Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
A sequel to the 1996 smash that both parodied and reiterated the slasher pic genre, reuniting much of the original film's cast and its writer and director, respectively, Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven. In witty fashion, the movie comments on horror sequels while being one, but what sets this apart from most sequels of any classification is its uncommon attention to character. The principals in this film seem even more fleshed out, even compassionate, giving the film some much-needed class to offset the standard slice-and-dice conventions. Longer and less exciting than its predecessor, but filled with a lot of the cheeky humor that made the original so much fun. Reportedly, the screenplay was written on special paper so that duplication of it was not possible, responding to the various internet leaks that marred films like it in its release year.
