Freyr’s review published on Letterboxd:
Somehow I managed to never watch any of the sequels in this series, though the intro to this one gave me some real déjà vu considering how it was spoofed in Scary Movie 2. Anyhow, going to go ahead and work though these, though I have to admit that I was never a huge fan of the original. Not a bad movie, just didn't love it.
Getting a little off focus here, but the sequel is...fine. A lot of the same, but a little less smart in its homage, and pretty obvious in its twist (I was confident in who the killers were pretty early on). It really did not need to be 2 hours long at all either. The score, when I did pick up on, felt pretty cheesy too. Intentionally so, maybe? I don't know, but I wasn't feeling it. Not expecting to be blown away by any of these at this point, but we're gonna give them a shot.
Edit: I kind of spaced on it by the end, but I did rather like the theater rehearsal scene. It looks nice, and was one of the few moments that I found actually tense. I liked the car crash kill too, pretty cool effect.
