Scream 2 Reviews

March 24, 2011
The rest of the cast of disposable archetypes deadpanned about why ''sequels suck'' -- a particularly funny joke, since this one didn't.
July 28, 2008
Visceral, witty and appropriately redundant...

If you liked Scream there's no reason you shouldn't like this sequel.

The film itself is stuck in a cycle of repetition, with slight variations.

While the shocks come thick and fast, the real pleasure comes from the knowing humour and ingenious spoofing of genre tropes.

Scream 2 has so much tongue-in-cheek trickery that it virtually escapes the horror genre.

If you liked Scream, you're going to like Scream 2, simple as that.

The real fun of Scream 2, like Scream, isn't seeing people slaughtered. It's the smart-mouth dialogue and in-joke ironies.

Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson have sharpened the focus along with their copycat killer's knives.
January 1, 2000
A horror movie balancing gore and terror with personality, humor and a nifty gimmick.

Scream 2 is a clever and wittily manipulative copycat sequel to Scream.
January 1, 2000
Smart and scary like its predecessor, it delivers the shocks and a fair amount of sly wit.
January 1, 2000
A yum-yum cast of pretties pull off the neat trick of affectionately counting the many ways available to horror sequels to suck, without making a sequel that sucks.

The movie is enjoyable.
January 1, 2000
Williamson's script is funny and smart.
January 1, 2000
Scream 2 is an ingenious, often hilarious, movie that does nothing to diminish the well-deserved cult reputation of its director.
January 1, 2000
There's enough ingenuity and scariness to please plenty of fans of the first film.
January 1, 2000
Wes Craven was born to direct this material. One of the most successful of horror filmmakers.
