It is a parody of several popular horror movies, including Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Halloween. The movie revolves around a group of teenagers who are being stalked by a mysterious killer. In this article, we will try to unravel the mystery of ‘Who Is the Killer in Scary Movie 1?’
The movie begins with a teenage girl named Casey Becker receiving an anonymous phone call from a masked killer who asks her about her favorite scary movie. The conversation soon turns into a terrifying game of trivia, after which the killer reveals that he is watching Casey through her window. Casey tries to escape but is eventually killed by the killer.
The next day, a group of teenagers including Sidney Prescott, Casey’s best friend, gather to mourn Casey’s death. Soon after, they start receiving threatening phone calls from the same masked killer. They try to seek help from the police but their efforts are in vain as the killer always seems to be one step ahead.
As the movie progresses, several characters come into suspicion as being the masked killer.
