    It is not always a good thing to launch two genre-related films within a week of each other but it might actually help "Scary Movie 5." Sure, it is a spoof but with the success of "Evil Dead," it could be the prefect one-two punch. Go to see them back-to-back. What a way to spend a day by getting scared and then poking fun of those things that just made you that way. Oh, the opposite
