I saw this movie on Netflix.

Well since I watched the first film, I followed through and watched it's sequel. Again, I didn't have any prior attachments to this film and saw it over 20 years too late. This film, however, is still pretty good. Not as good as the first, but does take the situation further. Now the film is poking fun at and celebrating slashers, as well as doing the same for sequels in general. Though especially horror and slasher sequels.
This is a genre I like just fine, but am not a super fan of.

So over all, I found this to be enjoyable and OK. Noting major or super special, at least in my eyes.

Mistake Status: Found a few in my viewing again. And also, like the first, it's not very high priority to revisit again.

7. 9/10. The best of the franchise. If anything, this one's script showed it capable of having the right mix of suspense and terror down, much better than its predecessor. I liked the idea of it taking place on a college campus as there's lots of places for a killer to spring out of onto a victim. Neve Campbell delivers here, in what I felt was the best performance she gave of the character in the franchise. Clearly she's made the character stronger since the last one and has the right mix of inner strength with vulnerability, The two killers themselves were more interesting here, with the latter one, Mrs Loomis, having that always great motive of avenging her child. If I were asked which of the four Scream movies were the best I'd strongly recommend the second one.


Visible crew/equipment: If you look really close in the background as the killer throws Cici off the balcony, you can see someone sitting in a tree, wearing black, with a camera. (00:33:35)

More quotes from Scream 2

Trivia: Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez did the production a favor and directed the film-within-a-film "Stab" that we see portions of. When the movie is shown again in "Scream 4", they added in a title card that says "A Robert Rodriguez" film as a nod to him for filming the scenes.

More trivia for Scream 2

Question: In the movie "Stab" it shows what is supposed to be reenacting Drew Barrymore's death and looks as if it is just like the one in the first film. But how could it be almost perfect if no one was there to see it?


Chosen answer: In real life, they'd have known there was a phone call involved. They would have known her boyfriend was killed. They could have easily pieced together that the killers played a cat and mouse game with the Drew Barrymore character. But that doesn't account for all the details. Anything else would be speculation. My speculation: Maybe Billy Loomis kept a diary.

And rumor has it that Stu didn't die that he may still be alive.
