Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Fully aware of its status as the sequel to the surprise hit thriller of 1996, this lively follow-up trades freshness for familiarity, playing on our affection for returning characters while obeying--and then subverting--the "rules" of sequels. Once again, movie references are cleverly employed to draw us into the story, which takes place two years after the events of Scream, at a small Ohio college, where the Scream survivors reunite when another series of mysterious killings begins. Capitalizing on the guesswork involving a host of potential suspects, director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson have crafted a thriller that's more of a Scream clone than a genuinely inventive new story. But the shocks are just as effective, and escalating tension leads to a tautly staged climax that's simultaneously logical and giddily over the top. Background information for trivia buffs: to preserve the secrecy of plot twists, copies of the screenplay were heavily guarded during production and restricted to only the most crucial personnel. When an early draft was circulated on the Internet, screenwriter Kevin Williamson did rewrites, and subsequent drafts were printed with red ink on brown paper, eliminating the threat of photocopying. None of the cast members knew who the killer was until the final scenes were filmed! --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very, Very Good Sequel! June 1, 2002
Format:DVD
Scream 2 begins at a movie theatre, were a movie called 'Stab" (based on the book "The Woodsboro Murders" which in turn was based on the killings in the first "Scream" film and was written by Gale Weathers) is playing. Two college students (Omar Epps and Jada Pinkett/Jada Pinkett Smith from The Nutty Proffesor) are murdered by yet another killer clad in black and wearing a "Father Death" mask. The next day, Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell) is horrified to hear this on the news and runs to her new boyfriend, Derek (Jerry O'Connell) and her old friend from the first film, Randy (Jamie Kennedy) for protection, but no matter, she is soon attacked by the killer and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox/Courteney Cox Arquette from Friends) is on the case like a lightning bolt. This annoys Sydney, but she has bigger things to worry about. The body-count is beginning to rise, and anyone is a suspect! Is it Derek ("Hello, Billy Loomis!"). Is it wounded deputy Dewey Riley (David Arquette),who seems to immediatlly show up right at the time of them murders? Is it Randy, who may have seen one to many movies and gotten brainwashed? Is it Gale, the annoying reporter who always in on the case? Is it Mickey (Timothy Olyphant), another movie freak? Is it Cici Cooper (Sarah Michelle Gellar), who defends the right to have violence in movies? Or, is it another reporter, Debbie Salt (Laurie Metcalf from Rosseanne)? Now, this mystery is going to be murder to solve!
Scream 2 is an excellent thriller and wonderful sequel to a smash hit phenomenon, Scream (1996) which was also a great movie. Scream 2's great becuase it, like 1994's Wes Craven's New Nightmare, has the courage to talk about things most horror movies would avoid. Scream 2 asks the question "Do violent movies cause our violent actions?

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep On Screaming December 27, 2007
Format:DVD
Scream 2 is on a par to its predecessor. Its as scary as part one and dialouge is more witty. The cast members are also eye candies to viewers. Even I was actually quite surprised when I noticed Rebecca Gayheart, Heather Graham, Jada Pinkett and Sarah Michelle Gellar have small roles in the movie.

The story continues as another killing strikes again after the horrific events in part one. All the 3 main characters have grown to a more serious and the writers put a more in depth personality rather than one-dimensional. Sidney (Neve Campbell) have grown more stronger this time. She's no more the "I-Am-Helpless" lady. Gale (Courtney Cox) seems more sensible and less sacarstic to get whatever she wants. Infact, she outgrown herself and her character are more in depth. Same goes for Dewey (David Arquette) no longer the idiotic hobo but a macho man.

Some of the guest roles are interesting too but rather too short. Sarah Michelle Gellar is on example who own her death scene. Its the 2nd best chase sequences in the Scream series and Sarah's 2nd best in all of her horror movies she's in (1st being I Know What You Did Last Summer) (1st being Rose McGowan death scene in Part one and Drew Barrymore's gutted scene). Jada Pinkett smith opening scene was a jaw dropper as well.

This movie is well crafted just like the 1st and the story line doesn't gets confusing for viewers. The writer's just keep it simple and stick to where part 1 left off and also twisting some characters which you didn't expect them to be what they are.

This is one of the most entertaining horror flicks of the year 1998-2000.
Scream series is definitely original, lots of slapsticks and lots of eye candies for viewers to google at and have them playing a guessing game of who lives and who dies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Take it or Leave it February 9, 2011
Format:DVD
Personally, I thought that Scream 2 was NOTHING in comparison to the orginal SCREAM.
The first Scream was clever,entertaining and had humor in the right places.
This Scream I thought was pretty cheesy with the jokes, the script and the acting. It almost seemed to be mocking the original movie.
You never really got to know the characters in this movie so you felt nothing through all of the "tense" scenes.
They could have done a great job with this movie but it just turned out to be pretty mediocre.

If you're even a little critical of movies then you probably shouldn't watch this.
Though I gotta give them credit for the slight twist at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Time To Scream Again... January 4, 2006
Format:DVD
After becoming a phenomenal hit with young, and even some older, movie audiences with "Scream", Wes Craven was beginning to come under immense pressure to top himself with a much anticipated sequel. Dimension films being smart enough to know that this is one horror franchise that if handled correctly could prove to be very profitable and entertaining, lobbied hard to get both director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson back for the sequel. Upon accomplishing this task, and also the task of bringing back the acting talents for the surviving characters from the first film, the production crews for "Scream 2" were up and running at full speed.

"Scream 2" finds young Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) going to college, and trying to put her horrific past behind her. Try as she may, with the release of a movie based on the events that engulfed Sidney's life in Woodsboro, Sidney once again is forced to face her tragic life. Just when the movie madness is dying down, murders begin to occur on Sidney's college campus, and it appears that someone is setting out to make a real-life sequel to the events in Woodsboro. With history repeating itself, news reporter Gail Weathers (Courney Cox), Woodsboro's own deputy Dewey (David Arquette), and a couple of other survivors from the original film, are back to try to save themselves and prove their innocence.

Any complaints or worries anyone had about a sequel to "Scream" have but to watch "Scream 2" and realize that they had nothing to worry about. Everything that was great about the original movie has been maintained and improved upon for the sequel. Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson have once again crafted a very clever web of suspicion and murder, that will entangle you and never let go until the credits roll.
