Scream

A teenage girl and her boyfriend are brutally slaughtered by a mysterious killer in a Halloween costume. Another girl, Sydney, is nearly killed, and a reporter, Gail Weathers, suspects that it was the one responsible for the rape and murder of Sydney's mother a year earlier. Sydney's boyfriend, Billy becomes the prime suspect. When he is released, Sydney and all of her friends go to a party, at their friend Randy's house, where they drink and watch scary movies. They are guarded from the killer by Gail, and a police officer named Dewey. All of the teens who aren't drunk go off to see the body of their principal, who was killed by the same murderer, leaving only 5 people at the party. After a sexual encounter with Billy, Billy is stabbed by the killer. Sydney finds Dewey with a knife in his back, and Gail gets lost in the forest. Billy turns up alive, but Sydney realises that there are two murderers. Her best friend's boyfriend, Stuart, and Billy are the killers. Billy shoots Randy Billy kills Stuart, and Gail comes in with a gun, and kills Billy. Randy turns up alive. Dewey turns out to be alive, and the only teens alive are Sydney and Randy.

Revealing mistake: As Drew Barrymore is running from the killer outside he stabs her. If you look closely it is very easy to tell it is a rubber knife, because you see it bend off of her. (00:10:20)

[Everyone jeers.]
Randy: Big no-no! Big no-no!

Randy: Rule number two, you can never drink or do drugs. [Everyone clacks their beers together.] It's the sin factor. An extension of number one. And number three, never, ever, under any circumstances say "I'll be right back." Because you won't be back.

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.
