Of course, Marlon Wayans is no stranger to turning horror film cliches into comedy (and box office) gold; after all, his "Scary Movie" series of films was arguably even more popular than the "Scream" series it was spoofing.
This time around, though, Marlon is aiming squarely at the current fad of found footage horror, with "Paranormal Activity" and its many imposters lined up dead in his crosshairs. And given that he's being joined by comedy veterans Nick Swardson, David Koechner and Cedric the Entertainer, we have a feeling this is going to be one spoof that exorsizzles.
Here's your first look at "A Haunted House," which is set to arrive in theaters on Jan. 11, presented for your enjoyment by Marlon Wayans himself.
