Scream 2 (1997) KILL COUNT


Welcome to the killcount where we tally up the victims in all our favorite horror movies. I’m James agee nice and today We’re looking at Scream 2 released in 1997 less than a year after the original smashed all Expectations with audiences and critics alike writer Kevin Williamson and director Wes craven returned to make a scream sequel that commented on horror sequels much like the original commented on the Genre in General With them came the entire surviving cast in a much bigger budget since the original proved to be such a hit in this film Sidney Prescott has moved on to the fictional Windsor college in Ohio And is having a hard time moving past the events of the original Since Hollywood just had to go and make a movie about it scream 2 is similar to the original in terms of tone and quality But based on the rules of a sequel that randy gets us it does have a slightly higher body count How much higher let’s find out and get to the kills? Scream 2 as a similar opening to the original killing an established actress to kick off the movie this time it’s Jada Pinkett Smith playing Maureen Evans the chick who is not excited about the new movie stabbed the dumbass white movie about some dumbass white girls Given a white asses touch of fuck her boyfriend phil convinces her to see it anyway So they settle in and watch scenes that are a carbon copy of the original film only with heather Graham as a fictionalized Casey becker Phil heads to the bathroom only to find the urinals occupied by a couple of nice ghost cases So he steps into a stall where he overhears some weird noises from the next toilet over When he puts his ear closer for a better Listen mean ghostface stabs Phil through the partition who bleeds out his mouth and flings down to his death if the stab wound didn’t kill him the infection from lying on the bathroom floor like that probably would have Ghostface sits down next to Maureen and after she cowers against his shoulder She finds blood on his jacket then he unsheathed his knife once more and stabs her in the stomach she stands up and tries to get away from the killer but He follows her repeatedly sticking her in the back of the side as the audience Obliviously cheers around her she stumbles up to the stage in front of the screen and lets out a howl Before falling back and dying in front of everyone it says that she got killed because people weren’t paying attention But I will say it’d be kind of dope to be in the theater with that many people going balls crazy over a horror movie After our title card pops up with a slash were reintroduced to sidney Prescott who has now learned how to use caller Id to ward Off people fuckin with her she and her roommate Haley find out about the movie theater murders on TV and reporters swarm her because of the connection at Sidney same college as randy meeks Who has a debate in his film class with new character Cici Cooper and Micky altieri there they argue about the merits of sequels which? Is really just an excuse for the characters to be self-Aware and Borderline meta? That’s who we want to do that equal to? The Murders attract, Deputy Dewey to town who’s limping around way outside his jurisdiction To check in on sidney and make sure she’s okay the media circus also stirs up gale weathers who blows into town with a new Cameraman named Joel since her last one got his throat slit she get some lavish praise by local reporter Debbie salts played by Laurie metcalf With just the perfect amount of crazy and arrived gal hits of sidney and pulls a real frenemy move by confronting her with Cotton weary Recently exonerated from the crime of murdering Sydney’s Mom Maureen Cotton just wants to make amends But sidney ain’t having it so she backs left Gal to the ground guess They’re not going to be bfFs anytime soon also, not in the mood to BfF gal is Dewey Who’s upset about the way she wrote about him in her book page? 41 Deputy Dewey booth with inexperienced yeah, well maybe put making all those weird faces And you’d get more respect do we that night there’s a big old sorority house party where a very Young Portia de Rossi and her Sorority sister Rebecca Gayheart Try to recruit sidney to the hashtag Greek life house-sitting another sorority by herself is Cici who gets a call from a familiar voice As can be expected the call turns into harassment And while cici chats with another sorority sister ghostface slips in through the front door he texts DC and chases her up multiple staircases where? She throws plants and bicycles at him before he catches up to her and throws her through the glass door onto the patio He stabs her a bunch of times in the back then lifts her up and tosses her several stories down to the concrete ground giving us our third killed the movie if only she had trained display ghost faces to the party that sydney is that is cut short when Everyone hears about cece’s murders. So they all rush out and play what the fuck is that guy doing? What the fuck is that face? That is the best extra ever when Sydney goes back inside to get her denim jacket She gets a familiar phone call for ghostface attacks there because just like the