Scream 2

Scream 2 ★★★★½

I really dug the first Scream when I watched it a few days ago and was really itching to dive into the sequel as soon as I could. And I think I liked it even more!

I accidentally came across a potential spoiler while looking at the cast list, so I spent the whole movie thinking I knew who the killer was. Turns out? …I was right, but the way the movie was structured, there still managed to be some surprises. 

I love the way this movie grows the characters. Sidney, Dewey, and Gale all had significant growth here that continued logically from the first film, and I liked Randy more this time around. Great performances from Liev Schreiber and Timothy Olyphant as well!

I know this is likely the high point of the series, but I’m still eager to explore the next two movies!
