Brenda Meeks is a main character in the Scary Movie franchise. She is played by actress Regina Hall.



Brenda is a very upbeat, hyperactive and chatty person. However, she sometimes tends to turn into a very loud and obnoxious person during random times of her life and displays selfish and obnoxious habits. For example, when she's at the theater, she begins illegally taping the movie and talking very loudly on her phone, going as far as insulting people around her. Although she's friends with Cindy, she tends to place herself before Cindy in their friendship, willing to let Cindy get killed at Hell House. She's also very superstitious and believes in horoscopes. She also visits a psychic regularly for advice, and while at Hell House, she believes she can feel the spirits.
Brenda sometimes seems to be perceptive and quick to realize facts that others seem to miss, such as when Dwight tries to split them up racially. This revelation is usually something which helps everyone else in the long run. She may also be the most boldest out of everyone else, often times standing up to her fears to face them, like Tabitha, who she tries beating up before getting killed, and the animated skeleton, which she knocked down and re-assembled, and Billy's brother, whom she eventually seduced, stopping him from hurting her friends.

Family and Friends

Several details have been revealed about Brenda's family. She alludes to Shorty Meeks being her half-brother with separate fathers with both her mother and father appearing at her funeral in 2003. She was also the girlfriend of Ray Wilkins in high school, later making up with him in college, but numerous incidents suggest Ray showing signs of being gay and mentioning a man named Brandon. after the break up, she shows several signs of being promiscuous. In 2006, she flirts with Jeremiah and seduces Martian Doll named Zoltar, later giving birth to an alien baby nine months later. However, it is not clear if this is still the original Brenda from Cindy's school given her funeral or another character named Brenda.


Brenda Meeks is a student at B. A. Corpse High School where she is best friends with Cindy Campbell. She is also the sister of Shorty Meeks, who seems to be in the same grade as her. Her boyfriend in school is Ray Wilkins.
On Halloween 1999, she and her friends were returning home from a party and hit a guy with their car. Although he turns out to be alive, they're too distracted arguing to notice this and accidentally knock him out, later robbing him before tossing him off a pier, which then kills him. Brenda gets a golden ring before Greg Phillipe and Ray toss him in the lake.

Scary Movie

One year later, Brenda learns that a classmate named Drew Decker has been murdered at her home. She and the others soon get warnings that the killer might be coming after them. Cindy is attacked and Greg and Buffy Gilmore mysteriously disappear. When Brenda and Ray go to the local cinema, Brenda is very disruptive and chatty while Ray goes to the men's room. Meanwhile, the Ghostface killer comes into the dark theater with his knife in his costume to kill her. Unfortunately, Brenda is so obnoxious, talkative and annoying that the other moviegoers take the knife and stab Brenda before Ghostface can.

In Between

Brenda survives her attack and recovers, ultimately following Cindy to college.

Scary Movie 2

In college, Brenda takes a psychology class under Professor Oldman promising a positive grade for staying the weekend at Hell House for what is passed off as a study in insomnia. She also renews her relationship with Ray, but when the house turns out to be haunted, they struggle to escape. When Dwight Hartman, Oldman's assistant tries separating them, Brenda wants to know why the white and black people have to separate. Although Dwight seems to rethink his plans, he still splits the group up racially. When Cindy releases an animated skeleton from a crematorium, Brenda is completely willing to let it kill her, later ganging up with Cindy to take it apart and put it together wrong. When Hanson, the caretaker, cuts up Shorty, Brenda fights Hanson with Cindy Campbell and Theo Keyoko, defeating him.

In Between

Brenda graduates college and becomes a teacher.

Scary Movie 3

Brenda and Cindy going to see George's rap battle.

Brenda gets a job as a teacher for Cindy's nephew, Cody Campbell, and Sue Logan, the niece of George Logan. She goes with Cindy to go see George do his rap-battle, confessing to Cindy that she feels worried that something bad was about to happen to her and that Cindy should help console her by spending a night at her place. Cindy kindly agrees, but they're both shocked that George's hood resembles a KKK costume after he wins. Brenda and Cindy retreat to her apartment where Brenda mentions that she watched a cursed tape. However, Brenda doesn't take it seriously; she plays several vicious pranks on Cindy until Cindy no longer cares. When the ghost girl Tabitha arrives out of the TV, to take her, Brenda can't get Cindy's attention. Although Brenda fights her and eventually gains the upper hand, Tabitha kills her. At her funeral, Brenda's friends from the rap battle, George Logan and Mahalik show up, but mistakenly think she's still alive and try to revive her, only to blow up her remains.

Scary Movie 4

Somehow, Brenda (or another friend of Cindy's named Brenda) turns up alive working as a reporter. She helps Cindy and Tom fight against the alien invaders, later having sex with one of the aliens, which gets a sexually-transmitted disease that wipes out their race. She eventually ends up pregnant and has a half-human baby with alien DNA.

Friends and Relationships

Cindy Campbell


Cindy has been her best friend since high school, although Brenda tends to put herself above her friendship, such as abandoning her in Hell House and sometimes making snide comments about Cindy (who seems to ignore them). They like to be close to each other and have already come together in various situations, such as battling a skeleton it and fighting aliens. Brenda also alerts Cindy about her being friends with Buffy Gilmore claiming she is a fake person and worrying about her when she is beaten by Greg Phillipe twice.

