Product Description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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.

SYNOPSIS

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.
Wes Craven did the best with the weak script.

I used to think that nothing could compare to the original, but I have to take my hat off to Kevin Williamson for his brilliant sequel! Once again we are joined by old pals Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers, and Dewy Riley as a copy cat killer goes on the rampage. Our old favourites are joined by a great new hip young cast including Jerry O'connell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Heather Graham, and Jada Pinkett. A must see movie!

It's hardly suprising that a sequel was made to the smash-hit 'Scream', but what is suprising is the fact that this sequel is a brilliant horror flick and almost surpasses the original. Wes Craven jumps aboard once more to deliver another helping of blood-splattered mayhem. This time around, the survivors from the first film come under attack when a movie based on their experiences is made, unleashing a slew of copy-cat murders. Sidney (Neve Campbell) returns alongside Officer Dewey (David Arquette), as the body count begins to increase. The gore factor, as well as the body count, also increases since the first movie, and this sequel also has its own brand of humour. Craven literally exposes sequels for what they are - but makes fun of sequels in general, making this instalment highly entertaining. Kevin Williamson returns to write the screenplay, and it's as witty and as funny as it's predoccessor. As sequels go, this is truly superior work, except it never gets quite as tense as 'Scream'. Anyone who loved the first, is gonna' love this! It's rather a pity, that it was followed by the reasonably poor 'Scream 3', the final chapter in the series.

Although Scream 2 was full of excitment, it didn't live up to the original. But with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell acting, they certainly didn't disappoint. I didnt find the ending on Scream 2 as good as it was on Scream. To watch this movie, I would recommend you see Scream first, as the main plot generates from that movie. It all revolves around a girl, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell). Her mother was raped and murdered, a year before the setting of Scream took place. Sidney accused a man, Coton Weary (Liev Schreiber), but was it really him who killed her? Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox Arquette), a journalist, is out to prove Coton's innocence, and also find "the real" killer. With Deputy Duey (David Arquette), Woodsboro's policeman, Gale, Sidney, and the rest of the gang, will they frame the killer, or will he get away? This is the main plot of Scream 1. In Scream 2, the funny phonecalls, and the taunting all come back again, as Sidney and her friends are now attending college. Quite a few suspecting killers in this one, certainly a shock when you see who the killer really is! Hats off to Wes Craven, the director, as the film was well co-ordinated. I certainly cant wait to see Scream 3. This is definately one to add to your video library. - Daniel Shanahan. :)

Yes, the first ‘Scream’ movie basically reinvented the tired ‘slasher’ genre and it’s still being imitated to this day. I dare say that not even the producers dreamed it would be as popular as it was. Yet it was. Therefore a sequel was almost guaranteed.

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.
