While the original parodied slasher flicks like Scream, Keenen Ivory Wayans's sequel to Scary Movie takes comedic aim at haunted house movies. A group of students visit a mansion called "Hell House," and murderous high jinks ensue.

Such a frustrating disappointment


Simply A Masterpiece


It's funny, it's tense, it features two great performances from two actors and the director expertly creates a web of odd tension where you actually don't know what is happening for the majority of the run time.

Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.

This is equally as funny as the first, for those that criticise it for being dull or over the top, it's a spoof parodying horror films, it's not meant to be taken seriously in the slightest.The opening scenes, the parody of The Exorcist is one of the funniest things, I can no longer watch The Exorcist without picturing James Woods. There are so many funny moments I can pick out, Hanson's hand and the dinner, Ray and the Clown, but I can't help rewinding Cindy's scene with the cat, that's just too funny.I think this, like the first was such a great movie, but then they had so much material at the time to work with, so much to parody. Films recently seem so unoriginal, they continue to rehash old material, that's why I couldn't see this type of film working right now, perhaps that's why the fifth instalment was so poor.Not one for everyone, as it does manage to offend everyone, if you can take it for how it's meant, it's hilarious.


Scary Movie 2 is the 2001 sequel to the hilarious fun fest Scary Movie. The film parody's Titanic,The Exorcist and Poltergiest. It's about Cindy who now in college goes to a haunted house as a project for college only til not so scary entity's come out to kill one by one. Like the first film,an amazing hilarious laugh riot. Anna Faris was perfect as the idiot Cindy. The film spoofs a lot of good films that I really liked. Natasha Lyon made a guest appearance as Regan from the exorcist who I thought was really funny. The movie once again was directed by one of the Wayane brothers who I love as a director. Scary Movie 2 is a awesome hilarious astounding comedy spoof that you need to see if you love spoof films!!


This was coming off of streaming, which motivated me to give it a try. Frankly, I was expecting this to be way too juvenile to stomach, but I wound up being pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is crude and raunchy with strong teenager appeal, but it was also reasonably intelligent and quite entertaining, as long as you get the jokes and references. No way is anything like this ever going to win an Oscar, but some (most?) nights that's not what you are looking for anyway. This movie was perfectly fit for purpose, so, and I can't believe I'm doing this, I'm giving it a perfect ten.


Making a comedy that is funny because it is stupid is one of the hardest things to do. Because it can very easily just end up being stupid. Scary Movie 2 has none of the charm, laughs, and fun that the original provided. It might have something to do with that the main movie being parodied (The Haunting remake) wasn't even that good to begin with. Instead of poking fun of the genre in a hilarious over the top manner like the first one did, this film instead goes for gross out humor and various unfunny jokes. There are only so many times I can say "thats not funny" so I just leave it at this. Scary Movie 2 is not funny, its dumb, vile, and idiotic. Just watch the first one instead.
