Cotton Weary (Liev
Schriber) is stuck in Los Angeles traffic
and is in the business after surviving
that horrible attack previously but he
receives a call from another killer using
various voices and is at his girlfriends
house and about to kill her in which he
finds some way to get there and save her
on time only to be killed as well.
Then a big studio decides to be in
production with a 'Stab
3' sue to all of this
and Deputy Dewey (David Arquette) is
working for this film. However, Gale
Weathers (Courney Cox) spies on him since
he is linked to an actress Jennifer
Jolie (Parker Posey) who plays her part
in the film and in the script she gets
Then this killer kills one of the
actresses Sarah Darling (Jenny
McCarthy) in which the film is ceased and
everyone tries to stick together in order
to stay alive.
Meanwhile Sidney (Neve Campbell) is
working at home and in hiding at a house
out in the country and has nightmares on
her Mom returning as a ghost along with
this killer tracking her down. She does
get a call from this caller and has no
choice but to play his game.
This sequel wasn't
as good as the first two but still fairly
good but this time the killer calling
someone is during a traffic jam in Los
Angeles in which it doesn't seem creepy
at all. However with what the caller says
he's going to do to this person's
girlfriend if he doesn't make it on time
which would be tough since that kind of
traffic can take a long time to get
through and it's suspenseful to see what
this person does in order to make it home
on time in which it looks like that a car
accident could happen.
good shots on the Hollywood mountains
along with some helicopters rolling by
and then a nice shot on Cotton Weary driving in his car in a
traffic jam talking on his cell phone and
later receiving a call from the killers
voice as well as good shots on him
trying to drive through the jam along
with shots on the vehicle going through
the traffic in which it looks like an
accident will happen.
There's a nice shot closing in ona woman in
a shower which looked creepy that this
killer was going to enter and kill her.
There's also nice haunting moments with
nightmare sequences of Sidney's dead
mother which seems very different
compared to any other of the Scream flicks and quite dark and spooky like as
well as her having nightmares on the
ghost faced killer tracking her at her
home too which offers some frights too.
Of course we get into the Universal
Studios side of stuff with people already
making another sequel since another
murder by this ghostfaced killer had
occurred as well as making up a story on
some of these real life characters being
killed off but yet they're still
surviving. Alot of fact based novels or
other movies who make fact based shows
based after their oiriginal story often
do this so they can make money. There's a
ton of dark comedy used in the studios
with primadonna's and obnoxious producers
and directors trying to get stuff done
and are losing their cool which seemed
interesting to watch too.
There's of course murders at the studio
as well as the killer hiding behind some
of the ghost face costumes which looks
clever for a hideout and of course one of
the actresses hides there after receiving
a threatening call which shows very
little intelligence too.
There's a good moment with Gale Weathers entering the studios and John Milton acting obnoxious towards
her being there as well as Jennifer Joley spotting her and trying to
talk to her as well as a good bitchy
conversation between the two of them along with a good argumentive discussion between Gale and Deputy Dewey which
all came together nicely and very
dysfuntional looking with issues on a
When a phone rings you do wonder if it's
the killer since this time he uses a new
device making the calls sound like that
exact same person which keeps you in
There's many cameos in the film which
made this one look quite exciting see who
you can pick out including characters
from Jay and Silent Bob in which I found
that just a little too corny.
A good shot on Sidney sleeping on the couch as well as a nice
spooky night shot on her mother appearing
ghostly from a field slowly entering up
to a window and tapping on it with good
ghostly expression and then Sidney waking up and looking at her emotionally.
Then a nice fast shot on the ghostfaced
killer crashing through the window. This scene was very worthy.
