Scary Movie 3 is a 2003 American science fiction comedy film, which parodies the horror, sci-fi, and mystery genres, directed by David Zucker. It is the third film of the Scary Movie franchise, as well as the first to have no involvement from the Wayans family. This is most evident as the film's content is less vulgar than the previous films, and the characters of Shorty Meeks and Ray Wilkins do not appear, nor are they referenced. Because of this, fans consider this to be the downfall of the Scary Movie series. The film's plot significantly parodies the films The Ring, Signs, The Matrix and 8 Mile. It is also the first film in the series to star Leslie Nielsen.

The film's plot is introduced by two girls, Katie (Jenny McCarthy) and Becca (Pamela Anderson), meeting a gruesome supernatural demise seven days after having watched a cursed videotape.
In a farm outside Washington D.C., widowed farmer and former reverend Tom Logan (Charlie Sheen) and his clumsy and easily discouraged brother George (Simon Rex) discover a crop circle in their fields. The "circle" actually composes a sign shaped like an arrow pointing at the Logan house which reads in English: "ATTACK HERE".
Since the events of the previous film, the gang have all gone their separate ways. In Washington, Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris), now an anchorwoman, reveals the crop circle occurrence on the news, and afterwards has an argument with her boss, who only wants stories featuring sex, violence and the weather. She then goes to pick up her paranormally endowed nephew Cody (Drew Mikuska) from school, where her best friend and former classmate Brenda Meeks (Regina Hall) now works as a teacher, no longer dating Ray Wilkins (originally Shawn Wayans). George Logan arrives to pick up his niece, Sue, Tom's daughter, who is in the same class. George and Cindy take an instant liking to each other, and he invites Cindy and Brenda to a rap-battle with his rapper friends Mahalik (Anthony Anderson) and CJ (Kevin Hart).
Later that evening, George proves actually quite successful, but due to some unintentional racist blunders, he gets thrown out. Following the battle, Brenda asks Cindy to keep her company, since she has watched the cursed videotape herself. After playing several pranks on Cindy, she goes to watch television, and is killed by the undead girl, Tabitha (Marny Eng), who emerges from her television set.
During Brenda's wake, George and Mahalik, due to a misunderstanding, wreak havoc on Brenda's corpse in an attempt to bring her back to life. Cindy decides to watch the tape for herself and also receives the fateful message. She calls George, CJ and Mahalik for help. CJ comments that his Aunt Shaneequa, might be able to help Cindy. Aunt Shaneequa (Queen Latifah), who turns out to be The Oracle, and her husband Orpheus (Eddie Griffin) agree to watch a segment of the tape. Shaneequa discovers the hidden image of a lighthouse, which she claims Cindy must find to solve the mystery. But when Cindy returns home, she finds to her horror that Cody has watched the tape, condemning him to certain death.
Back at work, Cindy browses through various pictures of lighthouses, before finding the one depicted on the tape. Desperate to save Cody's life, Cindy tries to warn the population by feeding typing a message into the station anchor's teleprompter, but only part of her message gets through before her boss and a janitor interrupt her. Among those who take her message seriously are the Logans, who have an encounter with an alien disguised as Michael Jackson, and President Baxter Harris (Leslie Nielsen), who personally visits the farm to investigate the crop circles.
With no further resources, Cindy ventures to the lighthouse, where she encounters The Architect (George Carlin). The loquacious (and lech
