"[N]o cliché is spared as every post-ironic horror movie worth the name gets put through the mangle at exhausting speed..."
Keenen Ivory Wayans (I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA) directs this hysterical spoof of slasher films. Targeting, most specifically, HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH, SCREAM, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, and THE SIXTH SENSE, SCARY MOVIE also mocks other genre films such as THE MATRIX. After turning his attention to dramas for a series of movies, Wayans's return to comedies contains a seemingly endless onslaught of visual jokes.