Also this caller plays a little game with
Sidney and others surrounding her in
which I bet this is what inspired the
filmmakers to do Saw
since this was a game about surviving as
well as rescuing her friends too. Plus it
shows a videotape of someone who was
murdered in the previous sequel talking
about what started the madness of the
murders like you see in any trilogy as to
why this killer will do what he does in a
It's also interesting seeing this killer
fax some scripts on what's going to
happen to them in which looks also
cleverly written in the film as well as
the killer trying to attack Sidney in a
studio house which can lead to deadly
A good moment with supporting
Sarah Darling talking
on a speaker phone and griping about her
role which looked quite impressive as one
of those primadonna's complaining and
then the killers voice threatening her in
which the moments looked slightly
cheesy with her freaking out but a good
shot on her trying to get away and hide
in a dressing room full of ghost face
costumes along with a nice dark shot on
the ghost faced killer stepping out on
one of the costumes with a nice close up
shot on him pulling out his blade.
A good intense moment with Jennifer getting intense smoking a cigarette while
talking to both Gale and Dewey which looked highly energised.
A great scene with Jennifer punching Dewey and then Gale punching her in which the situations surrounding this scene
looked energised and slapstick like.
Good moment with Roman Bridger acting drunk and tearing up
pages with Jennifer acting paranoid
about stuff which seems impressive.
There's great dark shots and moments with Jennifer, Roman, Gale and Dewey taking pages from a
fax machine on a script titling what's
going to happen next in which everyone
does well by getting scared on what to do
to survive. There's also a good moment
with Roman entering another room
to pick up a fax turning on his lighter
with a perfect outside shot on the house
exploding which looked spectacular.
A good moment with Detective Mark
a kitchen area with a ghost faced killer
stabbing him which has a bit of a jumping
moment which looked strongly done as
well as him fighting with this killer
which also looked fairly good as well as
some good tense camera shots on this.
There's also a good moment with Sidney talking on the phone as her job doing the
crisis line and a nice close up shot on
where the call is coming from and a nice
close up shot on her close to tears with
her getting upset in which the call
sounds like it's her mother.
Nice argumentive discussions with all of them
sticking together so they will survive.
There's good shots on them going down
some stairs and figuring stuff out. Then
a nice conversation between them and Bianca smoking a
cigarette when they encounter her in
which this was smoothly done.
There's lots of great action with Sidney, Gale, Dewey and Jennifer starting to accuse John of what's going on in his office
about the deaths which looked strongly
A great moment with Sidney entering the studio with a nice shot on a
swimming pool and then the killer talking
to her on her cell manipulating her to
throw the gun away and to scan herself
with good close up shots on her doing
Also a great moment with Sidney shooting the ghost faced killer with him
falling down and then untying both Gale and Dewey with a good camera
shot looking down on Gale herself spotting the killer gone as well as a
good approach by Detective Mark
Kincaid and telling her to put the
gun down in a good fashion that he's
trying to act innocent but making you wonder if you
should trust him or not.
Great suspenseful moments with Sidney and the killer running through the studio
house and trying to trick him with great
camera shots looking up down and sideways
during the chasing moments on all of
this. There's also great fighting
scene's with Sidney during these
scene's too which looked terrific. When this
killer reveals himself which is a new
twist like the previous films in which
this time almost reminds me of similar
chemistry used in Halloween.
During the very ending a door was almost
open for a sequel in which you will see
what I mean since the ending does involve
a door blowing open.
Bottom line is this film is a little more
funny than scary which turned me off a
bit but yet it is still good since it
explains in the end as to why these
people have been stalking Sidney. I can't
wait to see part 4 coming in 2011 as
apparently Sidney gets killed off.
The acting is
quite good still. David Arquette
(Deputy Dewey) still brings on a good
charm to his role and knew on how to act
anxious with all that's happening. He
still brings the odd humor in it too.
Plus was not bad by being aggressive.
Neve Campbell (Sidney) really
brought on some great emotions with her
role like she always does in the film as
well as getting aggressive perfectly. She
knew her craft by acting physical and
tough too. Hats off to her as always.
