Trivia

Neve Campbell's contract allowed her to be on the set for just twenty days, which is why Sidney has less screentime than in the other films. As a result of her role being reduced, more emphasis was put on the supporting characters. See more »

Goofs

(at around 3 mins) In the opening sequence, we see Cotton's girlfriend Christina step out of the shower. In the next shot, she is wearing perfect makeup. See more »

* *1/2 out of 4.
3 June 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

Disappointing sequel to the mega hit series finds Neve Campbell forced out of hiding after a ghost faced killer starts murdering people in Hollywood and leaving pictures of her mother at the crime scene. Fast paced, scary, and exciting, but it simply doesn't have the charm, humor, and originality of the first two. The first two presented violence with a wink and had you screaming & laughing at the same time, all that is left this time around is carnage. The cast doesn't have none of the appeal that the previous entries did.

Rated R; Graphic Violence & Profanity.
