Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Along comes Marlon Wayans to do in A Haunted House what he once did in Scary Movie. And do it much, much worse."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"You might chuckle at Wayans huddled in the tub, frantically trying to scrub himself clean of something slightly more earthly-freaky than evil spirits. But watching him get it on with stuffed animals? Ick."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"Neither worthy of my laughter nor capable of inducing sleep. No, this is one of those rare films where its badness turns the cogs of your brain."
‑ Russell Hainline, Movie Mezzanine
"Frustratingly, there's actually talent on-screen that hints at what could have been a cleverly comical take on the found-footage genre."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"There's just an odd recurrence of homophobic humor in the entire movie that compensates for lack of actual humor."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A movie that offends every moral sensibility but delivers few comedic rewards."
‑ Josh Tapper, Toronto Star
"There are vague hints that the story is "really" about the difficulties and anxiety of commitment, but then one of many variations on a fart joke distracts from any actual idea."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"A Haunted House is technically inept, monotonous, and stiflingly cheap-looking. How this cost $2.5 million dollars to produce is beyond me."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"Heck, worse films starring Robert De Niro have been released this year."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"This send up of the Paranormal Activity films provides a few laughs here and there, but for the most part its crude and clichéd script is ridiculously stupid, embarrassingly over the top and occasionally offensive."
‑ Jennifer Tate, ViewLondon
"Does it even qualify as a movie? Why did it take two people to write and cost $2.5 million to make?"
‑ Sherilyn Connelly, Village Voice
"If the opening gag in your R-rated movie is an extended flatulence joke you should reconsider whether you're qualified to make such a movie."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Too banal to be offensive, it's certainly one to miss"
‑ James Luxford, The National
"Yet another spoof from Wayans and Alvarez, this movie isn't nearly as bad as it could have been (they also produced the resolutely unfunny Scary Movie 2 and Dance Flick)."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"This Haunted House needs a KEEP OUT sign nailed to the door."
‑ Eddie Harrison, The List
