Remember when Scary Movie came out, made a bunch of money, and invaded the zeitgeist?  Well Marlon Wayans hopes you do, as the first trailer for his new Paranormal Activity spoof A Haunted House has landed online.  It’s looks exactly like you’d expect it to, but there are one or two chuckles sprinkled in between the fart jokes and screaming.  The film tackles the “found footage” craze, most prominently spoofing Paranormal Activity and The Devil Inside.  I’m interested to see if these kinds of comedies even appeal to moviegoers anymore.  Will audiences show up or have the endless Scary Movie sequels killed the horror spoof genre that the Wayans brothers practically invented?

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Directed by Michael Tiddes (Dance Flick), the film also stars Essence Atkins, David Koechner, Nick Swardson, and Cedric the EntertainerA Haunted House opens on January 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for A Haunted House:

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 rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.
