Revealing mistake: When the killer surprises Sid after she's come in from outside and locked the door, he tries to stab her with his left hand, misses, and hits the door right next to the chain in closeup. In wide shot (very quick shot) when Sid legs it, look at the killer and you can see he's holding a very badly bent knife in his right hand, nowhere near the chain. (00:27:55)

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: At the beginning of the movie as Ghostface chases Drew Barrymore the killer is wearing a different style of mask and even has a shiny silver material rather than black. As the killer then sits on top of her then choking her, it is the more recognisable mask.

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.
