S.1 E.15 - Scream 2 (1997)

Oh Jesus Christ, will the internet never leave Scream 2 alone? First there was a script leak before they even started filming. Then an extra brought a camcorder into the opening scene and filmed the whole thing. Then another script leak that made them change the ending. And now, the final indignity, some moron named Patrick Ripoll is gonna release a commentary track and jabber on over the whole thing?

Is there no justice in the world?

There is no justice, there's just us. And what we have for you this week is a dive into the most frenzied shoot of Wes Craven's career, a movie with a tortured production that nonetheless managed to win over crowds and critics alike. A movie that dared to ask: Can a sequel be better than the original?

The answer is: Yes, it's especially common in the horror genre, but not this time.

Still, while Scream 2 might, at times, feel more like Scream: The TV Show (before there was a tv show) there's still plenty of fun to be had and, at one point, Portia De Rossi talks about giving head "harmonica style".

Also, Patrick takes a query from a metal-head and examines the relationship between horror and heavy metal music. No, he hasn't seen Deathgasm yet, but he is a little interested in it.
