Malcolm and Kisha move into their dream home, but soon learn a demon also resides there. When Kisha becomes possessed, Malcolm - determined to keep his sex life on track - turns to a priest, a psychic, and a team of ghost-busters for help.
A masked killer begins murdering teenagers in a small town, and as the body count rises, one girl and her friends contemplate the "rules" of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one.
A mysterious killer video tape is circulating around. One look at this tape and you have seven days left to live. News Reporter Cindy Campbell (Faris) witnesses this video tape and tries to work out a way to prevent her death. But this is not the only mystery to appear. Crop circles have been appearing in the local farm of Tom (Sheen) and George (Rex). With help from Aunt Shaneequa (Latifah), Cindy suspects that the aliens may be linked with the killer tape and must now work out both mysteries before it's the end of the world. Written by

I can't believe you let that happen.
I know, I'm sorry. I screwed up.
Listen, we can still save him. The answer to the tape, to your crop circles, is at a lighthouse. Oh, you think I'm crazy, don't you?
Of course I do.

'Scary Movie 3' offers yet more hit-and-miss comedy in the 'Airplane/Naked Gun/Hot Shots' vein of movie parody. As with the previous two films in the 'Scary Movie' franchise, the writers of this film look towards recent popular horror movies to serve as the basis for both their jokes and their storyline. In this case, the plot is a cross between 'The Ring' and 'Signs,' with a few glancing blows aimed at 'The Others,' 'The Sixth Sense,' and, of all things, '8 Mile,' along the way.
Charlie Sheen and Leslie Nielson are probably the most recognizable faces in the movie, both being veterans of earlier 'Airplane,' 'Naked Gun' and 'Hot Shots' films. As with most films of this type, some of the jokes in 'Scary Movie 3' work and some do not, but those that do are often quite ingenious and make the movie as a whole worth seeing. The crudity that marred the previous films in the franchise has been almost completely eliminated here. Some people may find that a loss while others may find it a gain. Frankly, I prefer the gentler, more innocent tone in this edition.
'Scary Movie 3' isn't any great shakes as a comedy, and chances are you won't remember a thing about it even five minutes after you've seen it, but it will make you laugh quite a bit for the 80 or so minutes that you're watching it. And what more can one ask from a comedy than that?