original this movie isn’t afraid of putting sydney in danger early On she escapes them because she’s sydney f and Prescott and reunites with her new boyfriend Derek goes back inside to find and fight ghosts Fate do we arrive to find Derek alone and flashed in the arm. Are you doing there said feeling some trust issues? Yeah, those Dewey who’s questioning? Why Derek went back in the house alone? And it’s awfully convenient way to blame the victim Do gail figures out the killer is doing a sort of copycat thing based on the names of the victim and Sidney gets a couple Of detectives to shadow her from now on everyone starting to suspect each other with Mickey naming randy as a possible killer So maybe Derek should just act normal and not start singing to sit in front of the entire Cafeteria in a super cringy rendition of I think I love you Oh, no, you’re going to do that anyway alright dude afterward He gives his greek letters to Sydney which we’re told is a big deal He can I suppose to give you three last two girls No shape way inform The president of the king man that a thing after watching a scene from stab where Tori spelling plays Sydney and Luke Wilson plays Billy Loomis Randy explains to Dewey the rules of a sequel number one the body count is always bigger and we to Death seems always much more elaborate more blood more Gore Dewey for his part continues to make ridiculous faces in the school theater sydney rehearses to play Agamemnon where she plays cassandra during a seizure inducing chorus scene she starts seeing ghosts facing the crowd but she’s not sure if it’s real or if she’s just Freaking out man Derek shows up the perfect time to seem suspicious so sidney tells him to go on and get well hanging out on campus Randy Answers Gail’s phone to find Ghost face on the other end, Egeland Do we try to figure out? Who’s making the call and whereas in the first scream? It was suspicious, when Billy had a cell phone I guess by 1997 they were much more common since everyone on campus seems to be rocking them this prevents gale and Dewey from tracking the killer down in time to save randy from getting pulled into gail’s van by ghost base his screams and Struggles being drowned out by a bunch of Youths Walking by Blasting Kottonmouth Kings Hey, Suburban life gallon. Do we eventually find Randy’s body in the band street with blood I was always devastated by the loss of my favorite character But I also always thought that it looked like someone just squirted a bunch of ketchup all over him their little hot dog randy in The library said to get some creepy proto aol messages from the killer and then cotton weary shows up Bugging her about doing an interview with diane sawyer. It’s done sawyer. Hello He gets roused up enough for the detectives to slam him up against the wall and take him into the police station Where cotton gets upset with the way? He’s being treated goodnight, please remind everyone here that I’m an innocent man Yeah, well maybe start acting like it dude He’s not the only one being affected by this seems like everyone’s on edge with gale cussing out Debbie salt and cameraman Joel quitting his Job out of fear for his life doing gale managed to bond though So they take Joel’s tapes to the university auditorium to see if they can find any clue do we find the hot one no not that pervert another tape with footage of the kills they spot ghostface in the projector booth and During the ensuing chase doing gale. Get separated gale. Wash us through soundproof glasses Do we get stabbed in the back by ghost face yet again spitting up blood and sliding down the window in dramatic fashion? But he doesn’t make it onto the kill count goes spoiler alert this movie. Just repeated the same dead do we fake out as the original gale manages to lock ghost face out of her room long enough for him to get bored and Do his disappearing act? After Sidney and Haley leave with her detective detail Dara gets ambushed by his frat douche brothers who are mad at him for giving his? Greek letters to sidney they tie them up to the theater set design and engage in some really weird hazing ritual because they’re so cool And Freddie hashtag greek life in their cop car the detectives make a couple of shitty and Borderline inappropriate jokes we tell you I’ll have to kill you Don’t ask don’t tell before ghost face pops up to heckle them with the throat flute for officer Andrews these guys were never given much personality to work with as characters But at least they’re able to beef up the body count Officer Richard survives his initial bout with ghost face and pops up to shoot him but ghost face turns him into a hood ornament drives Recklessly through the street eventually crashing into some pipes that impaled a cop through his head It’s a surprisingly gory kill for this film with Richards twitching as he died And I’ve got to give the movie credit for having such a graphic death Maybe randy was right about the increased score sidney and Hayley tear through the police car mash and crawl over the passed out ghost face To get out of the car not sure why they didn’t take the opportunity to just choke ghost face to death or something right there
