Scream 2

Scream 2 ★★★

Admittedly better than any 'rushed to theaters before the post-modern slasher craze ends' sequel has any right to be: the return of screenwriter Kevin Williamson ensures "Scream 2" is able to retain at least some of what made the original work, including the self-aware teen-speak dialogue and an innate understanding of horror movie conventions. What this installment lacks is a cast of characters as charismatic as our first batch of kids (need that Matthew Lillard energy!) or a satisfying motive behind all the carnage.
