Sydney Prescott is having a rough time lately: she's still getting over the brutal rape and murder of her mother a year ago and now one of her friends has been murdered by a psychopathic serial killer, who harasses his victims with terrifying phone calls, before stabbing them to death. Soon Sydney is receiving similar phone calls, quizzing her on the arcane details of such films as Friday the 13th and Prom Night, and is attacked by the same masked maniac. With her father missing, she has hardly anyone on her side except her best friend Tatum and Tatum's brother Dewey, a half-bright cop. As for the murderer, it could be any number of people: Syd's father; her cute but overly intense boyfriend Billy; Tatum's goofball boyfriend Stuart; or Randy, who works at the local video store and seems to like horror movies just a little too much. The slasher continues to strike as Sydney’s high school is gripped with terror but who in Sydney’s life is responsible for the horror.