But they get out and start running to safety before sydney determines to turn back and find out who it is when she gets there She finds the car empty and ghostface pops up behind haley stabbing her in the chest and dropping her leg a time You just don’t want to be friends with Sidney Prescott in these movies. It’s basically certain death Sydney’s alright, though She runs off and Ghostface gets tired I guess she makes her way back to the theater where she finds Derek strung up and passed out tuckered out by all that hashtag Greek life stuff ghostface shows up and reveals that he is Mickey You know the character you haven’t seen since literally that cafeteria scene 45 minutes earlier, so yeah That’s kind of lame Mickey tries to indict Derek as his partner in crime Causing sydney to hesitate cutting him down and then Mickey makes it feel super bad by shooting Derek in the chest It’s kind of a bummer that most of the kills in these movies are just stabbings and shootings but I can’t appreciate the psychological damage That mickey did to sidney right there mickey goes on the standard killer tell-all wrath saying how he wants to be caught so he can Blame it on the movies and get famous from the trial these days it’s all about The trial Derek’s body is struck from the stage Revealing that there’s a second killer and out walks Gayle who is not the second killer guys don’t be stupid instead It’s debby salt when Sydney immediately recognizes In other words that lady is really mud Yep, her motives a lot simpler than Mickey’s to kill my son. That’s right classic Pamela voorhees like revenge She shows off her crazy a little more by shooting mickey a couple of times who as he’s falling down shoots gallon the gut causing Her to stage dive into a table Debbie goes over her whole plan to frame Mickey as the sole murderer here before Sidney hits her With a beer bottle and gets away, she takes an axe to a bunch of ropes behind stage essentially attacking Mrs. Lummis with college theater production design, there’s a big Ol ruckus on stage with swinging lights and fake flickering flames before some cardboard Brick stock Mrs. Lummis down and Bury her she’s not done yet though popping out to attack sidney for another round and actually getting pretty close to stabbing Her before cotton weary shows up and holds both of them at gunpoint Debbie pleads with her crazy eyes and tries to turn cotton against sidney but cindy knows how to win over Cotton’s heart bet you that Dinosaur interview is looking real good right about now Hear it Done can’t be Diane Sawyer Deb Cotton shoots, Mrs. Lummis, and this actually does kill her if you couldn’t tell by Laurie metcalf exquisite dead body face right there That’s a decade of roseanne acting paying off in a big way still the survivors are a little concerned now is Mac, and rightfully so since Mickey pops up like a whirling dervish before the lady Shoot the shit out of him finally killing him for real and giving us our tenth and final killed the movie Sorry Mickey if you had played dead a little bit longer you might have been able to just sneak out of there after they left Just to be safe Sidney puts one more bullet straight into Debbie’s forehead. I’m glad you’re safe Years did but I am a little concerned about that kind of overkill Once again the movie ends with Dewey alive and wheeled out on a stretcher this time gale going with him instead of filing a report Sidney directs a gaggle of reporters over to cotton to give him the fame he so desperately Desires then walks off into the quad content with a job well done in a pretty solid seat warm What do you say we get to the numbers? Ten people died in scream two three more than in the original So I guess that rule about higher body count held true six of the victims were male and four of them female Giving us a bit more balanced gender Distribution than in scream one with the runtime of two hours flat we got to kill on average every 12 minutes Which is also a bit more frequent than in the original. I’ll give the Golden Chainsaws an officer Richard You didn’t have much of a character But his depth was so much more graphic than anyone elses in the film the little twitching almost makes me feel for the guy and the various angles with Kiya from Just drive home the Fantastic practical effect dull machete for Leymah skill goes to daring pretty hard to get more Unimaginative than a single slug to the chap and there you have it released in 1997 Scream 2 is the surprisingly solid Follow-up to the genre changing original with everyone in the cast and crew excited to make it despite some frantic production issues next up We’ll be looking at Scream 3 which had even more production problems and was not so solid of a sequel But until then I’m james de genève this has been the kill count hey guys Thank God for washing the kill count for Scream – like always I want to thank bloody disgusting for continuing to post my videos on their site I also want to thank Patrons Hulk O 509 and Nathan Smith if you want to be a patron and support me in this channel so that I can release more content for You more frequently check out my patreon at dead meet james.

