Scream 2 VHS, DVD, Blu ray, and Laser Disc Releases

Scream 2 didn't have near the convoluted release history that the first Scream film did, but after completing that list I knew I'd have to tackle the sequels.


Scream 2 Demo/Screener VHS (1998)
 
Screener tapes were often sent to video stores as a marketing tool. The studios would send out a copy of the movie while it was still in theaters (or just leaving theaters) to convince video store owners to buy copies of the film. The screeners were often shared with video store employees in order to get them excited about what was to come soon in hopes that their passion and excitement would rub off onto the customers.

This is a four disc set that combines the 1998 Collector's Series discs for all three Scream films along with a fourth disc that is full of bonus features mostly relating to the first film. The only additional feature that discusses Scream 2 is the Behind the Scream documentary, which takes a quick overview of all three films in the franchise (up to that point).


Scream DVD Triple Pack (2009)
 

Theatrical R-Rated Version

This includes the 1998 Collector’s Series bundled alongside the Scream 2 and 3 Collector's Series. There are no additional features or extras.



Scream DVD Triple Feature (2011)

Theatrical R-Rated Version

-Audio Commentary with Wes Craven, Marianna Maddalena, and Patrick Lussier
-Two Deleted Scenes with Optional Audio Commentary with Wes Craven, Marianna Maddalena, and Patrick Lussier
-Promotional Featurette (7 Minutes)

-Music Videos: Master P's "Scream" and The Kottonmouth Kings "Suburban Life"
-Theatrical Trailer and TV Spots
 
The Scream DVD Triple Feature from 2011 is identical to the 2009 Triple Pack. It uses the same 1998 Collector's Series DVD with the same extras. The only major difference is the packaging which this time combines all three movies into one standard size amaray case.

 
Scream 1-4 DVD Pack (2018)

Theatrical R-Rated Version
Extras:
-Probably the same as the Collector's Edition, but I'm not 100% sure.
 
The Scream 1-4 Pack is the latest in Scream DVD releases having been released in January 2018. It's the only release in the United States to include all four Scream films in one collection. No extra features are listed on the back of the box and I haven't been able to confirm exactly what discs are in this particular set, but I'd assume its still the same Collector's Edition disc that was used in all the other releases. I don't see anyone going out of their way to make a new Scream DVD in 2018 for a budget set.

 
Scream 2 Blu-Ray (2018)

Theatrical R-Rated Version
Extras:
-Audio Commentary with Wes Craven, Marianna Maddalena, and Patrick Lussier
-Two Deleted Scenes with Optional Audio Commentary with Wes Craven, Marianna Maddalena, and Patrick Lussier
-Promotional Featurette (7 Minutes)
-Outtakes
-Music Videos: Master P's "Scream" and The Kottonmouth Kings "Suburban Life"
-Theatrical Trailer and TV Spots

Nothing new here, we get the same exactly SD extras found on the Collector's Series DVD.


Scream 5 Film Set Blu Ray (2011)
 
Theatrical R-Rated Version
Extras:
-Audio Commentary with Wes Craven, Marianna Maddalena, and Patrick Lussier
-Two Deleted Scenes with Optional Audio Commentary with Wes Craven, Marianna Maddalena, and Patrick Lussier
-Promotional Featurette (7 Minutes)
-Outtakes
-Music Videos: Master P's "Scream" and The Kottonmouth Kings "Suburban Life"
-Theatrical Trailer and TV Spots
-Documentary: Still Screaming (90 minutes)
-Documentary: Scream: The Inside Story (90 minutes)

This Blu ray set includes the same disc included in the Scream 2 Blu ray. Also included are Scream and Scream 3, and two documentaries found on separate discs (thus the Five Film set title.) Scream 4 is not included and I'm sure this poorly worded title has fooled people into thinking they were buying all four films.

The two documentaries (Still Screaming and Scream: The Inside Story) are not found on any other release outside of this package and barely discuss Scream 2 at all. It's worth noting that this is the only other content of any sort that looks at Scream 2 in anyway.

Missing is the thirty minute documentary from the "Ultimate Scream Edition."
