Scream

Audio problem: When Sidney comes running to the house and she sees Dewey come out with the knife in his back she screams "Dewey!" but her mouth says "no!" (01:23:45)

Audio problem: When Gale is talking to Kenny the cameraman before she goes off to investigate the abandoned car with Dewey her face is in a close up. She can be clearly heard uttering the forbidden phrase "I'll be right back." However her mouth can clearly be seen saying "keep watching." (01:11:25)

Audio problem: When Gale starts driving away after she hits Randy with the phone, Kenny's body falls on her windshield. At this part the camera pans to a shot overhead and Gale says "Kenny, I'm sorry, but get off my f***ing windshield!". Her mouth is not moving as she says this.

Audio problem: When Tatum throws the first beer bottle at the killer, she yells out, "F***er," but her mouth doesn't move. (01:04:05)

Audio problem: When they are having the conversation about Basic Instinct at the fountain after Sidney has been questioned, Randy's lips don't match when he says: "That was an ice pick, not exactly the same thing." (00:19:20)

Suggested correction: They do match, but at the same time he's chewing a grape so it looks like he's speaking when he's chewing.

Audio problem: When Steve is on the porch and gagged, the killer instructs Casey to turn off the lights. Steve shakes his head and lets out some muffled 'No's. When the lights go out he says one last 'No' but you can still tell he isn't saying it. Even though his mouth is gagged, he makes no body movements to correlate with his shouts like he did before, especially not his jaw. Despite it being dark you can still tell. (00:06:10)

Audio problem: At the party, Gale places a portable small camera on top of the TV to spy on the teens there. Later, the teens are watching the Halloween movie on this very TV and talking loudly. The movie is playing with sound when they are watching it. However, when we see Gale and Kenny's perspective as they are watching the feedback, they can hear the teens talking. However, despite the camera sitting right on top of the TV, it doesn't pick up the audio from the movie playingr. This mistake is repeated not long after when Ghostface is sneaking up behind the one teen left behind on the couch who's watching the movie at an even louder volume.

Audio problem: After Sidney and Billy have their fight in the hallway after he's released, the scene cuts to Mr. Himbry reprimanding two students wearing the Ghostface mask. He takes some scissors and starts to cut them up and waves the scissors around. The entire time, the scissors are making very loud, very distracting and unrealistic "SHING" sounds like metal swords sliding against each other in a hallway. These scissors simply would not make such obnoxious sounds with the simple movements he's doing with them. They even make the sound as he's cutting through the mask, which if anything would have muffled the sounds they made even more.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Sidney's dad falls out of the closet, if you look closely you can see the hands of a crewmember who was in there too, pushing items out after him.

More quotes from Scream

Trivia: When Sidney and Tatum are talking on the porch, Sidney says, "...If I'm wrong, that means the killer may still be out there..." Tatum replies, "Don't go there, Sid. You're starting to sound like some Wes Carpenter flick." This is an inside joke about "Scream" director Wes Craven. He often jokes about how people always confuse him with "Halloween" director John Carpenter. (00:54:10)

More trivia for Scream

Question: Is it true that near the end of the movie, Skeet Ulrich really cries out in pain (not acting), because Neve Campbell accidentally hit him in an area where he was once injured in real life?

Answer: This is according to IMDb: When Sidney comes out of the closet and stabs Billy with an umbrella, the stunt man was supposed to hit a pad on Skeet Ulrich's chest. The first hit got the pad but the second one slipped and hit him in the chest (you can see it in his reaction). Wes Craven kept it in because of its authenticity.
