[DELETED POST-CREDIT SCENE: closeup of a door. There is a knock, and the doorbell rings. The door is opened by an unseen homeowner. Standing just outside is an all-too-familiar figure, well-dressed and carrying a suitcase]

First of all, forget those ads where they make you think this is kind of a horror movie. This is one of the best comedies I've seen in a while. Those who thought that Kevin Williamson was "dead" were COMPLETELY wrong. This is one hell of a movie with a great and tremendously funny script and with a great cast. Marisa Coughlan should be nominated to the Oscar...her THE EXORCIST scene is a classic already. She steals the show although Helen Mirren is great in her bitchy role (you find yourself shouting to the screen "KILL HER!!!") Rent it, you won´t be disappointed.
