Movies That Started Under A Different Title

While various sources can’t quite settle on what the original name was going to be for “Scary Movie,” they all agree that it’s some variation of “Scream If You Know What I Did Last Halloween” — with some versions adding a few more horror movie titles into the mix. This is a callback to the Wayans brothers’ previous genre spoof, “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood,” which cleverly combined the names of the various ’90s hood films that it was parodying. 

Though that tradition ended with “Don’t Be A Menace…” after “Scream If You Know…” wasn’t actually used for “Scary Movie,” it was nearly revived for 2001’s “Not Another Teen Movie.” Following suit of the aforementioned films by spoofing a specific movie genre — in this case, coming-of-age teen dramedies from the previous two decades — “Teen Movie” nearly got its own wordy title incorporating the names of the movies it was skewering. In this case, it would have been “10 Things I Hate About Clueless Road Trips When I Can’t Hardly Wait to Be Kissed.” 

Sadly, like “Scary Movie,” that title was abandoned in favor of a name that simply states the genre being parodied, followed by the word “movie.” All we can do now is speculate as to what films like “Date Movie,” “Epic Movie,” “Superhero Movie,” and “Disaster Movie” might have been called if the original naming tradition had been kept alive.
