Scary Movie 2 (2001)

Oh, woah, is that Andy Richter? The most surprising guest appearance in this series yet! I'm not sure I knew who he was the first time I saw this movie - I haven't followed the Conan O'Brien show that long. Sugar Ray's music plays in the intro too, which much like the Bad Meets Evil music in the outro on the former gives me a great first impression (last time it was a lasting impression)!

Movie references this time? There's Rosemary's Baby, Lord of The Flies and The Exorcist all within the first five minutes, and later on Dude Where's My Car, that basketball commercial from back in the day, Silence of The Lambs, Charlie's Angels, Hollow Man, Mission Impossible, and let's not forget the more notable horrors:

  • The Faculty
  • The Haunting
  • The Amityville Horror
  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show
  • The Changeling
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Poltergeist
  • Pet Sematary
  • What Lies Beneath
  • Little Shop of Horrors
  • The House on Haunted Hill
  • Thirteen Ghosts

A bit more than the last one! If I didn't miss too many of them last time. The movie also has a most awesome door knocker, and tons of comedy in style with the first, much of it crude and sexual, though it's more silly than crude, with plenty of harmless jokes to balance it out. Whereas the last one was a parody on a horror movie parody, this one's more of a horror movie parody too. It had some pretty creepy stuff mixed in with the comicals, and grand special effects. All in all a great movie, and as for the plot: it's about a haunted house. Mostly.

It's a direct sequel to the first movie too. The same kind of crazy, with a bit more creative effects. They loop back on certain elements from the first, introducing the story the same way (much like the Scream franchise), with an intro, and the school, and the story, and then back to where it all began. Most of the main characters from the last movie make a re-appearance, and of course there's that one final scene that changes everything. Nicely done.

 rated 3/5: not bad
