Scream 2

Question: At one point in the film, Gale and Dewey make the observation that the killer is killing people in a duplication of Woodsboro, going so far as to choose victims with the same names. What happened to that plot point? It certainly doesn't explain the order or the selection of the rest of the victims in the movie. Yes, Randy's murder by Mrs. Loomis and its motive was obvious, but what about the others? Were the first 3 murders set up in a tantalizing pattern in order to lure in Gale, Dewey, and Co.? How did Mickey know they'd catch on to that pattern anyways? Why would he abandon it? Mickey's motive was more theatrical than personal, so one would think he'd stick to patterns, details, and general copycatting.

Chosen answer: In the scene before Randy's death, Randy and the gang discussed how the copycat theory didn't explain why the killer attacked Sidney in the fraternity house, as Sidney was not killed in the original murder spree. This may be why the copycat plot point was dropped since the characters believed it led nowhere. Randy's murder by Mrs. Loomis also screwed up the kill order from the original movie, which may have caused Mickey to abandon the copycat plan. Randy's death further convinced Gale and Dewey that the killer wasn't just attempting to duplicate the Woodsboro murders. Regardless of who the first three victims were, the murders would have attracted the attention of the Woodsboro survivors anyways. Mrs. Loomis was the mastermind of the two killers, so it did not seem likely that Mickey knew that the Woodsboro survivors would have caught on to the pattern of the first three murders.

Question: What was Mickey's motive for being one of the killers?

Chosen answer: Mickey's reply when Syd asks, that he's "always been a follower," indicates he's probably just psychotic, looking for any excuse to kill.

Answer: He hadn't no motive. Remember? It was the millennium. Motives are incidental. That and he was out of his mind. And he wanted to blame the movies.

Question: There's a trivia entry already listed about where to find Matthew Lillard making a cameo, but I've heard that Rose McGowan (Tatum from Scream) is in the background in the opening sequence somewhere. Can anyone tell me exactly where?

Chosen answer: Rose is the girl in a deep-green shirt with blonde hair. She looks slightly shocked. You see her near the left center of the audience scene, right after the 2nd shot of Jada climbing/crawling onto the stage.

Answer: Although that audience member does bear a vague resemblance to Rose McGowan, wouldn't she have had her blonde hair dyed back to her natural brunette look? Just my opinion. I wanted to share with y'all.

Question: When Gail and Dewy are trying to find the killer, Dewy says "white male, 3'0 clock" and Gale says "your clock or my clock?", what are they talking about?

Chosen answer: It's a way of indicating direction. If you consider yourself to be standing in the centre of a clock face, with 12 o'clock directly in front of you, then the different times indicate different directions, so when Dewey says that the man he's spotted is at 3 o'clock, he's referring to somebody standing directly to his right. Gale asks him to clarify whether he means his 3 o'clock or her 3 o'clock because they're not facing in the same direction, and thus their 3 o'clocks are not the same.

Question: What did Mrs.Loomis mean when she said she had a make over? Did she mean plastic surgery?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Yes, she had plastic surgery to disguise herself so she could get close to Sidney.

Answer: Sidney did eventually recognise Mrs Loomis. So it's also likely that she changed her hair. Style and or colour. She also could have put on weight or lost it accordingly. Plastic surgery is expensive so it's possible that she could not afford it. That being typed, a nose job is not entirely out of the question. Or any number of facial adjustments.

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.

Question: Where is the David Schwimmer reference in this movie? I know that there is a Jennifer Aniston reference, but I heard that there was one about David Schwimmer.

Chosen answer: It's when Dewey and Randy are talking about the movie Stab. Randy says to him "At least you get played by David Schwimmer, I get the guy who rode the stage coach through one episode of Dr Quinn".

Migster

Question: During the film class scene, Mickey states that Stu Macher & Billy Loomis patterned themselves "after two serial killers who have been immortalized on film." Who are these serial killers?

Chosen answer: You're mistaken. Mickey was stating that the person or persons who killed Omar Epps and Jada Pinkett were patterning themselves after Stu and Billy.
