Our Score
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.

Summary

A ghost-masked killer, reminiscent of the villain in the Scream films, stalks a group of teenagers, who go to ever more ridiculous extremes to avoid death. Spoof horror, which lampoons blockbusters such as The Blair Witch Project, I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Matrix. With Anna Faris, Carmen Electra, Shannon Elizabeth, Jon Abrahams and Shawn and Marlon Wayans.
