Scream 2

Scream 2 ★★★★

This is really solid but it was always gonna be hard to top something as fresh as the first movie. All the meta commentary and genre awareness is still fun, even enjoys playing with the knowledge of this being a sequel that has to up the ante, but it does feel a bit less inspired this time. Thankfully Craven is still having a hell of a time behind the camera, crafting even more elaborate slasher setpieces and giving them an even nastier mean streak than those in the original.
