Scream 2

Scream 2 ★★★★½

Probably one of the single best follow ups to a slasher movie ever made. Makes a joke out of being a retread while breaking the rules and upping the stakes (killing off a main character from the previous film). 

The only issue I have with the film is that it’s pretty obvious from the start who the killers are. And it’s also unbelievable. 

A preferred ending for me:

SPOILERS


Instead of it being two killers again, it should have started to look that way from the get go only for it to be revealed in the end (same set up with Sid thinking her bae is the killer again) that Mickey did it all on his own. Claiming that he’s better than Stu and Billy because he did the job of two killers by himself. Then you have Laurie Metcalf, who isn’t Billy’s mom (cause holy shit YOU KILLED MY BILLY!) come in and do some sinister shit to get a scoop and out smart Gail Weathers only for her to get herself killed. 

That would have been my ending. 

Also I find myself extrenely uncomfortable watching Sarah Michelle Gellar get murdered when that’s fucking Buffy Summers and she wouldn’t let Timothy Olephant lay a finger on her. But I guess that’s the point.
