Clark Bray’s review published on Letterboxd:
My favorite thing about watching the Scream movies is hands down how well landline phones are showcased. Somehow Craven makes a landline look sexy. Those long dangly chords and their sleek, off white color. Ok I'll stop there. But seriously. Don't these movies make you want to use landlines again? Minus taking calls from psycho creeps...
Scream 2 features some pretty cheesy overacting, but overall I think it is a worthy sequel to the original. It is crazy reading about all the drama around Scream 2's production with the leaked script online revealing the original killer. That explains why the final script is a little all over the place, but it still works. The follow up rules for how to do a horror sequel check out to me, and the jokes about sequels are pretty funny.
"How about Empire Strikes back? Improved graphics. Better storyline."
"Not a sequel, part of a trilogy, better planned."
I am playing a little catch up on the Scream series before I hopefully catch the new one in theaters. Check out my series rankings here!
