Scream

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.

Randy: There are certain rules one must abide in order to sucuessfully survive a horror movie, rule number one, you can never have sex.
[Everyone jeers.]
Randy: Big no-no! Big no-no!
Stu: I'd be a dead man.
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.
Stu: Hey, I'm gettin' another beer, you want one?
Randy: Yeah, sure.
Stu: [Dramatically.] I'll be right back!
Randy: Yeah, you bent the rules. I'll see you in the kitchen with a knife.

Question: A small thing that I was curious about: when Billy and Sidney are in the police station, they are in two rooms/areas that are only separated by a glass wall. In real life, would a suspect be kept so close to the person they are accused of attacking?

Answer: No, this is completely incorrect from the film makers. US police stations by law have to have an interrogation cell deliberately so as to avoid the accused person intimidating witnesses or the victim, as billy does to Sydney. Even if the interrogation cell were being used when Billy is brought into the station, he would then be put in a holding cell to wait his turn - they categorically would not just allow him to sit in the public, non guarded part of the station near the accuser.
