  1. Petr Kocanda says:

    Actually there was at least half a dozen composers working on Scary Movie II.

  2. Justin Boggan says:

    At least 14 known composers, after George S. Clinton’s score was rejected.

    After doing all that “Samurai Jack” scoring, he’s just sitting there, only to be used on another crappy Scary Movie film? His agent must be busy elsewhere.

  3. Tor says:

    It’s nice to have Venable scoring movies again, even if it’s “Scary Movie 5”. I almost thought he’d disappeared.
