What Movies Are Being Spoofed in Scary Movie 2?

If you’re a fan of horror movies and you also enjoy a good laugh, then Scary Movie 2 is likely to have been on your list of must-see movies. This 2001 spoof comedy film takes a satirical look at the horror genre, and includes plenty of references to popular horror movies from the past.

So, just what movies are being spoofed in Scary Movie 2? Let’s take a closer look.

The Exorcist

One of the most memorable scenes in Scary Movie 2 is the parody of The Exorcist. In this spoof, Cindy Campbell (played by Anna Faris) becomes possessed by a demon and begins to spew green vomit all over Father McFeely (played by James Woods). The scene also includes references to other famous moments from The Exorcist, such as the spinning head and the use of religious artifacts to combat the demon.


Another classic horror movie that gets spoofed in Scary Movie 2 is Poltergeist. The scene takes place when Cindy and her friends are investigating strange occurrences in a haunted house. One character gets sucked into a television set – just like in Poltergeist – while another is attacked by creepy clowns that come to life.

The Haunting

The Haunting is another movie that gets parodied in Scary Movie 2. In this scene, Cindy and her friends are exploring a creepy mansion that’s said to be haunted.

When they arrive at the mansion, they meet a caretaker named Hanson (played by Chris Elliott) who warns them about the dangers inside. Of course, they don’t listen and soon find themselves being chased by ghosts.

The Amityville Horror

The Amityville Horror is yet another movie that’s given the Scary Movie treatment. In this scene, Cindy and her friends move into a haunted house that’s said to be cursed.

The house is filled with strange noises, and the walls bleed on their own. There’s also a nod to the famous shot of the house with glowing eyes in the windows.


Overall, Scary Movie 2 is a hilarious take on some of the most iconic horror movies from the past. Whether you’re a die-hard horror fan or just looking for a good laugh, this movie is sure to deliver. So grab some popcorn, turn off the lights, and get ready for some spooky (and silly) fun!
