Scary Movie movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Not at all! Scary Movie is a funny but shockingly crude comedy, with plenty of killings if you find that scary. But the movie is a comedic parody of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.


A year after teenaged Cindy Campbell and her dumb friends accidentally kill a man and dispose his body, they are stalked by a threatening but stupid serial killer who tries to kill them all.

Aussie boy's thoughts

It’s really hard trying to adjust back to reality after cackling with laughter at the crudeness of this silly-as-heck parody movie. Seriously, you’d better be in the mood for stupid amusement to be able to enjoy Scary Movie, a foolish comedy with dope characters and shocking humour. But the film is not only crude and funny; it’s shocking.

If you’re gonna watch this dumb spoof, you’d better be ready to take everything you see in it as a complete joke. Scary Movie is honestly a really fun way to escape your stress for an hour and a half. So sit back, relax and enjoy watching: A bunch of idiots running around getting murdered, partying, and doing some really silly junk. Yes, junk! Everything in this movie is filthy, crude, messy and very inappropriate. But the film’s momentum is really either terrible, satisfactory or great.

So please, don’t take Scary Movie seriously. It’s pointless, but it’s also a really great parody of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. To fans of parodies, comedies, and movies with stupid characters, this laugh-stock is for you… maybe…
