A Haunted House (2013)
Copied from my Netflix "review": You really need to watch Paranormal Activity before watching this movie, as it directly spoofs it (along with some others like The Devil Inside towards the end). Another reviewer panned this movie on grounds that there are only really two characters throughout. Well, so it is with PA, too. Haunted House hyperbolizes such absurdities as the big deal made over the keys on the kitchen floor in PA. I do concede that a lot of the humor is juvenile, but for the most part this should provide a fun time for people familiar with its target movie. To approach it as a standalone, true comedy and not a direct parody will probably not yield the best experience.
