Scream

Other mistake: When Casey's parents hear her on the phone, the scene shows just the killer with the knife pointing down. When he stabs her the knife quickly moves backwards in the opposite direction.

Other mistake: When Sidney is preparing to go to Tatum's house, she brings several items of clothing downstairs, including a pair of boots, which seem to be knee-length from the way she is holding them to her chest. However later when she is dressing after her session of nooky with Billy, the boots have changed to ankle length. [The clothes that Sidney packed were in the house and she never got them since she left the house after she was attacked and besides the day that she made nooky with Billy was a different day then the day she was attacked.]

Other mistake: After Billy Loomis and Stuart "Stu" Macher are revealed as the villains, they stab each other multiple times to appear as victims. Billy cuts Stu too deep, and Stu begins feeling weak and bleeding profusely from his wounds, showing that he may be dying. When Sidney (in the Ghostface costume) stabs Billy with the umbrella, Stu's rage takes over and he suddenly has the dangerous energy to battle Sidney in the living room. Stu nearly kills Sidney, until she pushes the TV on his head. If Stu was dying in the kitchen, how does he have all that energy to fight Sidney?

Suggested correction: At this point he is fully working on adrenaline. He probably was feeling weak because he realised he might be dying and he saw all that blood and got shocked from it (he is kinda crazy), until his anger took over again. He would have probably collapsed right after, if he avoided getting killed.

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 trivia for Scream

Question: Why did Billy and Stu want to kill Tatum? I've read that she said Stu was bad in bed, but when does she say this in the movie?

Answer: They didn't have anything against Tatum specifically, her death was just necessary for their scary movie plan against Sidney. They also said that anyone who isn't a virgin dies in a scary movie, and we know Tatum wasn't a virgin.

Answer: I don't understand why people are getting hung up on the virgin thing. Sure, there are some movies where someone who isn't a virgin survives. But the common cliche in horror that everyone knows is that sex typically equals death. Doesn't matter if some movies don't follow the cliche... it's still the cliche, and Stu and Billy are operating by the cliches.

In addition to this, Stu and Billy were planning to be the two survivors and make "the sequel." They probably viewed themselves as the main characters. Tatum was one of the "side characters" who would typically be killed.

It's just a TV trope used in the movie.
