To repeat the phenomenal success of their collaboration on 1996's hit thriller Scream, horror maven Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson did a fair amount of recycling (same movie, slightly different situations), but this sequel comes surprisingly close to matching its popular predecessor. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Jamie Kennedy, and Liev Schreiber reprise their roles from Scream, and this time they're caught in a new cycle of murders near a college campus, just as the slasher movie Stab (based on the events from Scream) is about to make its local premiere. That's the setup for another frantic guessing game involving a number of possible suspects, and the mystery is fatally complicated by the reappearance of the eerily masked killer from the first film. Who's under the mask? Craven and Williamson set up a roller-coaster series of wild plot twists and deadly encounters, and the snappy dialogue once again caters to those in the know about fright flicks, sequels, and all the movie rules that do (and sometimes don't) apply to the escalating body count. Featuring several scenes that will have you biting your nails and gripping your seat, this movie's an exception to the rule--a sequel that beats the odds to satisfy its target audience. Everyone else--you've been warned! --Jeff Shannon

Neve Campbell, Jamie Kennedy, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Liev Schreiber all return from Scream (Dimension Collector's Series) (1996).
A black man (Omar Epps) and his girlfriend (Jada Pinkett Smith) are on a date to see the new horror movie, Stab, based upon the book by reporter Gale Weathers. The black woman has some issues about African-Americans in horror movies. She doesn't really want to see it. Inside the theater, many young people are in the "Stab" mask. She continues to complain about the movie and decides to go to the concession stand. She starts to get the creeps. She overhears the movie is based on a true story. Her boyfriend tries to scare her with a "Stab" mask on. It works and she decides to see the rest of the film. Her boyfriend goes into the men's bathroom. He hears noise in the next stall. Suddenly he is stabbed by a killer in the mask.
You will have to see the rest of this movie to find out what happens next.

What's your favorite scary movie ?
Thanks Amazon 👍👍👍👍👍👍
Anyway this movie is a lot of fun and entertaining. Some things don't work of course though. Like how they use Han Zimmer's score from Broken Arrow whenever they show Dewey. Jerry Connell "singing I think I love you" to Sydney. Things that make it clever though for example, is when it pokes fun at other movies and even at itself. I like how Timothy Olyphant trys to come up with sequels that out-due the originals to Jamie Kennedy's character. It discusses sequels when it itself is one...trying to out-due the original and in some ways it does.
Definitely worth watching, and one of the better sequels in this genre.
