Now that I have seen all of these movies I can safely say that this is the second best of the franchise- which might not be saying much considering that the other sequels were sort of redundant and silly.

Worth a watch for fans of the Scream franchise or horror in general.

11 years later after the last film, it's still worth a fun trip to travel back to Woodsboro and see who makes it out alive. And, the twist ending completely shocked me, I didn't see it coming. There is so much more comedy in this than it's predecessors which just makes it more enjoyable. It has a fairly slow pace to begin with but picks it up near the end making it much better. Reflections of the original installment can be seen with the characters of Robby & Charlie clearly being modernized versions of Randy Meeks. The killers (whose names I will not reveal) were very good, even if one was a bit too cruel. In one scene, you see Charlie taped to a chair outside the patio doors whilst Kirby is answering questions given by the killer in order to save him, this scene being a clear …
