Slightly better than the really crappy "Date Movie, Epic Movie, etc" series of films, if only because Marlon Wayans (as much as I hate to admit it) actually looks like he's having a lot of fun. Throw in some random comedians (Cedric the Entertainer, Nick Swardson, David Koechner) and you have a movie that, while not good per se, is at least entertaining. Plus, if you like all those found footage films, it does a good job of making them look silly.

Ok this film is nowhere near as bad as some are saying in fact i laughed quite a bit through it. I have a strange sense of humour? Maybe, however i would watch anything starring any of the Wayans brothers over anything that is brought out recently in the comedy genre, that much is for sure! In a send up to most of the 'found footage' genre of horror A Haunted House pulls no punches right from the start making fun of everything from 'The Blair Witch Project' all the way to 'The Devil Inside' Sure there were some stale moments so to speak but the laugh out loud moments more then made up for them. A good flick in my opinion.

Exactly what 2 stars say, This movie was average. No absolutely hilarious moments, there were some funny moments but for me they seemed too far and beyond to be only a comedy movie. A type of black comedy, quirky, immature humor but we all need that at times, so long as your not some Debbie downer then you could like this movie but it isn't anything special..... almost exactly what you would expect from Marlon Wayans

Not A Complete Waste, But Pretty Close

The previews made this film look abysmal, but it's not quite as bad as expected. The energy and comic timing of the cast makes a few scenes work and there are one or two laugh-out-loud moments. Of course, just like the ill-fated Scary Movie trilogy, A Haunted House often goes for broad parody and low humor than smart satire of the found footage genre, which often results in pointless and tired fart and poop jokes. Its commitment to recreating its obvious source material is admirable, but the resulting plot is thin, even for a comedy, and disjointed, and, by the end, the comic energy (what little there was to start,) has completely vanished into a series of lame gags. Could have been fairly good, especially since the found footage horror film is still being run into the ground and has ...
