A Horror Spoof Duel No One Asked For

Scary Movie Poster 560x443

Way back in 2000, the Wayans Brothers and Dimension Pictures teamed up for a movie that very few people thought was going to be a hit. As a matter of fact, it was delayed a few times before even being allowed in theaters. The movie was called Scary Movie. Interestingly enough, Scary Movie was the original title of the movie Scream which was one of the principle movies that Scary Movie was parodying.

Eventually, the movie (which advertised “no sequels” became a franchise) franchise sputtered out. So, Dimension got rid of the Wayans Brothers involvement in their own films and brought in the team who brought you Airplane! The result was a whole lot less African-American involvement and actors such as Charlie Sheen and Leslie Nielson. Since then, Nielson passed away and Sheen became known for hilarious drug-fueled rampages about wizards and tiger blood. Now Dimension pictures is attempting to hit the well again with Sheen and Scary Movie 5.
