"A Haunted House 2" Reviewed

Marlon Wayans -the charming one

Marlon Wayans a funny guy with an elastic face, a penchant for slapstick, and as one of the Wayan Brothers. the funny in his DNA. He can do stand up and he can do movies, and in “A Haunted House 2” he does both. Always front and center throughout the 80 minute “Paranormal Activity” found footage center, he takes on horror movies like “Insideous” though he doesn’t do much em.

Wayans and  girlfriend Megan (Jaime Pressly) plus her two children (Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins) move to a haunted house with a creepy doll a la Twilight Zone has a sexual relationship with Damon (no really, very yucky), the teen daughter is such a slut she has a penis in her throat (no really, very yucky) and some demon wanders around from a Shining type friend for the boy to the doll to a box.

None of itt is very good, and some of it is quite nasty, but there are worst ways to spend 90 minutes and while the movie just keeps going till it fizzles out, at least it keeps on going. Lots of violence, lota nasty talk, lotsa race stereotyping (Spanish, Black and especially white) and thorough it all Marlon is an oddly gentle figure in the middle of the mayhem. By the end, enough is enough is enough and it lost its grip completely

The best thing about it all? Shinobi Ninja’s “Amped To 2” at the closing credits. A typical piece of SN bang and pop, scratch, rap and roar.

Hey, it might not be much of a movie but I’ll take the soundtrack!

Grade: C