  2. Cotton confronting sidney in the library is brilliant. His tone and his movements are similar to how the killer would talk on the phone and act and ahes noticing all of it and freaking out

  3. YES! My apple account is American so I can watch this on my apple products since it’s not available in Canada! Beat the system!

  4. Agamemnon is a prequel to the Illiad. In order for the Greeks to set sail, Agamemnon has to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia to the gods. They do, and it sparks off a revenge plot where her mom kills her husband in revenge, then gets killed by her son.

    The play is meant to foreshadow that Billy's mother will go after Sydney as revenge for killing her son, but will ultimately die.

  5. Hey, I’m in Canada and I can finally watch this video! 😆 It was blocked for at least a year; it already blocked when I discovered this channel 😒

  13. Hi! I know I'm a little late, but since you asked about that guy giving Sydney his fraternity letters, I thought I would let you know about that tradition since I'm in Greek Life myself. The practice is known as Lavaliering, and it can be considered a really big deal, even if it is portrayed very weirdly in this film. Basically when a guy lavaliers a girl, it is a step before engagement, and is saying that he loves that girl just as much as his fraternity. It usually involves different ceremonies as well, first, sometimes the fraternity will have a ceremony for the brother when he decides he wants to lavalier the girl, and then if she accepts and is in a sorority then she can't announce that she has been lavaliered till after an announcement ritual with her sorority. It's considered a very big deal in Greek life, but I don't think to many fraternities would haze for that, they might kid around with the guy, but for the most part it is just considered a happy occasion of them taking a step forward in their relationship. Hope this Helps!

  14. Tatum: "Hey Sid, just think, if they ever make a movie about you, who's going to play you?"
    Sidney: "I shutter to think."
    Dewey: "I see you as a young Meg Ryan, myself."
    Sidney: "Thanks Dewey. With my luck, they'd cast Tori Spelling."
    I find this to be very amusing.

  15. Me personally would have been ok if Dewey died instead of Randy. I just felt sometimes Dewey was so useless ……

  16. At around fifty-one minutes) The rules for a horror movie sequel as stated by Randy (Jamie Kennedy) are: 1. The death total is always greater. 2. The murder scenes are always much more elaborate, with more blood and gore. The third rule to surviving a sequel was cut from the movie, but appears in its trailer, "And number three, never, ever under any circumstance, assume that the killer is dead."

    The longest running time for a Scream movie.

    Randy (Jamie Kennedy) calls Mickey (Timothy Olyphant) "The freaky Tarantino film student", a reference to famous writer and director Quentin Tarantino

    Before the killer calls Gale's phone, her assistant says someone named "Bob" wants to talk to her, a reference to producer Bob Weinstein, who is the brother of fellow producer Harvey Weinstein, who both co-founded Miramax.

    Towards the end, Gale (Courteney Cox) is wearing a white shirt and black pants which are the colors of the Killer's costume.

    At around fifty-two minutes) Randy's speech about "Mrs. Voorhees was a terrific serial killer" was a hint. (Mrs. Voorhees was from Friday the 13th (1980), and was a vengeful mother, just like Mrs. Loomis). When Debbie introduced herself as a local anchor woman (at around nineteen minutes) and Gale says, "I thought you looked familiar", that was another hint. (This was a hint that she was concealing her identity, since Gale was actually recognizing her because of her participation in the murder trial and the events in Scream (1996), not for being an anchor).

    The plot twist is very similar to Friday the 13th (1980). The killer turns out to be the mother of Billy Loomis, the main antagonist of Scream (1996). In Friday the 13th (1980), it is the mother who is the killer, and in the sequels, it is the son who comes to avenge his mother's death. In the Scream franchise, it is the son who is the killer, and it is the mother who comes to avenge her son's death.

    So that’s the facts about this movie

  18. With regards to movie deaths in general, I actually don't think people bleed from their mouths unless the heart or lungs are involved in the injury…

  19. Here’s something to get u thinking, in the beginning when there watching stab and it’s showing what happened in the beginning of scream one it shows all the details like her under the window and the popcorn etc but one question how do they know the play by play of each sene and the details🧐
