* ICantHearYou: Cindy gets a call from the girl from the scary videotape in ''Literature/TheRing'' after watching the video, but at first can't understand that she's being told "seven days" (meaning that the girl is going to come and kill her in seven days) due to bad connection.

The series was originally directed by the Wayans family's Keenen Ivory Wayans, and was written in large part by his brothers Shawn (playing Ray, pictured top right) and Marlon (playing Shorty, pictured bottom left). The first movie was mainly a parody of the first ''Film/{{Scream|1996}}'' (by extent missing the point that Scream was itself a parody of horror movies), although it also heavily spoofed ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'' and took jabs at various other films, and not necessarily just from the horror genre. Despite the promises of no sequels, a second movie was released under the tagline "[[ILied We Lied]]", which mainly spoofed the 1999 remakes of ''Film/{{The Haunting|1999}}'' and ''Film/{{House on Haunted Hill|1999}}''.

* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: Parodied in the ''Exorcist'' spoof segment. The priests end up manhandling and spitting vomit (hey, [[ZombiePukeAttack she started it]]) on the possessed girl before just deciding to shoot her when they get fed up with her insults.

* SpoofedTheIronicFilmSeriously: The movie got some flak for parodying [[Franchise/{{Scream}} a movie series]] that was already meant to be a satire of the SlasherMovie genre. It works mostly because ''Scream'' itself [[IndecisiveParody doesn't really seem sure whether it's meant to be a parody]], and seems more like a straight entry of the genre at times.
