Scream 2 (1997)

No Nudity

Top Scene


Written, produced, and rushed into theaters within a year of the smash hit phenomenon that was Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997) seems like the absolute antithesis of everything for which the original film stood, which is strange considering the entire production team stayed the same for this sequel. Where the original was a satire of the endless string of slasher films that all followed the same basic formula, this sequel leans heavily into the same tried and true slasher sequel formula. Of course, that's not to say that this film is without its charms, particularly the cold open of the film which is set at the premiere of Stab, the fictional film based on the murders from the first Scream movie. Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott is now off at college studying theatre when people close to her begin getting murdered again. The most likely suspect is Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber) the man framed for the murder of Sidney's mother, though as movie nerd Randy (Jamie Kennedy) reminds us, everyone's a suspect! Well, everyone except Randy, who meets a grisly end in this flick. This series was never known for its nudity, which is one of the many ways it managed to subvert the whole slasher movie formula in the first place, and the sequel is all too happy to keep that going. We get some down blouse cleavage from both Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox, along with a non-nude shower scene from Heather Graham playing Drew Barrymore's character from the first film in the Stab "film within the film." Sadly if you're looking for skin, you'll just end up Screaming at your television!
