Scream to Scream, Scene by Scene: SCENE 15 of Scream 2 (0:43:31-0:44:53)

In this project I attempt to review the entire Scream trilogy scene by scene in chronological order. Heavy spoilers and gore throughout!

SCENE 15 of Scream 2
Length: 1min 22secs
Primary Characters: Sidney Prescott, Derek, Officer Andrews (Philip Pavel) and Officer Richards (Chris Doyle)
Pop Culture References:
  • None

One thing I'm noticing with Scream 2 is that there are a lot of shorter scenes. Perhaps that was a trick by Craven to keep the pace punchy, especially since this one is longer than the first by a hefty margin, they probably needed it. Also since none of the new characters are quite as enjoyable as Tatum, who I could watch for the entire length of War & Peace. Doubled.

I normally wouldn't consider them "prominent characters" in this scene, but one of this scene's major points is to show how these two detectives are "attached at the hip" to Sidney. They get their moment in the sun later on, as you're no doubt aware.

"You are concerned with my personal well-being and not with trusting me or anything, right?"

To quote Grandpa Simpson; "a little from column A, a little from column B."

One of the secret hidden joys of Scream 2 - although I have curiously never even attempted to test it out on other Jerry O'Connell films - is watching the abnormal frequency with with O'Connell blinks. Seriously. In this one static shot that runs from 0:44:23-0:44:33 (in which he says the above dialogue) he blinks 12 times! That's more than one blink a second! Settle down, Jerry!
