Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Haunted House

Malcolm and Kisha are a young couple who are moving in together in a brand new house. Kisha thinks one day that their home is haunted; Malcolm is far more concerned by the fact that he can't sleep due to Kisha's constant disgusting flatulence in the middle of the night. Still, to appease his loved one, he hires men to come install security cameras all around the house to see if they can catch any paranormal activity. However, Malcolm is only interested in recording himself making love to Kisha. Yet when watching the tape back, he notices the bedroom door move by itself; Kisha feels this is proof the haunting is real, but Malcolm still is skeptical. Once Malcolm finally notices paranormal behavior himself, he hires a psychic to try to help. The psychic provides little help, mostly due to his constant sexual interest in Malcolm, but he does help reveal that Kisha has been possessed since she was a child. That night, Kisha starts walking around and behaving strangely, not remembering what she did the next morning. Things seem to be working themselves out, as one night Malcolm and Kisha do drugs with the presence in the house, but after Malcolm is sexually assault by the spirit one night, he calls Father Doug, and they must rid Kisha of this spirit once and for all, before their marriage is ruined.

Best part of story, including ending: Non-stop lewd humor, with no real wit or story line behind it. No laughs from a comedy standpoint, no scares from a horror standpoint. No real reason to ever see this film.

Best scene in story: Essence Atkins is a gifted comedic actress, and during her possession, she gets the occasional moment to showcase her physical comedy skills. However, it's still not enough to merit seeing this comedy.

Opinion about the main character: Malcolm hates women, he hates homosexuals, and he hates his girlfriend's family. He is also played by Marlon Wayans, so as you watch, you know that he is responsible for the waste of your time, which makes you hate the character even more.
