He's no longer involved in that series, so he limited himself to making fun not of every modern "scary" movie, but just the
It's a "what if
And the "flava"? That's when Malcolm (Wayans) calls in his thug cousin and company to deal with the "demon" that moved in at the same time Kisha (Atkins) did.
Naturally, the thug's name is "Ray-Ray" (
"Cuz, where's your FURNITURE?" Ray-Ray wants to know, before it all tumbles from the ceiling on him and his homies. Yeah, you saw that in the TV commercials and trailers.
Cedric the Entertainer is a foul-mouthed priest who figures it would be easier to find a new girlfriend than to exorcise Kisha.
Wayans probably hasn't matured beyond snickering every time he said director Michael Tiddes' name aloud on the set. He's aged out of his manic years, but he hurls himself at the nudity, the simulated sex and what not. The night Kisha moves in, Malcolm vigorously practices, on camera, every sexual thing he wants to do with her with his collection of teddy bears. But Wayans hasn't given himself much that's new to play around with, protesting that "checking out" that noise downstairs "is what WHITE people do," insisting that people of his race "RUN" (and shout instructions to the character about to "check out that noise" on the screen).
Yeah, that joke is played. Taking flatulence gags to new levels and euphemisms for both characters being sexually violated by the ghost - "Touched by an Angel" and "Altar Boyed" - have an amusing shock value. The ghost's inability to spell
"I'll bet he spells 'BOO' 'O-O-B.'"
The funniest bit is Kisha's all-night sleepwalking dance routine (sped up as the scan through the video). The rest of "A Haunted House" you've pretty much seen if you watched the TV ads.
