When it's striking at horror sequels and their cliches, "Scream 2" is almost as good as the original. But when it isn't, the movie drags and stops being either funny or scary.

Entertaining sequel to the hit slasher that holds up better than it should. Even if a character doesn’t have much screen time, most of them are memorable.

Whether that’s on purpose or not to mock the trends that sequels do become softer, I can’t say. Scream 2 is a fun horror sequel with some suspenseful moments. But the original does fare better thanks to its more acerbic wit and darker tone.

Trying hard to impress the fans of the fans of the franchise. The soundtrack and performances shine. Not even close to the brilliance of the original but good enough to entertain despite its lack of character development with the new figures. Part of the plot and direction were slightly confusing, still Scream 2 delivers the gore and laughs to be a …
