|Why can't we have killers who lighten up like him?|
One night, eighteen year-old Drew receives a threatening phone call while home alone and finds a homicidal "Ghostface" on the prowl with singer Prince tied up next to her pool. After running around the house, Drew meets her demise (and lost a boob implant) at the end of the killer's knife no soon after being ran over by her parent's car. I'm guessing she would had survived this if she chose the gun instead of that banana...
|I'm thinking grenade, but that's a little too easy...|
The next day, Cindy Campbell meets up with her boyfriend Bobby Prinze and her friends, Brenda Meeks, Ray Wilkins, Greg Phillipe, and Buffy Gilmore. We also have reporter Gail Hailstorm covering Drew's death to get that sweet limelight and she plans on flirting with Buffy's mentally disabled deputy brother Doofy to milk out any more facts. Doesn't really add up, but then again, so does the rest of the movie.
|I can't decide if she's too smart for the killer or just...ugh|
Not too long though, the killer begins stalking Cindy's friends, leaving death threats concerning something they've done last Summer when they accidentally killed a man during a wild car ride. Now in danger, they must find a way to defend themselves from Ghostface or (dumbly) die trying. Over and over and over and over and over and over again...
Taking the comedic styles from classic like the Airplane! and Hot Shots! movies, Scary Movie (2000) is, in its insulting way, a refreshing return to spoof movies. It stands out from the usual parody comedies by going beyond the tame and the sane (for its time), tackling not only the bodycounting sub-genre or horror in general but also low-brows gays, the disabled, fart jokes, transsexuals, commercials, and just about anything that would make politically correct mothers vein-pops-out angry.
|She's so stupid, she doesn't even know she's dead...|
