Beginning with the murder of a beautiful high school classmate, a group of misguided teenagers discover there is a killer amongst them. Heroine Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris) and her friends, including Buffy (Shannon Elizabeth), Brenda (Regina Hall), Bobby (Jon Abrahams), Greg (Lochlyn Munro), Shorty (Marlon Wayans) and Ray (Shawn Wayans), must protect themselves from danger and that irritating reporter Gail Hailstorm (Cheri Oteri) who won't leave them alone!
As the story unfolds a series of gruesome and hilarious surprises blow the lid off the expected plot twists. The film parodies classic scenes from SCREAM, THE SIXTH SENSE, THE MATRIX, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.
SCARY MOVIE is more than a parody of one type of entertainment; it's all sorts of comedies rolled into one: a sex comedy, a youthful comedy, a comedic thriller and more.
