Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, while the carnage isn't as extreme as it was in the first SCREAM, bloodshed and stabbings are still abundant. So is foul language, and a portrayal of a college campus environment as a place where nobody ever seems to be caught studying, just partying and pledging fraternities and sororities.

Sexual Content

Characters refer to sex, though not as often as in the last film. Two police officers are sniggeringly suggested to be homosexuals.


Vicious stabbings, close-range shootings, and hand-to-hand fighting.


Abundant profanity.

Social Behavior

Tough, plucky central figure Sidney is, as always, the most normal among a cast of shifty, possible mass-murder suspects. David Arquette's noble but goofy deputy Dewey is a certifiably nice guy.


Primarily references to other horror movies.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alcohol is very popular on this campus, who knew?
