Synopsis: Two years after the events of Scream, Sidney Prescott and Randy are attending Windsor college. They are trying to get on with their lives...Until a new Ghostface killing spree begins. With the help of Dewey and Gale, Sidney must find out who's behind the murders. As the body count goes up, the list of suspects goes down.


In this case it was very difficult. Maybe this was for a variety of reasons. The first one did so well and it seemed like there was a lot of pressure on everybody to do something similar. I found that there was a much more conservative approach to the music this time. The freshness and originality that I brought to Scream itself, which made the score so great in that, kind of stiffed my here because they wanted me to take very conservative approaches to scenes. Like following very closely the temp tracking, which I didn't do in Scream. They had test screenings and somebody in the audience when asked what they thought about the movie said "I guess I like the music". They took that very seriously and I was little bit tied. I did what I wanted in the score, but I felt a little bit constrained. The cues that came out really well are the ones that I never auditioned for anybody because I didn't want them to say no to me. It was tough like that. Wes was really good about listening to what I had and understanding it, but there was a whole committee of people, it didn't seem like it was just Wes I was answering to.
