movie cover

A farce about horror movies. A year after disposing the body of a man they accidentally killed, a group of dumb teenagers is stalked by a bumbling serial killer.

Qvamp says:

A horribly dumb movie that was a spoof of about 3 horror movies (apparently that was all the director ever saw), but references a couple of others. Queers were represented often, though not in a positive light.

We are looking for a copy of this. If you own one and want to get rid of it, let us know!

2000 could be known as 'The Year of the Parodies.' First, word was spread that there was going to be a really funny horror movie spoof starring Julie Benz from Jawbreaker and featuring legendary Tiffany Amber Thiessen from the immortal '80s TV High school sit-com, Saved by The Bell.

But, that spoof would be cast down by the Wayans Bros. when they decided to make a spoof of their own. Along comes Scary Movie. And teens everywhere drooled in their pants for an opportunity to see another sex, drug, and bodily fluid comedy.

Having very little to do with horror movies, the film just copies the settings from the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer movies and mixes them with more nasty sex, drug, and bodily fluid humor. The audience got just what they were promised.

Though the movie was dominantly wretched, it can't be written off completely for two reasons. First of all, some of the verbal jokes are very funny. You can count them all... 4 at best. The movie does however have a very positive outlook on homosexuality in general. By portraying it not as a struggle to figure things out, but nonchalantly as a discovery and makes light of it instead of fun of it.

Characters are gay and normal. And gay jokes are evenly spread into the repertoire of topics covered. Don't think this warrants viewing the film. If you're at Blockbuster... or wherever, and you see this film in the same section as you'd find Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th... take my advice and rent Shriek!
