The lovely Neve Campbell returns to do battle with another knife wielding maniac in a ghostly mask, in this highly enjoyable sequel by Director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson.
Now at college, Sidney thought she'd put her troubles behind her and moved on with her life. But unfortunately, with the opening of the film "Stab", which is based on the Woodsboro murders, a copy cat killer is now on the loose and it looks like he's after the surviving members of that incident.
Of course it isn't too long before Sidney's friends, new and old alike, are being targeted by the new killer in the Ghostface mask, one of which being none other than Sarah (Buffy) Michelle-Gellar. David Arquette returns as bungling cop Dewey Riley, who heads over to Sidney's college with Reporter Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox) to try and find the killer. Also returning is Jamie Kennedy, as horror nerd Randy Meeks.
Suspicion falls upon new boyfriend Derek (Jerry O'Connell), but as the bodies pile up, it looks like nobody is above suspicion.
As with the first film, this delivers more slapstick murder, mayhem and humour. If you loved the first film, you should equally love this one, which very cheekily mocks horror sequels, in the same way the first film mocked horrors.
