Scary Movie 2

Summary

“Four teens are tricked by Professor Oldman (Tim Curry) into visiting a haunted house for a school project” I feel like this summary doesn’t even come close to explaining what the movie is actually about

So this is my second video for ‘Girl in Media’ hope you guys like this one, because it was really fun to make.

Characters, Cast, Crew

Scary movie 2 was originally realised on the 4th July 2001, in my opinion this is the most iconic movie out the 5 movie series. The director Keenen Ivory Wayans also directoted the first scary movie, and happens to be the brother of Shawn and Marlon Wayans, who played Ray and Shorty in the movie. These two brothers also had a part in writing the script.

Firstly talking about Anna Faris’s character Cindy, to point it plaining I feel she’s stupid (Not kinda of stupid, really stupid) but that’s what I love about about the Scary Movie franchise. They create obviously stupid characters and put them in over obvious scenarios, but by the the end of the movie we have grown to love them. This is one of my favourite characters that Anna Faris has potrayed.

Another character that always gets me is Hanson, the caretaker. Chris Elliot who plays him did an extraordianry job. He is one of those actors that you know he’s face but can’t place him in just one thing. Though he looks very different in real life (of course) he has had many minor roles in some major shows including; That 70’s Show, Futurama, How I Met Your Mother, Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Schitt’s Creek.

Trivia

Below I’ll be sharing some of the most intersting facts I found from the movie

  • At one point, former President Bill Clinton, who had left office the year this movie came out, was considered for the role of Father McFeely.
  • Regina Hall’s character died in the first Scary Movie (2001) , but yet her character returns in this one and the one after
  • Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears both turned down the role of Megan Voorhees
  • According to Tori Spelling, her character, Alex Monday, was originally one of the leads. However, after refusing to do a scene where she had to be topless, Dimension Films cut her out of more than half the movie. After that, her role was simply known as a “cameo”, even though she was originally in 3/4 of this movie.
