Interview: Marlon Wayans Brings the Funny to ‘A Haunted House 2’

13 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Marlon Wayans will do practically anything for a laugh, and that is to the audience’s advantage in the sequel to last year’s smash comedy, “A Haunted House 2.” Joining him for the second go around is hot comic Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and the reliable Affion Crockett, who is reprising his role as Cousin Ray Ray.

A Haunted House 2’ was given the green light after the success of last year’s “A Haunted House.” Marlon Wayans – with his writing partner Rick Alvarez – has formulated another spoof regarding the latest horror films, in this case mostly from last year’s “The Conjuring.” Wayans, who is also part of the Wayans Brothers comedy family, leaves no hilarious stone unturned as he sends up all of the weird elements of that film, and his on-screen supporting cast brings great improvisation and comic timing to the mix.

'A Haunted House 2' Preview: Don't Sneak Up on Marlon Wayans (Exclusive)

20 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) can't catch a break when it comes to his love life. He thought he'd left all that supernatural nonsense in the past, after the death of his girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) in "A Haunted House." She was possessed by a rather... noxious entity, and the whole unfortunate event concluded with her death. Man, love stinks.

Things aren't looking any more promising for Malcolm in "A Haunted House 2," as you can see from this exclusive clip from the movie. He's shacked up with a new gal named Megan (Jaime Pressly) and her two kids, and things are copacetic between the living -- it's just the house they've got to worry about. Oh, and Kisha's returned from the dead. That's kind of a problem too.

A simple game of hide and seek (with that whole creepy clapping thing you might remember from "The Conjuring") ends poorly for everyone »

Next A Haunted House 2 One-Sheet Conjures Up More Laughs

15 April 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's getting to the point that horror movie success can now be measured by how many posters the A Haunted House series deems fit to spoof. Today's A Haunted House 2 poster goes back to The Conjuring and we can't help but snicker. Dig it!

The sequel to A Haunted House catches back up with Malcolm (Wayans), who is trying to get a fresh start after having to exorcise demons out of his ex. However, moving into a beautiful home with his new girlfriend and her two children does nothing to stop the paranormal — or the humor.

Marlon Wayans, Jaime Pressly, Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins, Essence Atkins, Affion Crocket, Dave Sheridan, Hayes MacArthur, Missi Pyle, and Cedric The Entertainer star.

Open Road Films is releasing the spoof, which is directed by Michael Tiddes and co-written by Wayans and Rick Alvarez. Look for it on April 18th.

Cs Video: Marlon Wayans and the Cast of A Haunted House 2

14 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

This Friday, the front door opens to A Haunted House 2 , the big screen followup to last year's box office hit, which grossed more than $40 million domestically on a $2.5 million budget. Marlon Wayans is back as star, producer and co-writer (with Rick Alvarez) for the horror/comedy mash-up, welcoming back stars like Essence Atkins, Affion Crockett and Cedric the Entertainer with new cast members that include Jaime Pressly, Ashley Rickards, Gabriel Iglesias and Missi Pyle. Beginning just moments after the end of A Haunted House , the new comedy immediately jumps forward a year to find Wayans' Malcolm moving into a new house with his new girlfriend (Pressly) and her two kids. It's not long, though, before sinister forces are up to their old tricks and Malcolm's fascination with »

Exclusive Interview: Jaime Pressly Talks A Haunted House 2 Too!

10 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In A Haunted House 2, Jaime Pressly plays Megan – the lighter side of an interracial couple with more than the usual problems. A mother of two, she and her kids move in with Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) – but little does she know his possessed ex-girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) is living right next door...

And there’s nothing worse than a scorned demonic woman.

Pressly is no stranger to the horror genre (her first starring role was in the straight to video sequel to Poison Ivy, back in 1997), but she’s mostly known for comedy (the actress won two Emmys for her performance as Joy in "My Name Is Earl") – so what could be more perfect than mixing the two for A Haunted House 2?

We had a chance to sit down with Ms. Pressly at a press junket in Beverly Hills and get the scary scoop, 1:1.

Set Visit Coverage: 5 Fun Facts We Learned on the Set of A Haunted House 2

31 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The house I’m in holds a lot of mysteries within its walls and halls. From infidelity to unnatural deaths, this place definitely packs a patina of evil. Beginning with its stint as a secret-keeping casa in the dark drama American Beauty...

And now serving as the home of haunted Malcolm and his new wife, this eclectic Colonial Revival reeks of atmosphere... and cyber-farts.

You may remember Malcolm (played by Marlon Wayans, who is making his feature directorial debut here) from the first A Haunted House movie, in which horror films such as Paranormal Activity and Insidious were shamelessly spoofed. For this sequel, we’ll see riffs on The Conjuring, The Possession, and Sinister. In fact, the day I’m on set Marlon is acting out the never-ending Skype scene from Sinister – but instead of passing along advice, the online professor is passing gas.

Along for the return ride is Rick Alvarez, »
