Here is the release order: 

  • “Scary Movie” (2000)
  • “Scary Movie 2” (2001)
  • “Scary Movie 3” (2003)
  • “Scary Movie 4” (2006)
  • “Scary Movie 5” (2013)

The five movies, collectively, cost about $177 million to make, but grossed almost $900 million worldwide. It’s easy to see why studios wanted more and more of them. Wayans was only involved in the making of the first two “Scary Movie” films, with the legendary David Zucker taking over for parts 3 and 4. One can sense a definite change in energy from “Scary Movie 2” to “Scary Movie 3,” as the series tilted away from stoner humor and semen jokes, and more toward a broad sense of slapstick. There was still plenty of crotch trauma, however. After a while, the “Scary Movie” series ran out of horror trends to spoof, and ended up spoofing any movies or TV shows they wanted. 

Friedberg and Seltzer, as mentioned above, redirected their spoofery toward other genres, and many of us recall — like traumatized war veterans — the movies they unleashed on the world throughout the 2000s. The Friedberg/Seltzer comedies, in turn, inspired other “Movie Movies” by other filmmakers. Here, then, is a more complete list that incorporates the relevant 2000s spoof cycle. Note: this list doesn’t include every spoof film from the 2000s (sorry “Delta Farce”), but just the Friedberg/Seltzers and the other “Movie Movies.” There are 16 in all.

  • “Scary Movie” (2000)
  • “Scary Movie 2” (2001)
  • “Not Another Teen Movie” (2001)
  • “Scary Movie 3” (2003)

  • “Date Movie” (2006)
