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

Trivia: Shannon Elizabeth plays Buffy who is based on Sarah Michelle Gellar's characters in I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) hence Buffy (from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997), of course). (more)

Goofs: Revealing mistakes: When Cindy rescues her dad in the kitchen, he lets go of the handcuffs and you can see that they weren't actually buckled up. (more)

Cindy's Dad: I thought I heard screaming in here!
Cindy Campbell: No, no daddy.
