When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe...Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.

Two years after the events of Scream, Sidney Prescott and Randy are attending Windsor college. They are trying to get on with their lives...Until a new Ghostface killing spree begins. With the help of Dewey and Gale, Sidney must find out who's behind the murders. As the body count goes up, the list of suspects goes down.
Originally scheduled to open alongside Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) and Titanic (1997), both blockbusters shifted their dates so as not to be pitted against this movie. See more »
There is a Los Angeles County Seal on the rear window of the ambulance at the end of the movie. Though the location of Windsor College is not explicitly stated in the film, one can infer that it is meant to be located in southern Ohio, as evidenced by the police cars using Ohio license plates, the local news reporter's microphone at the beginning features the words "Ohio 66," and the area code on the caller ID of Sidney's prank caller in her opening scene displays the area code 513, which is reserved for the southeastern corner of Ohio.

It's a perfect example of life imitating art imitating life.

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.
