Synopsis


Scary Movie
After parodying the blaxploitation films of the 1970s in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Keenen Ivory Wayans takes aim at slasher films of the 1980s and 1990s in this raunchy satire, which was produced under the clumsy but inarguably appropriate title Scream If You Know What I Did Last Halloween. As you might expect, a group of teenagers -- not-terribly-bright Buffy (Shannon Elizabeth), her best friend Brenda (Regina Hall), stoner Shorty (Marlon Wayans), fey football player Ray (Shawn Wayans), loudmouthed Greg (Lochlyn Munro), sexually overexcited Bobby (Jon Abrahams), and his prim girlfriend Cindy (Anna Faris) -- are on the run from a maniacal killer who is looking for revenge after the kids accidentally kill a man following an auto accident. They also find themselves having to contend with intrusive reporter Gail Hailstorm (Cheri Oteri) and eccentric high school principal Squiggly (David L. Lander). Incidentally, the title Scary Movie is something of an inside joke: it was the working title for Scream, the movie that kick-started the mid-'90s slasher film revival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    One of the better spoofs out there

    Scary Movie was the first film in a new wave of send-up films that, thanks to two of this film's writers, have now degraded to the point of the latest of the genre, such as Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Meet the Spartans. Those films are monstrous abberations and are completely unfunny, but Scary Movie does succeed in being humorous a good portion of the time. The plot is a direct copy of the first Scream film (ironically itself a satire of the slasher genre, created by Wes Craven, who has characterized much of the slasher genre since it was first created), in which a group of teens are being stalked by a knife-wielding killer in a black cloak and white ghost mask. This film also mocks another slasher film of the same year, I Know What You did Last Summer, so this film includes a sub-plot lifted from that film in which the killer is aware that the teens killed in a drunk driving incident (sort of, in this case) and subsequetly covered up for their own sake. The plot isn't the point here. The plot is just the loose framework upon which jokes are hung, and some of them, though FREQUENTLY crude, are actually quite funny, and the Wayans Brothers (Keenan Ivory Wayans directs and his brothers Marlon and Shawn act) successfully give the slasher genre a good grilling. They even find some time to poke fun at a few other things on the side, and the ending is a pretty fun, if totally non-sensical parody of The Usual Suspects. I don't recommend this to anyone who hates crude or simple-minded comedy, but if you like stupid humor, this will likely work for you.

    this was fun, mildly offensive (and i say that in reverence) parody of the recent slasher-lite/slasher parody/slasher homages of that time (and a few others, as well). one note about the Blu-ray, however, while it's usually better than the DVD in picture quality, it's one of the worst discs i've seen. i've never seen details not just poor, but outright smeared-looking in places. i can't figure out how to even describe it. maybe like a Photoshop paint filter? also present is haloing from poorly supervised edge enhancement. (screenshots are not indicative of the *entire* movie's PQ, just some of the worse scenes)

    The Wayans have out done themselves

    At first glance I didn't think I would like this movie, I mean come on, a comedy featuring the lesser funnier Wayans (Shawn and Marlon). I didn't think it would be funny at all, good thing I was wrong. This movie showed why they are the first family of comedy.

    The first and best film in the series, this one manages to touch on the then-current horror film tropes in an amusing way, even touching on other pop culture material of the time. Holds up fairly well on the re-watch.

    If you enjoy spoof films, then you probably already own this one.
