The Scary Movie 2 cast names are, in some cases, the same as those in the original Scary Movie. However, as horror movies tend to-even horror-comedy hybrids-some of the characters have to go and be replaced with new faces and names. Because some of the characters in the first Scary Movie were victims of the smoking serial killer, there are new characters to make us laugh…until they die.
About Scary Movie 2
Scary Movie 2 came close on the tails of the original Scary Movie-just a year later, in fact. Fans of 2000's Scary Movie didn't have to wait long at all for the next installment of the comedic twist on popular horror movies. Cindy Campbell and Brenda Meeks are back, and this time their professor has talked them into staying in a haunted house for a school project. There's a ghost in the house that needs to be caught. In addition, there's a demon, an exorcism, a creepy caretaker, and more in Scary Movie 2. If you loved the first movie's humor, you'll probably love this one too.