Courtney Cox (Gale Weathers) still
knew on how to act bitchy as well as
getting straight to the point with
things. She was another tough
cookie in the film showing more of her
physical side to her too. Her energy was
Parker Posey (Jennifer Jolie) really
brought on a great hyperactive attitude
as someone portraying an actress whom is
a little messed up and not easy to work
with in which she does this all
incredibly well. Her work was in great
taste with a ton of energy and
aggressions too. I always liked her
portraying these types since I saw her in Dazed & Confused.
Dempsey (Detective Mark
Kincaid) was a perfect obnoxious one in
the flick in which you feel like hating
as he does this all well with his
manipulative attidue as well as doing
great by being demanding to top it all
off. A typical bullying detective.
Scott Foley (Roman
Bridger) knew how to portray a drunken
producer and someone you don't want to
mess with either. He put alot of
negativivty into his role which is a good
thing since he was meant to be this way.
He was definetely a fine character actor.
Deon Richmond (Tyson Fox) had a
great slick attitude as one of the
members at the studio and really showed a
nice energetic and outgoing performance
in his role. I knew him off the spot
while watching this show since he played
Kenny in The Cosby Show "BUUUUUD!!!!"
It's great to see Lance Henriksen (John
Milton) returning in some bigger budget
films again as an obnoxious filmmaker
businessman. He brings out alot of great
characterisitcs with this role making his
part very believeable with how he treats
everyone around him which isn't a pretty
site if something goes wrong as well as
him being the perfect key role as a
possible suspect too.
Emily Mortimer (Angelina Tyler)
brought some silly humor with her
character as someone who's an obseesed
fan of the people who encountered the
killings and just being annoying with
them. She also does great by acting
paranoid too. Her performance was high
strung. It worked though in which she
seems to know how to be like this.
Now for the cameos:
Jenny McCarthy (Sarah Darling)
really knew on how to act like a
primadonna and complain about her part in
which she showed a great negative
attitude to her character bringing it to
full life. I found her to be one of the
best cameo actresses in the flick. Well
her role was a bit bigger than a cameo
since she was credited as a special
appearance but you know what I mean.
Of course I loved Carrie Fisher
(Bianca) in her role discussing some of
the cases as she brings out alot of nice
characteristics in her voice while
talking about these situations as well as
in jokes on Star Wars. Her cameo was a
definete classic and still knows how to
do a good job with her acting skills.
There's many different
blood stabbing scene's throughout the
killing of this movie with lots of
A throat is slit
Of course a bullet in the head
He's back again composing
alot of heavy metal clanging and drum
thumps, chanting sounds as well as the
same classical horn and violin playing
which still works very powerfully all
done by none but other than
Jennifer: Where, Nancy Drew wants to know where.
Phone Voice: Hello?
Sidney: Um, Who's calling?
Phone Voice: Um, Who's calling?
Sidney: Look Dewey, Gail, whoever, I'll have to call you back because I only hear myself.
Phone Voice: I only hear you too, Sid.
Sarah Darling: Has there been another goddamn re-write? How the fuck are we supposed to learn our lines when there's a new script every 15 minutes?
Phone Voice: as Roman: It's not just a new script, it's a new movie.
Sarah Darling: What movie?
Phone Voice: My movie. And it's called: "Sarah gets skewered like a fucking pig!"
Phone Voice: Still in character... Sarah?
Tom: Hey. It's the real Gale Weathers.
Gale: Real from top to bottom.
Sidney: What do you know about trilogies?
Mark: All I know is that in the third one, all bets are off.
Gale Weathers: Hey, are you...?
Bianca Burnette: No.
Jennifer Jolie: But you look just...
Bianca Burnette: ...like her? I've been hearing it all my life.
Jennifer Jolie: It's uncanny.
Bianca Burnette: I was up for Princess Leia. I was this close. So, who gets it? The one who sleeps with George Lucas.
Gale Weathers: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to bring up a sore subject for you.
Bianca Burnette: Sure, you didn't. None of them did. So, how can I help you? Or do you want me to tell you who you look like?
