Horror spoofs are a tad played out, thanks in large part to five Scary Movie films, including at least four that were completely awful.
That said, if anyone can send up the horror genre in an original and hilarious way, it's former members of the sketch group The State, creators of Reno 911, and writers of the Night at the Museum movies, Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon.
Check out the first trailer for the pair's new horror comedy, Hell Baby:
Rob Corddry (Warm Bodies) and Leslie Bibb star as Jack and Vanessa, an expectant couple who move into a notorious haunted mansion in New Orleans. When Vanessa is possessed by a demon, they call upon a pair of exorcists (played by Garant and Thomas) to prevent her from giving birth to a demonic baby.
Keegan Michael Key (Role Models), Riki Lindhome, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel also star.
Hell Baby can be downloaded on iTunes July 25, and will hit theaters September 6.
