scream2

Our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back with another tweet by tweet review looking at the scary slasher sequel “Scream 2.” A few people find this one to be even better (ME! ME! ME!) than the original. Let’s see if he does as well.

Thoughts before watching:
Out of all the movies in the series, I’ve seen #Scream2 the least. That’s a shame.

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 I think going to a showing like this would be tons of fun.
0:03 Doing the whole movie in a movie thing based on the first movie is seriously a stroke of genius.
0:07 Scary Movie 2 ruined the bathroom scene for me.
0:10 I love the opening scene to this one, almost as much as the first.
0:17 The horror genre was destroyed by sequels.
0:25 Pow right in the kisser.
0:33 I never realized this but they made it obvious there were two killers early on.
0:40 Dewey’s hobble is hilarious.
0:50 Oh Tori Spelling.
0:52 I wish Randy was a real person.
0:59 I’d actually like to see this play Sidney is in.
1:05 Not Randy!!
1:12 I loved that they used the character Cotton in this.
1:18 Get it Dewey.
1:27 Ghostface, you made a mess.
1:30 The killer is unconscious, why would you not see who it is/bash his/her face in!?
1:37 Imagine how guilty all those people are gonna feel for hanging Derek up there in the first place.
1:48 Poor Aunt Jackie.
1:52 I already said this but I LOVE how they use Cotton in this movie.

Overall: If anything, #Scream2 is even more genius than the first one. Almost every single line takes all the cliches of horror movies and sequels twists them up and makes it it’s own amazingly smart movie.
