David Koechner knows a thing or two about being funny. The man who had his fair share of Anchorman quotes is back in Marlon Wayans' A Haunted House. Koechner appears in the spoof of the Paranormal Activity movies alongside Wayans, Essence Atkins, Cedric the Entertainer and Affion Crockett.
Crockett and Koechnor sat down with Movie Fanatic for an exclusive video interview where both talk about the freeing nature of a Wayans shoot and how if you aren't doing improv... you could actually get in trouble for following the script!
"You weren't allowed to go off the script," Koechner said.
"Yeah, they cracked the whip," Crockett added. "They'd be like, 'Did you just do a line from the script? What is wrong with you?'"
Although this is a spoof film, that also parodies other found footage films like The Devil Inside, there are still some scary moments -- as one can easily tell from our exclusive A Haunted House trailer. When we ask these two funny guys what terrifies them... their answers reflect the nature of the entire movie: Scary meets silly. "I fear the I.R.S.," Crockett said as Koechner laughed.
As for Koechner? "The thought of supernatural things scare me," he said. "That is scary!"
