Director Keenen Ivory Wayans lampoons 1990s teenage horror movies (including Scream and The Blair Witch Project) here, which seems a bit of a redundant exercise when you consider that Scream was itself a dig at the horror genre. Luckily, Wayans and family (among the writers are his brothers Shawn and Marlon, who also star) get some good laughs along the way. The film includes in-jokes and send-ups of Dawson's Creek and I Know What You Did Last Summer, plus a superb skit on The Matrix that will have fans chuckling. You won't remember the plot five minutes after you've watched it, but you'll certainly continue smiling at the rude and lewd daftness of it all.

Plot Summary

Horror spoof starring Shannon Elizabeth and Anna Faris that sends up classic moments from films such as Scream, The Blair Witch Project and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Following their involvement in the death of a man in a road accident, a group of students at BA Corpse High School find themselves targeted by a crazed killer.
