Last night Thursday (January 10), actor Marlon Wayans premiered his funny/horror movie A Haunted House which he stars in for a group of selected journalists, bloggers and industry insiders at the AMC movie theater on 34th Street in Manhattan, followed by a private reception at The Time Hotel on West 49th Street and I was in attendance. The event was spearheaded by 135th Agency. During the reception, Marlon talked about the making of the film and what critics may have to say. “I didn’t make this film for the critics,” said Wayans. He added, “I made it for you…the fans. This film gave me an opportunity to do what I wanted to do without someone trying to reel me in.” He also answered a lot of questions during the Q&A as well as told some pretty cool jokes.
“Marlon Wayans, the comic genius creator of Scary Movie and White Chicks, delivers another hilarious spoof, this time taking aim at the found footage horror phenomenon.When overactive man-child Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) takes the plunge and lets girlfriend Keisha (Essence Atkins) move into his house, he quickly senses they’re no longer alone. Videotaping a series of paranormal events, Malcolm is shocked to discover the love of his life carries more than your average relationship baggage: she’s demonically possessed by an evil spirit. Malcolm enlists the help of priest/ex-convict Father Williams (Cedric the Entertainer) to exorcise the demon from his girlfriend before it ruins his relationship… AND his sex life.”
A HAUNTED HOUSE is in theaters now!
