    I love how easily Ghostface is made to look goofy when he chases people in these films. It was especially noticeable in the first one. He's constantly plunging his knife into wood, or running into tables. It gives it some humor, sure, but it also gives it so much realism and is a reminder that Ghostface is just a human, which in some ways makes it scarier. He is not some unkillable demon or dream terror or alien clown etc. It's fantastic.

      @Visitormassacre that also makes it more realistic; you'd be in so much fear and panicked that you wouldn't always think the most logical, perfectly practical way. the killer is knocked out? run away to safety would probably be most people's real instinct

    The Jada death is one of the most heartbreaking deaths in the series....The fact that she's being killed in front of a lot of people, and then looks at them for help at the end...Creepy

    • Nyleve Eiram

      Besides Cassies Beckers kill this was the second best kills in the movie.

    • 07foxmulder
      07foxmulder 3 years ago +146

      On paper the kill is a very cool idea, but Jada Smith ruins it. Her overacting is laughable. I have no idea why Craven went with her.

    • 07foxmulder
      07foxmulder 3 years ago +54

      Izaan ur rehman Everything about her is so forced. It isn’t 100% her fault because Craven has the final say, I get that. The scene itself is a tad ridiculous (intentionally) so I don’t want a ridiculous performance on top of that.

    Fun fact: Jamie Kennedy asked Wes craven if he was actually dead or a fake uot like Dewey in the first movie and when Wes said “No your dead dead” Jamie said “ well then let’s show them I’m dead” grabbed fake blood doused himself in it and they used to gory take

  • DTOM
    DTOM Year ago +195

    Scream 2 holds up so well in large part due to the lingering aftereffects of the first film. Sydney has trust issues, Dewey has scar tissue, and Gale has....not yet learned her lesson. That said, my favorite part is how *the moment* Sydney's friends see her upset, they're there to support her. They all have scars from the first movie, but Sydney had it worse then any one of them.
    It's something that has carried through in subsequent films, although Sydney's group sadly gets smaller. Losing Randy hurt.
    In Scream 3, losing Cotton hurt a lot more than we expected. Because we saw the way he changed the moment he realized what was going on, "Leave her alone! She's been through enough!" (or something similar).
    Moments like that have allowed Scream to age much better than other slasher franchises. And the new film coming out seems to understand that. I'm praying that this is the film where Dewey finally gets to have a badass moment. Poor guy has gotten the shit end of the stick every time.

      Also it helps that the First 2 films were written together by the same writer with sequels in mind right away. That’s not too common with new movies.

    Fun Fact:
    Apparently in an earlier draft of the script, Randy compares the theater murders to the theater kill scene in He Knows You're Alone (1980), which, extra fun fact, is Tom Hanks' first actual film role.

      Don't get me wrong, Sid and Gale are my top 2 horror characters ever (And that includes all the killers out there), but it would add a real sense of danger if they died.
      Example: I didn't expect Dewey to survive the 2nd movie precisely because Randy didn't.

    I'm curious if James has seen Jamie Kennedy's Clip-Share channel and the videos he's made about his experience with the Scream movies. It's an interesting behind the scenes look into the movies and the character. According to Jamie, Randy's dead body didn't have that much blood on it originally but Jamie talked to Wes saying that a victim of a slit throat should have more blood on them. He intentionally went overboard on the blood for his dead body reveal because he thought it'd look cooler and make the audience feel even sadder for his death.

    The 3rd rule of horror sequels is, "never ever, under any circumstance, assume the killer is dead."

    Fun fact: Back when they were making Scream 2, the killer reveal was originally gonna be Derek and Sidney’s roommate Hallie. But somehow, the reveals ended up getting leaked and the fans found out about it. So they had to get rid of the ending that they already had planned out, and changed it to Mrs. Loomis and Mickey being the killers. Sounds kind of interesting when you think about it.

    Obviously nothing will ever beat the opening of the first Scream, particularly because it subverted expectations brilliantly by immediately killing off the biggest star in the movie.
    Having said that, the opening for Scream 2 does come close, for very different reasons, and is sooooo fucking good! (Maybe not Phil’s death so much, considering how lucky Ghostface got that he put his head up against the stall _exactly_ where he needed him to at the _perfect_ time. It’s still a good jump scare though.!)
    But boy does my heart go out to poor Maureen. Being killed with all of those people around but none of them believing you/grasping what the Hell is going on until it’s too late! Not only were they _not_ helping, they were actively cheering ghostface on!
    Also, Jada Pinket Smith _killed_ (ha) this scene. When she broke down in front of the screen as she was succumbing to injuries, wailing and crying, it broke my goddamn heart!!!

    • 07foxmulder
      07foxmulder Year ago

      It’s the dumbest opening scene in the franchise. Smith’s cringe over acting completely ruins the scene. But, hey, someone’s gotta enjoy mediocrity I guess.
