Scream

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)

Revealing mistake: After Gale backs the van up, and Kenny's body falls on the windshield, they cut to a shot where Gale is driving away, and Kenny's body is on the roof of the van. When she starts driving you can clearly see Kenny lift his head into the air to look forward, even though he's dead.

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)

Revealing mistake: When Sidney and Stu are fighting in the living room and they both trip over the couch, Stu's stunt double is visible and wearing a wig.

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.

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

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.

Revealing mistake: When they shoot the killer at the end, the hole in his head is there before the gun goes off. You can see the hole in his head for about a frame before the flash of the gun goes off and his head drops. The body is also clearly a dummy. The scene then cuts and they show him being shot again. Once more, the wound is already there.

Suggested correction: First, the hole is covered, and not exposed before the flash, and second, this is obviously real actor, he even blinks. Both things are just extremely obvious, so the entry is plain strange.

Revealing mistake: When Sidney is attacked by the killer for the first time (in her house), she is knocked to the floor and you can see she is played by a stunt double. (00:28:39)

[Everyone jeers.]

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: 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.
