Universal Studio sent me A Haunted House Blu-ray Combo Pack for review on my movie blog. The film is a parody that makes fun of the Paranormal Activity movies. It stars Marlon Wayans, and is about a young couple that lives in a house that is haunted by a demon. If you have seen other parodies, then you know how these types of movies are like. At times, it’s funny. Other times, it’s stupid. A Haunted House is available now on Blu-ray and DVD. Read on for the full review.
Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, two readers of my dad blog will each win a DVD. The title of the DVD is 30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Long movie name, right? As you can tell by the title, the film is a parody of multiple films. You can spook yourself silly with 30 Nights of Paranormal Activity on Blu-ray and DVD on January 15th.
I found this book at the library: Nightlight: A Parody by The Harvard Lampoon ($10.04). When I brought it home, my wife started jumping up and down because she thought I checked out a new Twilight book. And then I read the back cover to her:
About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him – which I assumed was wildly out of his control – that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me. And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight. Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events (Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch and then Edwart saves her from a flying snowball) Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive? Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.
