Entertainment Weekly
Lacks even the good, guilty setup of "I Know What You Did Last Summer" -- the sense that the heroes are fleeing the consequences of their own crime.

Empire
Never quite as witty as it should be.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
A lazy, hasty effort that offers little beyond a few jack-in-the-box startles and a high body count, including Hewitt's bouncing about in a shirt half-unbuttoned over a bikini top.

The less you demand of this bloody, by-the-numbers sequel, the more you'll enjoy it.

It lacks humor. Unlike "Scream", this film is more of a horror-drama, with everybody taking themselves way too seriously.
25
Chicago Sun-Times
Assembles the building blocks of idiot-proof slasher movies: Stings, Snicker-Snacks, false alarms and point-of-view baits-and-switches.
25
It's standard slasher fare but has its moments.

USA Today
Suspense takes a vacation in sequel. [13 November 1998, p. 6E]

New York Daily News
Ain't exactly the Bahama Mama of all horror pics. [13 November 1998, p. 56]
25
The best that can be said about this film is that it's watchable, and that's not the way it could or should be.

ReelViews
If there's a blessing, it's that the sequel isn't appreciably worse than the original - but that's slim praise considering how bad the first one was.
