Continuity mistake: Gale and the killer go flying through the basement door, you see the door opens out, but when they crash through it, it opens in. Its not a two way swinging door, because you see the hinge at the top of the door to open it out, not in.

Continuity mistake: At the part where Sidney is on the set of her house and the killer is chasing her up the stairs, she runs right by the plants, but in the next take she is right next to the plants just about to throw one.

Continuity mistake: Before Sidney pulls the killer out of the door on the house set, we see the bedside table is lengthwise against the wall. As the killer falls towards the bed it's turns 90 degrees, so the bed is a bit closer to the door.

Continuity mistake: Roman's sideburns change lengths towards the end of the movie.


Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Sidney is lying on the floor, Roman is pointing the gun to her head about to kill her. The gun is clearly pointing to her head/neck area when he shoots, but Sidney still lives and shows him she was wearing the vest. The vest protects her chest and Roman shot her in the head.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dewey and Gale are having lunch, Dewey asks her "Why would the police come to you?" In the background, a waitress in white walks by. Then they switch to Gale and the waitress has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Sidney is fighting the killer, when ever a big stunt comes up, the killer's hair gets lighter.

More trivia for Scream 3

Question: Is Detective Kincaid the second killer? Two pieces of evidence spring to mind that he could be. One, he borrows Dewey's phone and soon afterwards Sydney is rung up by the killer and two, Roman Bridger has a bulletproof vest.

Answer: Those are misdirects/red-herrings to make you suspect Kincaid. Not actual pieces of evidence. But Roman is confirmed to be the only killer in the film. Originally, there was going to be a second killer (as there is in the three other films), but the idea was dropped during production to change-up the formula slightly and keep audiences guessing.

So how could Roman call her in that moment?

Answer: No, remember, the detective says something along the lines of "In the third movie, all bets are off." Meaning that you can't expect the same formula (ie two killers) as the first two movies.
