Scream 2 (1997)

Scream 2 (1997)


David Arquette
Neve Campbell
Courteney Cox

Directed by Wes Craven

As with the first Scream movie, the first scene of the movie star actors who are now established by their own rights. The first death scene was acted by Jada Pinkett Smith and Omar Epps.
Well, this first murder scene was not as spectacular as the first iconic murder scene in the first movie, but it did deliver something very different. Our victims were murdered at a cinema, one got stabbed through the ear while eavesdropping, the other killed while watching a movie and she walked to the front and bled out.

What I love about this second part is that Gale (Courtney Cox) got sucker punched again by Sidney. This movie had more teen actors who ended up becoming stars, Sarah Michelle Geller, Timothy Olyphant and Portia de Rossi were in this movie.
Scream 2 is considered by many to be better than Scream (1996), but to me both delivered the same power punch needed to make me always remember the movies.

Well this time in this Scream masterful acting was the driving force. I guess a seen it all before was already the thing the writer and director duo were afraid of, with the movie being done a year after the first, so more obvious steps were taken in the quality of the production and the writing.
If you have not seen this movie before, the killer too was given enough camouflage this time, to keep you the viewer guessing.

The twist in this movie was, crazy runs in the family. An idea which the makers sold as we watch things unfold in the second movie in the scream series.

This time our leading lady Sidney has moved to a new town and started some new life two years after the incident in the first movie. Thanks to Gale's new book which was about the incidents in the first movie, a movie has been made and was airing when this movie starts. It was in the airing of this movie that the first murder occurred.

At first it seems the murders were not connected to Sidney, but as the killings continue the police saw a pattern and Sidney was placed under protective custody. Soon the killings brought the survivors of the first incident together as they begin to look for the killer. As they get attacked one by one, desperation sets in, here is where I stop. But like the first movie it could not have been one person behind it all, so we must find out who the new killers are.

Scream 2 was also a critical and commercial success like its predecessor and both movies are a must have.
