In this third installment of the Final Destination series, a student's premonition of a deadly rollercoaster ride saves her life and a lucky few, but not from death itself which seeks out those who escaped their fate.

Jigsaw locks a few unlucky people in a booby trapped shelter and they must find a way out before they inhale too much of a lethal nerve gas and die. But they must watch out, for the traps Jigsaw has set in the shelter lead to death also.

It has been two years since the tragic events at Woodsboro. Sidney Prescott and Randy Meeks are trying to get on with their lives, and are currently both students at Windsor College. Cotton Weary is out of prison, and is trying to cash in on his unfortunate incarceration. Gale Weathers has written a bestseller, "The Woodsboro Murders," which has been turned into the film, "Stab," starring Tori Spelling as Sidney. As the film's play date approaches, the cycle of death begins anew. Dewey Riley immediately flies out of Woodsboro to try to protect Sidney, his "surrogate sister." But in this sequel to the 1996 horror film, the number of suspects only goes down as the body count slowly goes up! Written by
Sarah Michelle Gellar became famous for playing 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer', a character designed by creator Joss Whedon as an antidote for the sexy blonde girl who always got killed in horror films. In 'Scream 2' she plays just such a character. See more »

Dare me to say it? ...THIS MOVIE WAS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!
Ha! There goes my "useful comment" rating!
Not many movies beat their originals, especially in the horror genre. However, Scream 2 proved them wrong.
Sidney has gone to college and moved on with her life after the events of Scream. However, the murders and famous "ghostface killer" have followed too.
Sidney, Dewey, Gale, Randy, and Cotton all return from the first film. But we also get an interesting new group of people: Hallie, Derek, Mickey, Cici, and Debbie the reporter, who is actually more annoying than Gale.
We also have a higher body count, more gore, more interesting kills, and a much better ending (in my opinion).
I recommend this to fans of the original movie. 8/10.
