You all know how much I adore Neve and the character of Sidney but a change of pace might freshen up the franchise and her eventual (fingers crossed) return in Scream 6 will be even more exciting. Her coming back with nothing to do in 5 would be anticlimactic and I have to say I am looking forward to it being the Gale Weathers show.And Neve isn’t in it. This may be the first film in 26 years I “wait for the video” for.
I'm thinking maybe they intended the first movie to be focused more on Dewey, the second on Gale and the grand finale to be about Sidney. Obviously I hope the latter two survive and don't meet Dewey's fate.Yeah Sidney being away gives this movie a big chance to show more of Gale, so let‘s hope they use that chance.
In the post-screening Q&A at TIFF, Williamson mentioned his love of chase scenes in horror and John Hyams, whose film Alone is a masterclass in tense set pieces, is the perfect director to bring that vision to life. Fans of the chase sequences in Williamson’s Scream 2 and I Know What You Did Last Summer are in for a treat. As soon as the masked assailant shows up, the chase is on and it doesn’t let up for the rest of the film. It’s a white knuckle adrenaline rush as the action covers the whole house, the woods outside, the floating raft on the lake and everything in between.
My Scream 2 4K Blu-ray just shipped.
Since we're discussing Scream 2, can we agree that the opening and the cop car scene are two of the greatest scenes from the franchise?
