The only thing that rivals the horror genre's ever-steady stream of blood and guts is its never-ending amount of material that is ripe for ridicule. No films have even come close to successfully spoofing the genre as those in the Scary Movie series. Initially spawned from the minds of the Wayans brothers, Keenan Ivory & company have passed the franchise torch to director Malcolm Lee (The Best Man, Undercover Brother) and writer David Zucker (the legendary Airplane! and Naked Gun spoof series), who also wrote and directed the third and fourth Scary Movie films.
The latest installment, Scary Movie 5, includes send-ups of recent horror hits such as Paranormal Activity, Mama, Sinister and The Evil Dead, as well as other pop culture sensations like Inception and Black Swan. It also has a star-studded cast of epic proportions, featuring the likes of Ashley Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Snoop Dogg, Katt Williams, Molly Shannon, Terry Crews, Simon Rex, Jerry O'Connell, Sarah Hyland, Katrina Bowden, Tyler Posey, Shad Moss aka Bow Wow, Kate Walsh, Heather Locklear, Mac Miller, and Mike Tyson. That's practically half of Hollywood showing up to take part in the hilarity.