Ray Wilkins

Ray was Brenda's boyfriend in high school and then in college, they had a romantic relationship, although Ray showed signs of homosexuality, sometimes calling Brenda "Brandon" and even making her wear his football clothes. Brenda was disappointed and broke up with Ray after discovering that he was Bobby Prinze's accomplice in the murders of their classmates, but they are eventually dating again in college and spending the weekend with others at Hell House, fighting for survival together. However, their relationship doesn't continue after college.

Shorty Meeks

Shorty is her brother (although a dialogue between them suggests that they are half-siblings or possess different parents). They live in disagreements due to the fact that Shorty is always spending time with his friends smoking marijuana which she disapproves. Brenda is worried about Shorty when he is smoked by a giant marijuana in Hell House. Shorty is absent at her funeral in 2003.

Bobby Prinze

Bobby was a friend and classmate of Brenda, but she had a certain prejudice against him for living in a trailer and being destitute. Brenda was disappointed to find out that he was one of the killers.

Buffy Gilmore

Buffy and Brenda were close even though Brenda hated her and considered her fake. Buffy also seemed contentious to her at times. Their mutual rivalry seems to have increased after Buffy's victory in the beauty pageant, and she went on to ridicule both her and Cindy.

Greg Phillipe

Greg was a friend of hers; they weren't that close, Brenda acted scared of him after he twice beat up Cindy.

Theo Keyoko

Theo Keyoko was a close friend of Cindy's in college and friends with Brenda through association. They got along well and fought together in "Charlie's Angels-style" against Hanson in Hell House.

Alex Monday

Alex was a classmate of Brenda and Cindy in college. After Alex imagines a friendship with Cindy (depicted in a deleted scene) she becomes friends with Brenda by association, Brenda demonstrates a certain jealousy toward her approach to Cindy and pretends to know her in kind.

George Logan

George was a friend of Brenda's, cheering for him at a rap battle and introducing him to Cindy. George later goes to her funeral and even trying to revive her when he thinks she's alive, eventually blowing her up.

Mr. and Mrs. Meeks

Mr. Meeks is Brenda's father and Shorty's stepfather; Mrs. Meeks was their mother. She is mentioned by Brenda in 2003,later appearing with Brenda's father at Brenda's funeral. It is possible Brenda did not get along with them.

Tom Ryan

Tom was a subsequent friend of the second iteration of Brenda, meeting him through Cindy during an alien attack and their capture within an alien craft, basically replacing George in their circle and battling the Aliens with her and Cindy.


  • Neither Cindy Campbell nor Brenda Meeks appear in Scary Movie 5. They were replaced with the characters of Jody Sanders and Kendra Brooks. (The only returning cast members are Charlie Sheen and Simon Rex.)
  • With the Wayans leaving the franchise, Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4 slighty deviates to acknowledge the absence of Shorty in the later franchise. He doesn't even turn up or get mentioned at her funeral in the third movie nor is there any allusion to Brenda being an only child. There is no mention of Shorty in the later films, and his abesence can be best attributed to the fact that he spent more time smoking marijuana with his friends than devoting time with family.
  • In Scary Movie, Brenda alludes to her and Shorty as having separate fathers which would make them half-siblings, which would lend credence to the idea they both went their separate ways.
  • In Scary Movie 3, Brenda's grandmother is played by the same actress, Monica Dillon, who played Mahalik's grandmother in Scary Movie 4. However, there is no indication in the continuity or dialogue in the series to suggest they're the same character, which would have otherwise made Mahalik and Brenda cousins.
  • Although Brenda is stabbed several times in the first movie, she still manages to survive to attend college with Cindy. However, in Scary Movie 3, she not only dies, but she has a funeral and her body is blown up, making her more dead than anyone else has been in the franchise. Yet, she still turns up alive in Scary Movie 4, so unless this Brenda is a separate character than the first or the consequences of her death were revoked with Tabitha's death, her return remains a mystery.
  • A pattern appears in both the Wayans and Zucker version of Scary Movie (Scary Movie 1 & 2 and Scary Movie 3 & 4) respectively. Brenda dies in the "first" part of each timeline (Scary Movie 1 and Scary Movie 3), and yet, returns in the subsequent sequel (Scary Movie 2 and Scary Movie 4) with no explanation, although the fourth movie does make light of the fact she had died.
    • Several fans have suggested that Tabitha's defeat reversed history and allowed her to return to life or the aliens might have reanimated her, but these theories may be beyond even the scope of the surreal nature of the Scary Movie franchise. If defeating Tabitha reversed all the deaths, Cindy would have reverted back to the night before Brenda #1 was killed, and Cindy never would have met George Logan, erasing the events of Scary Movie 3.
    • Another theory is the "Two Brenda Theory," implying that Brenda the stewardess was the Brenda with whom Cindy attended high school, and Brenda/Cody's teacher was a separate Brenda. However, this completely ignores the fact that Brenda #1 (the one who survived the murders and Hell House) was the only one had had a history with Ray Wilkins.
  • Brenda is one of the few characters except Cindy to appear in all the Scary Movies prior to the fifth entry of the franchise.
