Scream 2

Wes Craven adds a second piece to his spoof like horror series with somewhat mixed results. The red herring factor is almost replaced with nonsensical plot diversion at times but who cares, it's a chance to put some former A-listers and up-and-comers on the screen and hack 'em up. The opening moments are worth a look just to see Omar Epps die real good. Not that I don't like Epps, hell, watch him regular on HOUSE but it's great to see a fave get a good screen death. Likewise for Jada Pinkett Smith who buys the farm in a scene straight from DEMONI and is no doubt a fave of the Fresh Prince's when the two are not experiencing marital bliss. Sarah Michelle Gellar looks to be practicing for THE GRUDGE 2 and Heather Graham...well....I never can figure why Graham EVER dies in a film but that's just me. Let's put it this way, if you don't know what you're supposed to be getting with SCREAM 2 then it probably isn't meant for you. Look hard for Matthew Lillard, not so hard for Luke Wilson and ol' Craven himself pops in for a cameo.
