Continuity mistake: When Sidney leaves her dorm room to head for the shower and Hallie follows, you can see the open wardrobe by the dorm door, and there is a jumper visible hanging from the wardrobe door. But when they walk back into the room to look at the news on TV, the jumper has moved and now there is a bag visible in front of it as well. (00:13:05 - 00:13:50)

Continuity mistake: When Sidney is leaving with the 2 agents, right before she kisses Derek, she has a zit on her chin. When they stop at the red light, after the accident, it has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Dewey is trying to get Gail's attention on the glass, his hand changes from being open palmed to a fist, between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Sidney and Dewey are talking under the gazebo, before Dewey walks off, Sidney is leaning against one of the support beams of the gazebo. In the next shot she is standing at the centre of the staircase, away from the beam. (00:23:00)

Continuity mistake: When the girl - during the Stab film - touches her boyfriend's jacket and gets blood on her hands - in the second clip there is much more blood on her hands than in the first clip.

Continuity mistake: When Dewey is being stabbed in front of Gale in the soundproof room, there is already blood on his his shirt. But you have to look very closely.

Continuity mistake: In her room at the start, Sid's hair is a little bit over her eye. She talks to her roomate and walks out of the room. The next shot her hair is perfectly behind her ear, but she didn't have time to put it back. (00:13:05)

Continuity mistake: In the make-out scene with Gale and Dewey, Gale's lipstick is smeared on her face, but there's none on Dewey's face.

Continuity mistake: When Derek dies after being shot, tied up on the stage prop, his head slumps down with it looking down to his right towards Sid with his forehead tilted to the left. When it cuts to another angle at a close up of Sid, suddenly his head is tilted the other direction.

Continuity mistake: Cici throws a plant at Ghostface as she's running away from him, but it barely slows him down. They round a corner around the banister and he is chasing her right behind her, only about 2 or 3 feet behind her at most. But then it cuts to another shot and suddenly she's down a hallway and instantly put a lot of distance between herself and Ghostface before he's even entering the hall.

Audio problem: When Dewey is being stabbed up against the soundproof glass, you see a shot of Gale shouting "No." You can see a reflection of the killer in the glass standing motionless, but you can hear Dewey being stabbed. (01:18:45)

Mickey: Oh come on Randy, with all due respect, the killer obvious patterned himself after two serial killers who were immortalized on film.
Guy 2: Thank you!
Film Teacher: So, you're saying that someone is trying to make a real life sequel?
Randy: Stab 2? Why would anyone want to do that? Sequels suck!

Trivia: In Scream someone asks Sidney who would play her if they made a movie about her. She said "With my luck, probably Tori Spelling." Tori Spelling did play Sidney in Stab.

More trivia for Scream 2

Question: In the movie "Stab" it shows what is supposed to be reenacting Drew Barrymore's death and looks as if it is just like the one in the first film. But how could it be almost perfect if no one was there to see it?


Chosen answer: In real life, they'd have known there was a phone call involved. They would have known her boyfriend was killed. They could have easily pieced together that the killers played a cat and mouse game with the Drew Barrymore character. But that doesn't account for all the details. Anything else would be speculation. My speculation: Maybe Billy Loomis kept a diary.
