Scream 3

Corrected entry: In the bathroom scene with Sidney, if they were so worried about her safety they should have sent bodyguards in with her.

Correction: Character decision, not a movie mistake. They should, but they didn't.


Corrected entry: When Gale and Dewey are pulling books off the shelf a book falls right in Gale's face. You can see the very surprised look on her face - it wasn't meant to happen.

Correction: Even if it was not meant to happen according to the script, it is a natural occurence that would give most people a surprise. Nothing wrong with that happening in a movie.


Corrected entry: When Roman is exploring the house with Parker Posey right before they leave, he tells Dewey and Gale "I'll be right back," breaking a rule that Randy mentioned in the first movie. Notice the nervous look on their faces.

Correction: The horror movie expert says that all the rules don't apply anymore in a trilogy, which this is, so Roman can't break any rules since they no longer apply.

Corrected entry: Why is the killer so surprised when Syd reveals she was wearing a bullet-proof vest when he'd been wearing one also?

Correction: He's suprised at this because he wasn't expecting her to have thought of wearing one.

Corrected entry: When Jennifer gets killed, it looks like as Roman stabs her, the two kinda press against the glass covering the closet. As Dewey shoots the glass, Jennifer falls through the glass, yet the killer is nowhere to be seen. It looks like to the right, there is a wall there, preventing him from running in that direction, yet if he ran the other way, he would have ran right in full view of Dewey and Gale. Instead, he's just magically disappeared.

Correction: You hear many times that Miltons House (the one that there staying) has many secret passages. And seeing as Roman being the killer and all seemed to knew alot of them (after being able to trap Sid in the movie room and found Jennifer in the stairway Its quite possible that the wall was another secret passage to somewhere else.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the cast are hanging out in Jennifer's house with Gale and Dewey, the door opens by itself and Dewey points his gun out the door. When he calls out the names of the actors, watch the wall behind him and Gale, you can see a shadow of a cast/crew member on the wall.

Correction: Who says that's not the killer, sneaking around the house?

Correction: Given the direction of the light, the movement and the timing, it's pretty safe to say it's Jennifer's shadow.

Corrected entry: The "Movie Gale" learns that she gets killed next, based on the idea that the killer is going in the order of how they get killed in the script. That means that Gale Weathers dies in Stab 3. But when the "Movie Gale" gets killed behind the 2-way mirrors, you can hear her say that she is the killer in Stab 3.

Correction: Gale lies and says she is the killer in "Stab 3" so she won't actually be killed.

Corrected entry: I think a few of the characters seem to have forgotten the 2nd victim in the opening scene. References are made to "Two dead people" when there were three and "three and a bodyguard" when there were five dead at that point.

Correction: He didn't say three dead people and a body guard. He said three dead celebrities and a body guard.

However you phrase it, it still is 4 victims total, and there are 5 at that point, and earlier as it is correctly said in the entry, they say "You're scaring me. Two people are dead." when three in fact are dead. They just forgot completely that the first case was a double homicide.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film (after we've established that the killer is wearing a bullet-proof vest) why does Sidney bother to stab him in the chest? It's not as though she's forgotten because she then tells Dewey to shoot him in the head! (01:45:24)

Correction: When a bullet is shot into a bullet-proof vest, it melts the compact plastic inside. However, if a very sharp object was plunged into a bullet-proof vest, it would go through, because it lacked the heat to melt the plastic. There's a distinction between bullet-proof and stab-proof jackets.

Corrected entry: When Dewey is shooting at the one-way mirror he fires seven shots form a revolver (they only hold six) then he fires again without reloading and is surprised to find it empty.

Correction: Some revolvers do hold 7 shots:

But not the Colt Python he uses in the scene (you can check the Internet Movie Firearms Database).

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

Trivia: Like the other Scream films, in this movie there's a small part for the man himself, Wes Craven. He's the guy with the video camera walking by Jay and Silent Bob. He even takes a good look at the camera. (00:18:30)


More trivia for Scream 3

Question: Was Roman just playing dead in the coffin or was it a dummy? Hard to believe that he could be pretending because Gale checks his pulse.

Answer: No it was Roman. There is a technique you can do where if you apply pressure on the correct artery you can stop the pulse. EXTREMELY dangerous though.
