An obscene parody of horror films that executes with laughter and dark humor. The Wayans Bros. team up to bring their parody-filled skills to the world of horror and suspenseful cinema. And may I say it's so hysterical, that it's scary! 4.5/5

However difficult it may be to accept, the Scary Movie franchise is about as good as spoof films get nowadays. This one in particular isn't much better than its long row of sequels, but it does have enough fun moments to be considered worthwhile. Just don't expect any laugh-out-l...
