Its self-awareness has a brashness that can be enlivening.
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...
September 23, 2007
Clever parody of the sequel trend; once again we are treated to a movie mocking its own conventions. Some great comic -- and terrifying -- moments, but suffers for not being as original as the original.

If you liked Scream there's no reason you shouldn't like this sequel.
June 24, 2006
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.
January 1, 2000
A horror movie balancing gore and terror with personality, humor and a nifty gimmick.
January 1, 2000
Scream 2 is a clever and wittily manipulative copycat sequel to Scream.
January 1, 2000
It's one of the better sequels to come out in years, and although it doesn't pack the emotional wallop of the first film, it's still head and shoulders (and punctured eyeballs) above most of what's out there.
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.
January 1, 2000
Williamson's script is funny and smart.
January 1, 2000
The movie is enjoyable.
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.
January 1, 2000
Smart and scary like its predecessor, it delivers the shocks and a fair amount of sly wit.
January 1, 2000
Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson have sharpened the focus along with their copycat killer's knives.
January 1, 2000
Scream 2 has so much tongue-in-cheek trickery that it virtually escapes the horror genre.
