Scream 2 ★★★★½

Scream 2 is a fun slasher sequel that has the perfect amount of meta commentary mixed with comedy and genuinely suspenseful and thrilling kills. I saw it in the theater with my mom in 1997 after spending the year or so leading up to its release devouring any info or merchandise I could related to the first Scream movie.

Despite insurmountably hefty expectations, Scream 2 delivered for me a fantastic sequel and a movie that's stayed with me for a long time.
