‘A Haunted House’ Review

A Haunted House is the first raunchy parody concocted by Marlon Wayans (he’s the star, co-writer and producer) without assistance from his brothers Shawn and Keenen Ivory. Together, the three have brought us spoofs like Scary Movie 1 & 2 and Dance Flick – in addition to non-pc comedies that people love-to-hate (White Chicks, LiTTLEMAN) – but does the “magic” vanish when it’s just Marlon, cracking sex gags and fart jokes while taking potshots at the found-footage supernatural horror movie sub-genre?

Surprisingly, Haunted House does call back to the Wayans’ breakout comedy Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, with elements of culturally and racially-based satirical humor aimed primarily at the recent slate of found-footage movies boasting predominantly caucasian casts. The problem is, well… everything else.

Story-wise (in case you care): The shenanigans involve Malcolm ...

Marlon Wayans Stars In Open Road Films’ A Haunted House Trailer

See Marlon Wayans in A Haunted House, creeping into theaters January 11, 2013. Known for the Scary Movies franchise, Wayans tweeted. “A Haunted House is special to me. It’s my first venture on my own as a writer/producer/creator/star thK god for my great cast & team Ra & Mt.” The comedy is directed by Michael Tiddes who’s worked with the Wayans Brothers on Littleman and White Chicks.

In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A Haunted House features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to

Marlon Wayans Tackling Even More Horror Spoofage for Smart Ass

Oh shit son! Marlon Wayans is returning to the realm of the horror spoof once again. However, its not any involvement with the 'Scary Movie' franchise that he and other Wayans brothers created back in 2000 but instead an entirely new parody called 'Smart Ass'. The new project which Wayans will co-direct himself alongside Mike Tiddes will specifically look to spoof 'found footage' horror flicks from recent years such as 'Paranormal Activity'. It's not a bad idea at all actually but let's hope it isn't as disappointing as many of Marlon's previous comedic efforts in the past few years such as the terrible 'LiTTLEMAN'. 'Are We There Yet?' and 'Half and Half' star Essence Atkins (below) has signed up to star in the project alongside Marlon and most likely a number of other Wayans family members. Atkins herself has worked previous with Wayans in

10 Films I Can Barely Believe Are Real…

In ‘celebration’ of the release of Adam Sandler’s latest comedy Jack & Jill (which is already out in the Us, alas UK readers will have to wait until February 3rd, but at least then you can take your loved ones to it on Valentine’s Day!), I thought I’d take a look at 10 other films I am baffled ever got the green light. I mean, watching the trailer for Jack & Jill one might think it was a deleted scene from the film Funny People in which Sandler mocked the kind of ridiculous high concept comedies that he is so often guilty of making. We thought after pushing them to extremes with spoof clips in that movie which included Sandler’s head magicked onto a baby’s body, it seemed like Sandler was both affectionately lampooning some of his early career decisions and also putting to rest that kind of

Hive Production Fund invests in three art films

The art film related Hive Production Fund has announced its first films to receive funding.

The Hive Production Fund was launched in February. The aim of the fund is for filmmakers and artists work on single art film projects.

The fund has received significant support. Originally set up between the ABC and Adelaide Film Festival, each contributing $200,000. The Australia Council came on board in July also donating $200,000.

An additional $70,000 has been committed by the Adelaide Film Festival through its Film Investment Fund.

Director of the Adelaide Film Festival Katrina Sedgwick said: “It is important the silos get broken down between film and the rest of the arts. The calibre of these projects and collaborators illustrate the potential for ground-breaking new work to be created for the screen when we facilitate new conversations between diverse practitioners and offer different funding avenues to enable these cross-pollinations.

Google's Barrel Roll rolls onto list of great pop culture rolls

Google's Barrel Roll rolls onto list of great pop culture rolls
You guys, I just can’t get enough. Yesterday, we all learned that typing “do a barrel roll” into Google would make your screen turn 360 degrees. And perhaps it’s because I’m nostalgic for the days of playing Star Fox on N64 in junior high, but I’m typing the phrase in Non. Stop. I am so easy amused and I need Pepto-Bismol. (Also: Way to distract those who hate Gmail change with something so awesome, Google!)

So, as we all sit here making ourselves nauseous, I find myself wondering, is this the greatest pop culture roll? (I also now find myself wondering,

Kerry Washington Confirmed for Django Unchained

After a few months of steady updates, it appears that all of the major roles have finally been cast for Quentin Tarantino's next film Django Unchained. This week we have confirmation that Kerry Washington has officially secured the role of Broomhilda, the female lead of the film. She is the wife of Django (Jamie Foxx), who is raped by three brothers while Django himself is brutalized and left for dead. Django is then eventually freed by a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) who helps him exact his revenge on the plantation owner and rescue Broomhilda. Tarantino reportedly had Washington in mind for the role from the start, but was also interested in potentially casting an unknown if he could find someone that was up to the task. Apparently he couldn't find anyone because he ended up coming back to Washington. It sounds like a potentially challenging role for Kerry Washington

Interview With Matthew Bate, the Director of ‘Shut Up Little Man!’

Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure is a great documentary. It succeeds because of its efforts to take two men who most viewed as caricatures, and introduce their human side. Thanks to the film they’re not just drunks with bad tempers, but they’re real people with a real relationship.

Matthew Bate is the man making his feature documentary debut with it, and I recently got the chance to ask him a few questions about the project via email. He had a lot to say about where the project came from, why they made some of the choices they did, and how Peter Haskett and Raymond Huffman stand against the world of the internet.

William Bitterman: Where did the idea for this film come from?

Matthew Bate: I read about how artists like Dan Clowes and Devo had used the recordings as inspiration for artwork and music.

Rewind – ‘Let Me In’ vs. ‘Let The Right One In’

Let Me In

Directed by Matt Reeves

vs. Let The Right One In

Directed by Tomas Alfredson

Even in a pop culture landscape littered with the bloodthirsty undead, Let The Right One In stood out as a poignant coming of age story as well as a bone-chilling horror film. The haunting mediation on the difficult and often painful transition into adolescence garnered much praise on the festival circuit in 2008. The film earned a loyal cult following through word of mouth and when Matt Reeves announced his American remake, those very same cinephiles lashed out in anger. The general consensus was, “why fix something that isn’t broken?”

Sadly, mainstream audiences seem to have a problem with subtitles, so it was inevitable that the film would be remade. That said, fans of the original should be grateful that Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), alongside legendary British horror brand Hammer Films (a studio that

Marlon Wayans To Create And Star In ABC Sibling Cop Comedy

Exclusive: Sixteen years after he co-created and starred in the WB comedy series The Wayans Bros, which ran for five seasons, Marlon Wayans is returning to broadcast TV with another comedy project about brothers, this time at ABC. Wayans will write, executive produce and star in a hybrid single/multi-camera comedy in development at the network that is produced by ABC Studios. The comedy, which has an odd couple/buddy cop comedy feel to it, centers on two brothers, both cops. Having fallen down on his luck, one of them moves in with his brother and his family. Wayans, who will play the married brother, is executive producing with his manager Lisa Blum and longtime producing partner Rick Alvarez of Wayans Bros Entertainment, Wayans’ production company with brothers Keenan Ivory and Shawn.
