Wes Craven returns to direct this sequel to 'Scream'. A year on from the events of the first film, survivors Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) and Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy) are now students at the same college. A movie based on the Woodsboro murders, 'Stab', sparks off a series of copycat killings, and soon the nightmare is beginning all over again. While Sidney wonders who she can really trust, Randy teams up with former police deputy Dewey (David Arquette), still recovering from the effects of his stabbing the first time round, to work out the rules of a real-life horror sequel. One thing's for sure: the body count has to be higher. Also back on the scene are reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), who has successfully published her own account of the original killings - sacrificing her romance with Dewey in the process - and Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber), the man Sidney had wrongfully imprisoned for her mother's murder.
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. Capitalising 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

SCREAM 2 takes place 2 years after the events of SCREAM. Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox) has published her book about the Woodsboro murders which inspired the theatrical release of a movie based on the murders called stab. This triggers a new series of murders in Woodsboro and Sidney's (Neve Campbell) life once again is threatened by a ghost faced killer.
THE PROS & CONS
While SCREAM 1 was a parody to original slasher film classics, SCREAM 2 is a parody of sequels and does the same thing - also to excess.
Unfortunately the story is much weaker and not as clever as in the original. The characters also have taken a hit: while the surviving main characters from the original (Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Jamie Kennedy deliver the same great performances and are well-written (the sequel was also penned by Kevin Williamson, who also has a cameo) the new characters are rather dull and serve only as canon fodder. Williamson should have maintained the quality writing of the new characters, but Jerry O'Connell (Jerry) and Timothy Olyphant (Mickey) are annoying characters with no depth. CC (Sarah Michelle Gellar did her part fairly well, but she too is only canon fodder. Liev Schreiber (Cotton) the only halfway decent new character, while Laurie Metcalf (Debbie) and especially Jada Pinkett Smith (Maureen) are as annoying as characters can get. I was actually glad that latter one only had a small Barrymore-like part.

The greatest thing about ‘Scream’ was how ‘self aware’ it was, constantly parodying its own genre. Therefore, the imaginatively-titled ‘Scream 2’ had a lot to live up to. Did it? The film itself answers the question. Knowing it’s a sequel, one of the characters states that by definition a ‘sequel is an inferior product.’ I guess he has a case (although the other characters disagree with him!). ‘Scream 2’ may not be as original as the original (surprise, eh?), but it carries on nicely in the same vain.
Neve Campbell (and the remaining survivors of the first encounter) all return (which is nice and not always common in horror sequels) for this outing where, once again, they’re mercilessly stalked by a masked killer. Yes, the plot is pretty simple – as was the original and so many slasher flicks before it – but it works, again. The fact is that there’s so many awful slasher/horror films infesting the bargain DVD buckets that this sequel almost seems like a masterpiece in its own right.
Once again there are plenty of ‘red herrings’ in terms of characters who may or may not be the killer and I doubt anyone will really guess who’s behind the mask until it’s too late. Neve Campbell is great to root for as the heroine, but David Arquette does tend to steal the show in terms of sheer lovability!
It’s witty, it’s gory and it’s fun. If you liked the first, you should enjoy the second and if you like slasher/horror films in general, you should also get something out of this.Read more ›
