What Happened to Tom in Scary Movie 4?

If you’re a fan of horror-comedy movies, you might have watched Scary Movie 4. The movie is known for its parody of popular horror movies and its hilarious take on them.

However, there is one scene in the movie that left many viewers confused and wondering what happened to Tom. Let’s take a closer look.

The Scene

The scene in question takes place towards the end of the movie when Cindy Campbell, the main character played by Anna Faris, is investigating a creepy house. Tom, played by Craig Bierko, accompanies her on this mission. As they enter the house, they discover a mysterious room with an old TV set playing a creepy video.

What Happened to Tom?

As Cindy watches the video, she realizes that it’s a cursed tape that causes anyone who watches it to die within seven days. Suddenly, she notices that Tom has disappeared. She searches for him but finds no trace of him until she hears his voice coming from the TV set.

Tom’s Fate

It’s then revealed that Tom was sucked into the TV set and is now trapped inside it. He appears on-screen as part of the cursed tape and starts talking to Cindy through the TV screen. The scene ends with Cindy breaking the TV set and freeing Tom from his curse.

The Parody

The scene is a parody of the horror movie The Ring, where watching a cursed videotape results in death after seven days. In The Ring, one of the characters also gets trapped inside a well after watching the tape.


So there you have it – that’s what happened to Tom in Scary Movie 4! Although it was a funny take on The Ring’s plotline, it still left many viewers scratching their heads in confusion. But now you know – Tom was sucked into a cursed TV set and was trapped inside it until Cindy rescued him.
