Visible crew/equipment: When Casey agrees to play the killer's game she crouches down next to the television and as the killer says "Here's how we play..." you can see a clear shadow of the head of the boom microphone cast on the white wooden railing at the top right of the screen. (00:06:25)

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. [Noticed also by Wes Craven on the DVD commentary track]. (00:22:25)

More quotes from Scream

Trivia: The murder of Principal Himbry was added after producer Bob Weinstein noticed there were about thirty pages in the script (which roughly translates to thirty minutes of screen time) in which nobody died. The scene also resolved the climax at Stu's party, as it gave all the guests a reason to leave.

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.
