First Trailer For Scary Movie 5 - Plus Red Band Trailer For Marlon Wayans\' Haunted House
If we're going to have the trailer for Scary Movie 5, and we are, then we may as well have the red band trailer for its competitor, A Haunted House too.
Well, they're competitors in that they'll be released three months apart but are both spoofing recent horror movies - and sometimes the same ones. By mid-summer they'll both be clogging up the same shelves in Target.
Wayans co-wrote and starred in the first Scary Movie. I supposeA Haunted House is his way of staying in the game. And by game I mean miserable practice of spoofing popular films, mainly but not exclusively in the horror genre, and charging people to be appalled by what you've done.
He needs a less frustrating game. Here's hoping he gets Monopoly for Christmas.
