in quite spectacular fashion. This scene had me laughing out loud, the first of many such occasions.
When Keisha sees a bunch of keys drop to the floor, she leaps to the massive assumption that the house is haunted. However, the reality is that she's possessed by a horny, bisexual, pot-smoking, highly vindictive evil spirit.
The support characters give stupidity a bad name, but in a good way. There's Rosa, who's Michael's nymphomaniac, crack-dealing, indolent Spanish housemaid. There's also Michael's best friend, Steve, who's a pervy, lascivious, very open-minded wife-swapper.
Michael calls in a psychic, Chip, to make contact with the ghost. Chip is a very enthusiastic homosexual, who really couldn't care less about the spirit world, he just wants to get inside Mike's pants. Michael then installs CCTV inside and outside the house, but he's far more interested in making blue movies with Keisha, than capturing the ghost on film. He also deploys some ludicrous ghost-hunting techniques, which he's learned from watching Scooby Doo.

Funny in places, but has nowhere near the amount of laughs there are in other Wayans films. A Haunted House kinda has the feel of a comedy sketch being stretched out over 90 minutes. Worth seeing if you get the Wayans humour. If you're Mark Kermode though, prob best avoid.

3.5 rounded up to a 4.

"Funniest film ever" another reviewer wrote. I could not disagree more, this is probably the least funniest film I've seen in a long time if ever. I didn't like Paranormal Activity but I don't think that's the reason I hated this as I can enjoy a comedy movie if it's funny.

I had few smirks here and there like when Marlon is humping his stuffed toys but there's nothing at all clever in this comedy and I found myself most of the time with my jaw dropped thinking how bad the movie is. For the record I really loved Scary Movie but this movie is just terrible and I struggled to actually get to the end credits. I notice A Haunted House 2 is coming out so I definitely will be giving that one a miss.

Format: Blu-ray
This is a very funny African-American spoof of the found footage films. The humor borders on low brow for much of the film. Kisha (Essence Atkins) moves in with Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and almost immediately claims the house is possessed as she finds her keys on the floor. Malcolm sets up cameras and uses techniques he learned from watching "Scooby-Doo."

If you have seen the Paranormal series, you can't help but laugh at this film which includes a gay psychic (Nick Swardson) who is more interested in Malcolm than the ghost; the camera installer (David Koechner) who also is part of "The Ghost guys"; a priest in training (Cedric the Entertainer) and a couple who want a "Mandingo Party."

The humor while crude, I enjoyed, as it wasn't simply crude for crude's sake.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb, N-word, comical sex, nudity.

Good comedy Film but the seller was cheeky within his email when i received the outer sleeve damage on the bluray and the seller didn't care about sorting the problem so i am given the film 3/5 as the film was good but would give the seller 1/5 star for this cheek...
