Before Wes Craven passed away, he gave us one last SCREAM. With Kevin Williamson along as screenwriter again, these two leave Ghostface’s legacy full of terror.
SCREAM 3 doesn’t match up with the other films in the series. Don’t count it out, though. Craven still brings the horror, with a dash of depravity & a stellar Neve Campbell performance.
One of the better horror sequels, SCREAM 2 takes aim at the sensationalisation of true crime, media exploitation, and yes, even the horror genre and sequels themselves.
Craven’s influential, innovative slasher took horror to a new level in the ’90s.
