Scream

Factual error: At the end when they are loading Dewey into the ambulance on the stretcher, it is standard procedure to put the patient neck brace when they receive any type of unknown injuries (stab wounds) to their back as Dewey did - it was notably absent.

Factual error: During the scene where the group of friends is watching Halloween, one boy says something like "Why do they do that? The blood is all wrong. It's too red." The problem is, during that part of the movie, no blood is shown or even implied. Bob is just pinned against the wall.

Factual error: Gale Weathers points the gun at Billy and tries to shoot him, but the trigger doesn't pull back. This is explained by Billy when he says that the safety was on. Fine. But that gun is a Beretta 92F, and on a Beretta 92F when the safety is on, the trigger WILL pull back, but no round will fire.

Factual error: After Gale talks to Sidney and Sidney seems doubtful of Cotton Weary's guilt, Kenny the Cameraman says to Gale, "Do you wanna go live?". Gale is an anchor/reporter for a tabloid-like show called "Top Story" (Sort of like "Current Affair", "Inside Edition", or "Hard Copy"). She does not work for CBS News or NBC News, etc. She does not have the power to "go live" and interrupt regular television programming. (00:41:55)

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: A small thing that I was curious about: when Billy and Sidney are in the police station, they are in two rooms/areas that are only separated by a glass wall. In real life, would a suspect be kept so close to the person they are accused of attacking?

Answer: No, this is completely incorrect from the film makers. US police stations by law have to have an interrogation cell deliberately so as to avoid the accused person intimidating witnesses or the victim, as billy does to Sydney. Even if the interrogation cell were being used when Billy is brought into the station, he would then be put in a holding cell to wait his turn - they categorically would not just allow him to sit in the public, non guarded part of the station near the accuser.
