haley’s review published on Letterboxd:
i was both excited to see this, and also worried since i did have high expectations and there was a small part of me that thought i may be disappointed. thankfully, this was a great installment to my favorite slasher franchise. the new york city setting was so refreshing and they used it well. i will say i was a little disappointed with the killer reveal and it almost made my love for this film completely go away, but it gained my love back with the last few minutes. sam was a total badass and i absolutely loved her, which is surprising considering i could not stand her at all in the previous film. i think it's safe to say that this is now my third favorite scream film.
the (very annoying) guy sitting next to us in the theater thinking he actually has a chance with jenna ortega definitely added to the experience.
