Scream 2Director: Wes Craven,
A year after the monstrous success of 1996's neo-slasher flick Scream, director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson reunited for this follow-up. Since viewers last saw the characters, nosy newswoman Gale Weathers has written a sleazy best-selling book based on the events of the first film, a book that has been adapted into a Hollywood film called Stab, starring Tori Spelling as Sydney Prescott. The real Sydney (Neve Campbell) has since gone away to college in Cincinnati in hopes of leaving the horrific events of her past behind her. Unfortunately, at a showing of Stab, two college students are murdered in a fashion that is reminiscent of the slayings that took place back in Woodsboro. Suddenly, Sydney, her pal Randy (Jamie Kennedy), and dopy deputy Dewey (David Arquette) find themselves once again pursued by a ruthless masked killer. Among the other potential killers and victims are Sarah Michelle Gellar, Laurie Metcalf, and Liev Schreiber.

Scream 2 to me is better than the first one with more scares and the killer is back wow the actors are great in the movie and Jerry O Connel stars as Derek wow Jerry O Connel in a horror movie i know he usually does comedies but im surprised to see him in Scream 2 the second is better than the first one i liked this one i really did oh also Sarah Michelle Gellar is in the movie as the college girl that gets killed by the killer also Jamie Kennedy as Randy its just sad to see him get killed in the 2nd movie cause i really liked his charcter Scream 2 get ready for it!
Sidney's now in college after her crazy ordeal in the first movie. Also returning are characters Randy, awesome character, Gale and Dewey. There's been another killing and of course there's the recognizable costume. Kind of guessed the twist at the end. While it's not better than the first, I thought it was pretty good and has some tense moments.
this movie was great!! my favourite part was definatly the sarah michelle gellar chase scene(i'd give it 10 stars)simple and clean:this movie rocks!!!!!!!1
What a movie! I could not believe the performance of Neve Campbell. Sidney(Neve) is finally getting over the murders in Woodsboro until...the premire of Stab: the true story movie of the Woodsboro murders. Sidney, along with the rest of the cast is running from the killer, for the second time. SPECIAL NOTE: Neve Campbell WON Best Female Performance at the 1998 MTV Movie Awards.
As student bodies begin dropping around Windsor College, a mature Sidney Prescott and everyone close to her are being pursued by a serial killer. Not knowing who will drop down next, Sid teams up with Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley to put an end to this horror and mayhem. This film was full of action which will keep you hanging on the edge of your seat. Watch the film carefully and see if you can guess who the kiler is going to be, using the rules from the previous film; you might be totally surprised. I really enjoed this film, and I have continued to watch it ever since I bought it. Unlike some other horror films, you will watch this one again and again due to the mix of thrills and chills. Absolutely frightening!! Advice: Watch it late at night for full fear effect.
Here it is the incredible follow-up to the smash hit phenomenon Scream! Away at college,Sidney Prescott thought she'd finally put the shocking murders that shattered her life behind her.....until a copycat killer begins acting out a real-life sequel!Now as history eerily repeats itself,ambitious reporter Gale Weathers,deputy Dewey,and other Scream survivors find themselves trapped in a terrifyingly clever plotline where no one is safe or beyond suspicion!Director Wes Craven brings you the best and scariest of the Scream series!
