A new spoof is on the way, this time taking on the Paranormal Activity franchise and other found footage types, which is titled A Haunted House.
The movie stars Marlon Wayans, who was part of the first two Scary Movie flicks (the only two worth watching) trying to recapture some of that absurdly silly R-rated parody magic.
Whether he’ll achieve that goal or if the movie will end up in the massive pile of mind-bogglingly awful spoof movies we’ve seen over the past decade or so remains to be seen. For now, you can watch the Red Band trailer for the movie below. NSFW warning in effect after this point.
The digital movie rental deal of the day over at Amazon today is 30 Minutes Or Less available for rent for $.99.
Once you activate the rental through Amazon’s Instant Demand service, you’ll have access to the movie for 24 hours. If you’re interested in purchasing the digital version, the cost is $14.99. The movie is also available on DVD and Blu-ray.
30 Minutes or Less Directed by Ruben Fleischer
Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson, Aziz Ansari, Michael Pena, Fred Ward, Bianca Kajlich, Dilshad Vadsaria
Release Date: August 12, 2011
Director Ruben Fleischer has a variety of unorthodox ways to evoke action, rampage, and chaos. After only two feature-length films (first being Zombieland) we can see that his forte may already be established and that his vision has become distorted by things that go boom. Innumerable are his whacked out and distinct ideas that somehow and some way get made into a film that either succeeds or misses the mark somewhat. Refer to Zombieland, in which that film sufficiently mapped out and exhibited more than a dozen extravagant ways to execute an approaching zombie.
His approach to 30 Minutes or Less is even more chaotic yet less coherent and blatantly contrived. The lack of regard for more details that he displays here (this deficiency can be attributed to the 83–minute run time) may represent his inability to structure a fully believable tale that consists of mindless individuals in incomparable circumstances.
Perhaps the funniest panel of this year’s Comic–Con, 30 Minutes or Less was part of Sony’s presentation and featured director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and stars Aziz Ansari, Nick Swardson, and Michael Pena.
The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg as a pizza boy who runs into a couple of criminal types (Swardson and Danny McBride) who decide to strap a bomb to his chest and force him to rob a bank for them, forcing him to go to his best friend (Ansari) for help.
