Plot Summary:
"As Scary Movie 2 begins, a young girl, Megan Voorhees (Natasha Lyonne), is possessed by a demon and two priests, Father McFeely (James Woods) and Father Harris (Andy Richter), must drive it out, but they fail miserably after bad things happen, including tongues being stuck out by Megan and Father McFeely, and all three people vomiting green pea soup on each other. A year later, the survivors from the first Scary Movie, heroine Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris), gay jock Ray Maker (Shawn Wayans), drug dealer Shorty Meeks (Marlon Wayans), and Shorty's still chatty sister, Brenda (Regina Hall), are at college, trying to forget the incidents that occurred last Halloween. Cindy is falling in love with Buddy (Christopher Kennedy Masterson), a guy who likes to give people wedgies and Ray is still confused about his sexuality. As a school project, their professor, Professor Oldman (Tim Curry), and his paralyzed assistant, Dwight (David Cross), have decided to do a research study at Hell House, the house where the bad exorcism took place, and disguise it as a sleep disorder study. But chaos starts when Cindy arrives and meets Hanson (Chris Elliot), the house's crazy caretaker who has a deformed hand that grosses people out when they see it. But the house has its hidden secrets and Cindy, Buddy, Ray, Shorty, Brenda, the Professor, Dwight, Theo (Tori Spelling), and Jamie Lee Curtisto (Kathleen Robertson) must find those secrets out, even if they are disgusting."

This filmed looked as funny as the first but was it a scream?

In a word NO, this film was made purely for the money and it shows. The supposed plot sees the survivors from the original (who were all dead by the end of the movie) spend the weekend taking part in a scientific experiment at Hell House, which is rumoured to be haunted.

The only strong part of this movie was the opening spoof of the 'Exorcist', after that it fell flat on it's face and failed to generate many laughs, as the film suffers from a disjointed feeling. The actors falter as they spoof their way through a range of set pieces that don't really have much relation to each other.

The returning characters thankfully include Brenda and Cindy, and Kathleen Robertson acts as a fitting replacement for Shannon Elizabeth, but sadly as with a lot of films the cast are sadly underused. The funniest new character by far has to be Chris Elliott's Hanson the butler, who has a few funny scenes with David Cross's Dwight.

If only the Wayans hadn't sold out and had taken their time, this could have been a worthy sequel, however it is basic and underdeveloped. The DVD does showcase some funny deleted scenes and they seem to explain certain characters involvement better, which left me wondering why the funniest scenes were cut out of the film.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This film is lame and lacks the atmosphere of the first one. Let's just hope part is better than this.
