If there’s one thing the Wayans brothers know how to get right (and there are many), it’s comedy. And with Marlon Wayans in particular, comedy spoofs.

Co-written by and starring Wayans, A Haunted House is a found-footage horror comedy taking Paranormal Activity as its jumping off point, and with the January release beckoning, the first trailer has debuted over at Yahoo Movies.

“Young couple Malcolm and Kisha 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.”

Wayans stars alongside Essence Atkins, Nick Swardson, Cedric the Entertainer, David Koechner, and Dave Sheridan, with director Michael Tiddes making his feature debut, directing from a script penned by Wayans and Rick Alvarez, also making his feature debut.

A Haunted House will be released in the US on 11th January, 2013. No word yet on if/when it will arrive in the UK, but with Wayans being a big name on our shores as well, hopefully it will be landing at roughly the same time. For now, here’s the first trailer to give you a taste of the horror/comedy in store. Can’t help but love Nick Swardson.
