What Movies Are Made Fun of in Scary Movie 3?

Scary Movie 3 is a comedy film that parodies many popular horror movies. The film was directed by David Zucker and written by Craig Mazin and Pat Proft.

It was released in 2003 and stars Anna Faris, Charlie Sheen, Regina Hall, and Simon Rex. Scary Movie 3 is the third installment in the Scary Movie franchise, which began in 2000. In this article, we will take a look at some of the movies that are made fun of in Scary Movie 3.

The Ring

One of the main movies that Scary Movie 3 parodies is The Ring. This movie revolves around a cursed videotape that causes anyone who watches it to die seven days later.

In Scary Movie 3, the cursed videotape is replaced with a cursed VHS tape that causes anyone who watches it to turn into a “Killer Tape.” The iconic scene from The Ring where Samara crawls out of the TV is also spoofed in Scary Movie 3, but with Brenda (Regina Hall) crawling out instead.


Another movie that is made fun of in Scary Movie 3 is Signs. This movie follows a family living on a farm who discover crop circles on their land and start seeing strange lights in the sky.

In Scary Movie 3, this plot line is turned on its head when it’s revealed that the crop circles were actually made by aliens trying to send a message to humans. The aliens are portrayed as clumsy and have trouble communicating their intentions.

The Matrix Reloaded

The Matrix Reloaded is also parodied in Scary Movie 3. In this movie, Neo (Keanu Reeves) fights against Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) and his clones in an epic battle scene.

In Scary Movie 3, this battle scene is recreated with Cindy (Anna Faris) fighting against clones of herself. The scene is filled with over-the-top special effects and exaggerated fight sequences.

8 Mile

Scary Movie 3 even parodies the popular Eminem biopic, 8 Mile. In this movie, Eminem plays a young rapper trying to make it in the music industry.

In Scary Movie 3, George (Simon Rex) plays a white rapper trying to make it in the “farm rap” industry. The movie even includes a parody of the final rap battle from 8 Mile.

Final Thoughts

Scary Movie 3 is a hilarious parody film that takes on some of the most popular horror and action movies of its time. From The Ring to Signs to The Matrix Reloaded and even 8 Mile, no movie is safe from being spoofed in this comedy classic. If you’re looking for a good laugh and don’t mind some crude humor, then Scary Movie 3 is definitely worth checking out.
