    There's enough ingenuity and scariness to please plenty of fans of the first film...abounds in confident stylistic and technical flourishes that are the result of Craven's long experience as a horrormeister.
    Kevin Thomas, LOS ANGELES TIMES

    Wes Craven was born to direct this material. One of the most successful of horror filmmakers.
    Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

    The windy plot allows Wes Craven to demonstrate again just how good he is at punching your scare buttons...with real tension and pays off with a proper shock.
    Kim Newman, EMPIRE MAGAZINE [UK]

    Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson have sharpened the focus along with their copycat killer's knives.
    Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY

    A yum-yum cast of pretties pull off the neat trick of affectionately counting the many ways available to horror sequels to suck, without making a sequel that sucks.
    Lisa Schwarzbaum, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

    ...bloodsoaked follow-up that leaves few of the cast unscathed...While the shocks come thick and fast, the real pleasure comes from the knowing humour and ingenious spoofing of genre tropes.
    Neil Smith, BBC News

    Scream 2 is a clever and wittily manipulative copycat sequel to Scream...We never stop hearing the wheels turning in Craven's and Williamson's heads.
    Jay Carr, BOSTON GLOBE

    If gore and guts can be classy, then Wes Craven's sensationally scary, brazenly funny Scream 2 is a classic...Scream 2 does what few sequels ever dare to do: It surpasses the original with genuine inspiration...impressive collection of flesh-and-blood characters...Quality performances...That emotional quality is something rarely seen in modern horror (except in Craven's work) and never in cheap slasher pictures...the Stab opening is one of the most disturbing scenes I've ever experienced...a skin-crawling, white-knuckles, sweaty-palms exercise in sheer terror...Kick-ass entertainment.
    Bruce Kirkland, JAM! MOVIES

    There's lots of laughs in "Scream 2," but not so many as to undermine the fear factor. In fact, the attacks are actually a bit more intense here than in the original, thanks to some innovative set pieces...winning performances.
    Edward Johnson-Ott, NUVO NEWSWEEKLY

    Scream 2 is an ingenious, often hilarious, movie that does nothing to diminish the well-deserved cult reputation of its director...Craven has reinvigorated the genre--he's one of the most important popular filmmakers of this era; his best movies will be giving new generations of teenagers bad dreams when copies of "Forrest Gump" and "Braveheart" are decomposing in landfills by the Craven appreciator will want to see this less than twice.
    Andrew O'Hehir, SALON.COM

    ...there's absolutely no telling who the killer might be until the final, bloody scene. Williamson is one of the best scenarists in the business, and he keeps his dialogue crisp and rolling...Craven's take-no-prisoners direction; it's tightly edited, riveting, and giddily showy...ecstatically of the better sequels to come out in years.

    The movie is packed with layers and self-references that make it a pleasure to watch...What I liked best about the horror aspect of the movie is that the monster is not supernatural.
    Marty Mapes, MOVIE HABIT

    The movie is enjoyable...there's plenty of horror to go around in Scream features a gallery of legitimate characters rather than a group of cardboard cut-out stereotypes lined up for slaughter.

    Williamson's script is funny and smart...working that line between movie convention and reality...There's nothing comic about the killings. When people get stabbed here, they get stabbed -- repeatedly and viciously, in a way that looks personal, and in a way that's difficult to watch...Craven can do things other directors can't -- or at least can't pull off nearly as well.

    Scream 2 has so much tongue-in-cheek trickery that it virtually escapes the horror genre.
    Janet Maslin, NEW YORK TIMES

    ...Most intelligent movie of the moment...The opening sequence of Craven's Part Deux is brilliant.
    Joe Baltake, SACRAMENTO BEE

    Scream 2 is a good sequel...It does disprove the rule that "sequels suck."
    Christopher Null, FILMCRITIC.COM

    Scarier and funnier than the original.
    Christopher Brandon, TNT'S ROUGH CUT

    ...successfully combined humour and our love of being scared...clever sequel, which possesses the same self-reflective attributes thanks to screenwriter Kevin Williamson...a macabre delight.
    Elspeth Haughton, APOLLO GUIDE

    The real fun of Scream 2, like Scream, isn't seeing people slaughtered. It's the smart-mouth dialogue and in-joke ironies...the film-within-the-film is a splendid device...A strong ensemble also does its best.
    Bruce Westbrook, HOUSTON CHRONICLE

    ...under-your-skin almost-superior sequel.

    The killings...are pretty fun...more elaborate...the ending is great.
    Ted Prigge, REC.ARTS.MOVIES.REVIEWS is the rare sequel which surpasses its original. Scream 2 certainly does...this sequel is at its best during its gripping final half...Director Wes Craven still knows how to scare an audience...more thrilling and more satisfying than the original.
    Madeleine Williams, CINEMATTER

    If you liked Scream, you're going to like Scream 2, simple as that.
    Susan Stark, DETROIT NEWS

    It's still bloody good fun.

    Most of the frights are time-tested cliches of the genre but they remain effective.

    There are some welcomely unexpected plot twists.
    Christine James, BOXOFFICE MAGAZINE

    ...there are genuinely scary moments in this sequel...since some of the murders are enacted before our eyes in all their horror, the terror is greater than the travesty...Scream 2 works primarily as a genuine film of fright and panic and only intermittently as burlesque, which is good enough.
    Harvey S. Karten, COMPUSERVE

    The film is remarkably well-acted.
    Shawn Levy, OREGONIAN

    Successful follow-up to the ever-popular SCREAM ..a good scary movie.

    Smart and scary like its predecessor, it delivers the shocks and a fair amount of sly wit...Scream 2 is that rare sequel that is equal to its original...Williamson sets the traps and Craven springs them on the audience with devious skill. And, as they did before, they laugh at the movie's conventions before reconfiguring those conventions to terrifying effect...more tightly wound and more intricately constructed than the original -- but still maintaining a sharp sense of fun.
    Sean Means, FILM.COM

    A horror movie balancing gore and terror with personality, humor and a nifty gimmick.
    Michael Wilmington, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

    ...the rules for horror sequels: they must always be bloodier, they must always have a higher body count, and they most always suck. Scream 2 follows these rules perfectly--all except the last one, that is...provides enough shocks and starts to satisfyingly frighten...Scream 2 does a good job of keeping the suspense at a max...If you're not all tense during the scene when Sidney crawls across the killer's prostrate body, you must be dead...Scream 2 provides a bundle of laughs, lots of scares, and a hell of a good time.
    Matt Easterbrook, Matt's Movie Reviews

    This sequel is better than its original, Scream--it's more confident, more stylish, more intricate, and even more scary. And--what sets it above others in its genre--it's funnier. Much funnier...Director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson bring the Scream trademarks and improve on them...Craven manages to evoke shivers even on the sunny campus...contains many very frightening scenes...after the first five minutes of Scream 2, you'll never want to enter a movie-theater bathroom again.
