Overview

This sequel to a box-office sleeper hit that spoofed teen slasher flicks takes its cues from haunted house and possession films, particularly The Haunting 1999 and The Exorcist 1973. Although many of the first film's main characters were homicide victims, Marlon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, and Anna Faris return anyway to "re-possess" their roles for this follow-up in which four students are invited by their professor Tim Curry to his haunted mansion, Hell House, for a weekend sleep-deprivation study. Providing the sleep deprivation, however, is a series of murderous, supernatural goings-on. Scary Movie 2 co-stars Tori Spelling, Andy Richter, Christopher Masterson, Kathleen Robertson, James Woods, Chris Elliott, and Natasha Lyonne.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
It's obvious Scary Movie 2 was cobbled together quickly after the surprise success of the original, hitting theaters less than a year later and containing of-the-moment parodies that must have been inserted just weeks beforehand. As if it matters, there's little in the way of plot propelling this variety show approach to puerile gags. Only a little less so than the original, the sequel oozes preternatural crassness and grossness, most frequently in the form of projectile bodily fluids -- Exorcist-style vomit, parrot feces, and other unmentionable excretions. But yes, there are laughs in there too, just not enough for this to exceed the status of a sloppy cash cow for Miramax, eager for its share of the summer box office. The actors are basically agreeable, with Anna Faris reprising her nimble pratfalling from the original, James Woods going surprisingly lowbrow, and 90210 alums Tori Spelling and Kathleen Robertson vamping up a storm. Keenen Ivory Wayans knows how to seek out and stab the most familiar parts of our popular consciousness, from Charlie's Angels to The Weakest Link to that Nike ad with the percussive basketball dribbling and shoe squeaking. There's just little thought given to turning them into something coherent. Scary Movie 2 is light on genuine knee-slappers and minutes of film stock (a scant 82), but those who liked the original shouldn't be overly disappointed.
Washington Post - Michael O'Sullivan
It's a lot more tightly focused than the first outing, and for fans of the demented comedy of Elliott and Cross, or the thespian chops of Woods (a last-minute replacement for an ailing Marlon Brando), it's worth putting up with humor that's the filmic equivalent of a big, spit-soaked raspberry.
