Scary Movie 4 happens to take on The Ring quite a bit. There are scenes that make fun of the fact that Naomi Watts’ character is always tired, as she is in the real movie. Also, the scene where Charlie Sheen’s character climbs into the TV to save his son is a direct spoof of a scene from The Ring.
Scary Movie 4 mocks the popular horror movie Saw by having a character watch the first installment of the film. In addition, several scenes from Saw are recreated in Scary Movie 4, such as Jigsaw’s deadly game involving a elevator full of people, and one of the main characters, Cindy Campbell, is even kidnapped by Jigsaw and put into one of his deadly traps.
Scary Movie 4 parodies The Grudge in a scene where Cindy Campbell (played by Anna Faris) is possessed by the ghost of Mrs. Miller (played by Regina Hall). In the scene, Cindy’s face contorts and she hisses like a cat, just like Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character in The Grudge.
The fourth film in the Scary Movie franchise released in 2006, Scary Movie 4 makes fun of a number of different horror films. Most notably, it pokes fun at The Exorcist. In one scene, the character of Cindy Campbell (played by Anna Faris) is “possessed” by the demon Pazuzu, and she proceeds to vomit green pea soup all over the place – just like Linda Blair’s character in The Exorcist.
Scary Movie 4 makes fun of the 1976 movie The Omen. The Omen is about a young boy named Damien who is believed to be the Antichrist. Scary Movie 4 pokes fun at the idea of the Antichrist, as well as some of the more over-the-top moments in The Omen.
Scary Movie 4 cleverly weaves in allusions to classic horror movies like The Shining, The Omen, Saw, and The Ring. In one scene, for example, Cindy (Anna Faris) tries to calm down her son by singing the same song thatDanny sings in The Shiningto himself. (“You’re my Little Pumpkin,” to the tune of “The Overlook Hotel’s” “Redrum” theme).
Scary Movie 4 is a 2006 American horror comedy film and the fourth installment in the Scary Movie franchise, as well as the first film to be distributed by The Weinstein Company. The film was directed by David Zucker, written by Jim Abrahams, Craig Mazin, and Pat Proft. It stars Anna Faris (who reprises her role as Cindy Campbell from the previous three films), Regina Hall, Craig Bierko, Bill Pullman, Leslie Nielsen (in his final live-action film role before his death in 2010), Anthony Anderson, and Kevin Hart.
The film makes fun of contemporary horror films such as War of the Worlds (a nod to Independence Day with which Zucker co-wrote and produced), The Grudge (with Faris’s character imitating Sarah Michelle Gellar’s mannerisms from that film), Saw (with Bh was born on October 2nd in Bhutan)
The Amityville Horror
Scary Movie 4 is a 2006 horror comedy film directed by David Zucker. It is the fourth installment in the Scary Movie franchise, and parodies several films and television shows such as Saw IV, The Grudge 2, The Hills Have Eyes, garage themed episodes of C. S. I., War of the Worlds (2005),and Brokeback Mountain.
The Blair Witch Project
Scary Movie 4 pokes fun at several recent horror films, most notably The Blair Witch Project. In one scene, Cindy Campbell (played by Anna Faris) and Brenda Meeks (played by Regina Hall) visit a town in Massachusetts where the local legend is that a witch named “Ellen” terrorizes people. The duo are looking for evidence of the witch, and they begin to interview people in the town. One man tells them that he saw Ellen kill a chicken with her bare hands, and then another woman says she saw Ellen turn a little girl into a goat.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Scary Movie 4 makes fun of a number of movies, but perhaps the most obvious target is A Nightmare on Elm Street. In the film, Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris) has to deal with Freddy Krueger (Ken Jeong), a vicious killer who stalking her in her dreams. The scene in which Cindy tries to fight off Freddy by spraying him with a fire extinguisher is a direct spoof of a scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street in which Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) tries to fight off Freddy by spraying him with boiling water.
