Scream

Continuity mistake: At the very end, when Sid finds out who the killers are, they are all standing in the kitchen. When Billy and Stu stab each other take a look at the blood stain on the left side of Stu's jumper. It starts around his shoulder and vertically goes down towards his waist. When Sid is fighting him in the lounge she gets up and goes behind the TV. In the shot looking straight down on Stu from a birds eye view, notice the blood stain is now horizontally across his stomach. You'll have to look closely for this one.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Stu and Sidney begin tumbling (right before he gets killed) there is a bench in the background with a bag of ruffle potato chips facing upwards, in the next shot it is lying down.

Revealing mistake: When Stu, Randy and the rest are talking about breasts, Stu looks down a girl's shirt. The girl smacks his shoulder and kind of grins at the camera, as if it wasn't supposed to happen.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Casey is making popcorn, firstly the top of the popcorn that she tears off and places next to the stove changes from being folded in half, to later on laying down flat. Secondly Casey picks up a salt shaker and places it by the stove, but this later disappears. (00:01:25 - 00:03:30)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Casey is cooking popcorn on the stove. When she peels the top off, you see her peel the side away from the handle, and she's using her left hand, but when the shot changes, she's using her right hand, and is pulling from the other side. (00:01:15)

Continuity mistake: In the garage, Tatum slams the fridge door into the killers face, the killer knocks the door with his arm, and it opens fully. But in the next wide shot of the killer getting up, the fridge door is closed. (01:03:55)

Continuity mistake: When Skeet is first shot by Gale he crawls backward, but if you look at the ghost face behind him there is no knife there. The next shot there is a knife on top of the ghost face.

2

Revealing mistake: When Ghostface is running after Casey, when he stabs her you can see the knife is a retractable one.

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.

2

Visible crew/equipment: Look closely (you may need widescreen to see it) at the railing when Sidney is walking up the stairs outside in her parent's wooden patio talking to Tatum on the phone. You'll notice a quick boom shadow on the right of the camera as it's backing up. (00:22:25)

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)

Continuity mistake: When Sidney and Tatum arrive at Stu's party, they are dropped off by Dewey. Then the two girls walk to Stu's house. The bags Tatum is carrying are switched when they are walking inside the house (when she says "Catering is here").

Continuity mistake: When Sidney is talking to Tatum and Stu by the lockers, the combination locks she's standing by are black in a closeup, but when a student runs past in a scream costume, she is by lockers with a pink and a turquoise colour lock. (00:40:50)

Continuity mistake: When Sidney is in the bathroom at school, the trash on the floor around the trashcan changes.

Continuity mistake: When Tatum is throwing beer bottles at ghost face in the garage, there is beer and foam all over his costume...until he lands on the stairs behind her. (01:04:10)

2

Continuity mistake: The Halloween scenes in the movie don't match up. For example, Randy is watching the part where JLC first discovers the bodies. About ten movie minutes later in Halloween, she's hiding from Michael Myers in the closet. Then Billy gets the idea to search for Sidney, because that's the scene currently playing. Too much time occurs between scenes for this to occur.

2

Revealing mistake: When Sidney sticks her finger in the wound made when Sidney stabbed Billy with the umbrella, Skeet Ulriches skin pad visibly does not connect with his neck.

2

Continuity mistake: When Stu puts the voice box and phone in Sidney's dad's jacket pocket and lets him fall, when he hits the ground the voice box partly falls out, but then when they show the dad again the voice box is tucked back in.

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)

Question: Why didn't Casey ring the police, after the call when she realied he was taunting and making threats?

Answer: Characters in horror movies are notorious for not doing the most obvious things. It's most likely that she was scared and not thinking straight at receiving numerous threatening phone calls, particularly when she is threatened after hanging up on the killer.

Also, when she told the caller that she was "two seconds away from calling the police", his response was that they'd never make it in time. She also knew he was nearby as he made comments that indicated he could see her. She didn't know it was someone that knew her. She's a teenager and scared, so her judgement was clouded. She reached a point where she believed her only chance was to get away from him by either fighting him or getting out and hiding somewhere outside.
