Ray Wilkins is one of the main characters in the first two Scary Movie entries. His character is based on Stu Macher from the original "Scream" movie; he was played by actor Shawn Wayans. He appears as a secondary antagonist in Scary movie and one of the main protagonists in Scary Movie 2.



Ray seems to be a stereotypical closeted homosexual or bisexual. Despite the fact he is very much in love with his girlfriend Brenda Meeks, he is often making several homosexual references, sometimes wearing his clothes in a feminine way, making Brenda dress up like a footballer during a makeout session, admiring a male student's butt, calling Brenda "Brandon" and changing his mind instantly to support Cindy Campbell's decision to turn themselves in after hitting David Keegan when Greg mentions his fear of prison rape. Ray is also athletic; he plays football in high school. He also apparently has a habit of playing practical jokes as Greg automatically assumes he took the photograph of his genitals.

Family and Friends

Not much is known about Ray's family. He is the boyfriend of Brenda Meeks and a friend of Greg Phillipe and Bobby Prinze, becoming friends with Cindy Campbell and Buffy Gilmore by association. His relationship with Brenda is continued into college after being complicated by the Stevenson County Massacre.


Scary Movie

Ray is a student at B. A. Corpse High School and the boyfriend of Brenda Meeks. He attends school with Cindy Campbell, Bobby Prinze, Greg Phillipe and Buffy Gilmore. After partying one Halloween, the six of them accidentally struck and injured a man in Greg's father's car. Although Ray was briefly excited about going to jail for what they thought was murder, he helped them to dump the body in the local lake.
The following year, Cindy received a note from the murderer of Drew Decker claiming to know about the man dumped in the lake. Despite the fact that Greg Phillippe and Buffy Gilmore disappeared on them, Ray eventually took Brenda to the movies where he was seemingly slain in a restroom stall as The Killer went after Brenda. Unfortunately, Cindy later learned that Greg and Buffy were dead, and that Bobby was the real killer with Ray helping him. This would mean that Ray staged his death. Ray eventually confessed to Cindy they were posing as the murderer of Drew Decker in order to become famous. Ray, however, declined to let Bobby kill him, and as they argued over their plan, the real killer showed up and stabbed Ray, leaving him in an disturbing position straddling Bobby's body.

In Between

Following his attack, Ray turns up alive and somehow manages to elude prosecution for the murders, likely by implicating Bobby and going through mandatory psychiatric counseling. He eventually gets to attend college with Cindy Campbell, Shorty Meeks and Brenda Meeks.

Scary Movie 2

In college, Ray is still making overt sexual advances to his male classmates. When he runs into Cindy and Brenda, they are shocked to see he is still alive and not in prison. Brenda starts seeing him again and they get together for a sleep study run by Dwight Hartman and Professor Oldman. The study is actually a pretense to investigate the haunting activity at Hell House caused by the ghost of Hugh Kane. During his first night in the house, Ray is attacked by a possessed clown in his bedroom, but he manages to turn the table on his attacker by raping the clown under the bed. As the activity escalates, Ray ends up carrying the injured Dwight on his back (as Dwight's wheelchair was destroyed during the wheelchair joust with the ghost). Cindy tries to lure Kane's ghost onto a device that will dissipate his energies, Ray risks his life to pull her out of the range of the device as it is activated. Ray ends up a hero to Cindy as a result.

It is not revealed what happens to Ray. It appears his relationship with Brenda doesn't continue after college.

Murders Committed



  • Although a running gag in the first movies is that Ray is heavily implied to be a closeted homosexual, he outwardly claims that he is straight (after Bobby Prinze "outs" him after a series of "alleged misunderstandings") near the end of Scary Movie after confessing to Cindy Campbell that he and Bobby were copying Drew Decker's killer to become famous. However, it is also revealed in the same scene that he allowed Bobby to perform oral sex on him once before at Bobby's insistence. It can only be presumed that although Ray refuses to be considered homosexual, he is actually bisexual (getting turned on after Brenda Meeks dresses as one of his teammates in Scary Movie 1.)
  • Although Ray is attacked and killed by the original killer, Ray is still alive by the events in Scary Movie 2 as one of the students chosen to investigate Hell House. The circumstances between the two movies are unrevealed, but it is possible he worked with the police and received a minimal sentence.
  • Due to a change in creative teams, Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4 contain a different continuity than the Wayans-era entries, ignoring or moving on from the first two movies. Therefore, he and Shorty Meeks no longer are a part of Cindy and Brenda's lives or no longer exist in the universe of those two films.
  • There is a theory that Ray Wilkins and Shorty Meeks could be half-brothers, mainly because the two have similar appearances to each other, and Brenda revealing that she and Shorty have different fathers. (In reality, Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans are brothers; Shawn is the older brother of Marlon Wayans.)
