matt qt’s review published on Letterboxd:
This sequel reached all of my greatest expectations for what a scream sequel would be like!
It’s so very rare for a sequel to be almost as good as the original like Scream. I can only hope that the remaining sequels are this good, though I know that’s unlikely. Some of the camera shots were so impressive, Wes Craven really was one of the greats and will be missed. I haven’t seen a movie from him that I didn’t like.
I also really liked the music that played in the scenes with Dewey and Gale together, it gave off a Twin Peaks type of feel which was very enjoyable. Similar to the first film, the reveal is unexpected and shocking to everyone. The best part about the Scream movies has been guessing who ghostface was, and number 2 sure delivered on that reveal.
