20th Century Movie of the Day

Today in 1998, Scream 2 was released in UK cinemas

Scream_2-1998Scream 2 is an American slasher film directed by Wes Craven and is the second instalment in the Scream film series. The story takes place two years after Scream and again follows the character of Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) who becomes the target of a copycat killer using the guise of Ghostface. Sidney is accompanied by film-geek Randy Meeks, retired deputy sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and news reporter Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox). Like its predecessor, Scream 2 combines the violence of the slasher genre with elements of comedy and “whodunit” mystery while satirising the cliché of film sequels.

The film also received positive reviews, with some critics arguing that the sequel surpassed the original in terms of quality.
