Movie Info

From the minds that brought you "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka," "In Living Color" and "Don't Be A Menace In South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood" comes a thriller-comedy (a thrill-comedy, if you will) that is guaranteed to shock. In this raucous comedy spoof of recent horror films, not even "The Blair Witch Project" or "The Sixth Sense" has been spared.

Critic Reviews for Scary Movie

All Critics (117) | Top Critics (35)

These gags are hardly the height of inspiration, but it could be that people laugh at them because they're not as pathetic as a character having a penis jabbed through his head like an ice pick.

Top Critic

The Wayans brothers just want to make us laugh... And for the first 20 minutes, they do. After that the gag-rate plummets, and it's a long haul to the credits.

October 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The kind of thing that leads to sleepless nights -- from severely bruised rib cages.

October 10, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4

The air of desperation is emphasised by the insistence on padding out horror-movie gags with crude Farrelly-style humour.

December 2, 2002 | Full Review…

There's energy and glee in the movie, as if the Wayans brothers were still little boys, desperately working to out-gross each other. Naughty little boys and girls everywhere, even those who have officially grown up, will appreciate their commitment.

March 22, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4

Would it be asking too much if the hit-and-miss jokes could maybe nudge an inch beyond the obvious?

Audience Reviews for Scary Movie


Scream was already a smart parody that made fun of horror movie conventions and clichés, so this silly (yet sometimes funny) spoof feels pretty pointless and shoots in every direction to see if it hits (even The Matrix gets thrown in the mix), but it has more misses than hits.

This afternoon, I finally watched this movie through from beginning to end. You know what...I did not laugh once. This movie is just ridiculous. How in the world can such a stupid movie, make so much money at the box office? Are we all without minds in this world? This movie is a complete ripoff of Scream (which it parodies), and all other of the newer 90's style horror movies. Hollywood must really be hurting for ideas if a movie this terrible could actually be made. If you want to laugh, watch one of Mel Brooks' parodies, or the Monty Python films, or even The Pink Panther movies. These are true comedies. This is just a sick and twisted, incoherent movie with absolutely nothing funny in it. Now excuse me while I go and dust off my copy of Beverly Hills Cop, and watch a real entertaining, funny movie. 1/2 star 1-17-01 (Updated)

An obscene parody of horror films that executes with laughter and dark humor. The Wayans Bros. team up to bring their parody-filled skills to the world of horror and suspenseful cinema. And may I say it's so hysterical, that it's scary! 4.5/5
