Scream 3

Scream 3 was horrible! How could they make this into a movie? The first two were excellent, no complaints, 10s/10s! But this one just sucked! Everything was cheesy. It was more of a comedy, than a horror flick. The ending wasn't shocking (and this ending was supposed to close the series). But worst of all, it wasn't made for horror buffs. It's just one of those movies where anybody can just walk in the theater and watch (you wouldn't even have had to see `Scream' or `Scream 2'). `Scream' was for horrorbuffs. `Scream 2' was for both `Scream' fanatics, and horrorbuffs. But `Scream 3' was just nothing. It had no movie trivia, wasn't even funny, not original at all, and not even scary. The only reason one should view this trash is to see how the great `Scream' and `Scream 2' end, or just want to see if it's as bad as I say. Trust me, it is. 3/10. I gave it a 3/10 because at least all the returning actors came back. David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, Liev Schreiber, and even a special appearance by JAMIE KENNEDY AS GEEKY RANDY MEEKS! Which sucked, but at least Randy was in it!

Scream 2

Two years after the Woodsboro Murders, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) leaves home to major in acting at Windsor College. Everything is great now. Her horrible past is behind her. She has a lead role in a play, is making great friends, and even has a sane boyfriend, Derek (Jerry O'Connell). When everything seems to be going great, two students that attend the same college as Sidney, are brutally murdered by a psychopath in a Father's Death Costume. Sound familiar? Yes. Copycat killer. This copycat killer chooses his/her victims in the order that a victim was killed in Woodsboro. Similarities of the victims in Woodsboro and Windor are the names. Maureen Prescott - Maureen Evans. Steven Orth - Phil Stevens. You get the picture. The killer wants revenge. But who is the killer? And what did Sidney ever do to drive somebody on a killing spree? If the killer is following Woodsboro, the killer must be from Woodsboro. But who could it be?

Could it be one of Sidney's new friends? They seem fine, but you never know. One of them might be from Woodsboro. Or maybe it's somebody in Woodsboro that she already knows. A fellow survivor of the Woodsboro Murders? Dwight `Dewey' Riley (David Arquette), Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox), and Geeky Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy). Why would they want to kill her? Dewey's sister died trying to help Sidney in the terrifying Woodsboro Muders, maybe Dewey blames Sidney for his sister's death. Gale, maybe, we all know she's hungry for publicity, maybe killing is the only way to get some. We all know Randy is in love with Sidney, maybe he thinks he can never get her, so he wants to kill her; Randy and Sidney both go to the same college, doesn't that seem a little strange; they went to the same high school, and now they go to the same college, hundreds of miles away from their hometown, Woodsboro? Or even Cotton Weary (Liev Scheiber), the innocent man who was sent to death-row because Sidney falsely accused him of murdering her mother three years earlier, and now he want revenge? The tale is just as terrifying as the original. This film is the best sequel I've ever seen. It is just a good as the original. No complaints. Very scary, very funny, and very original just like `Scream'. It's even very sad at one part is in the film, which also almost made me cry. I won't give it away, but it has to do with Ghostface in the newsvan, (you'll know what I'm talking about after you saw this, or if you've already seen it). You'll be touched by this shocking scene if you're a big fan of the original. It's also got movie trivia, just like the first. It's totally a movie for the horror buffs. I gave `Scream' 10/10, I decided it's fair to give `Scream 2' a 10/10, because it was just as good. If you loved `Scream', I suggest you see this one too. I would change nothing.

What more could a horror-buff ask for? Scream has it all. Movie trivia and spoofs, twisted ending and beginning, lovable characters played by talented actors/actresses, and is even scary the second time you see it.  The film follows Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), a teenager trying to put her life back together after the brutal murder of her loving mother. The accused murderer, Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber), is locked up and is waiting  to be put to death by the gas chamber. Out of the blue, mysterious killings start to happen. The nosey, local news reporter, Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox), is scooping out this mystery of why these killings started happening exactly one year after Weary was arrested. Weathers believes that Weary is innocent of the murder of Sidney's mother and isn't too far from proving Sidney's mother's real killer may still be loose. Could the killer be Sidney's boyfriend, Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich)? Sidney's best friend, Tatum Riley (Rose McGowan)? Tatum's brother, the town's deputy, Deputy Dwight `Dewey' Riley (David Arquette)? Tatum's boyfriend, Stuart (Matthew Lillard). Sidney's secret admirer, the town's mastermind, who knows everything about everything, Geeky Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy)? Or even the money-hungry fame-seeking Gale Weathers herself?  The big reveal is definitely worth the wait.  Followed by three inferior sequels.
