Scream 3

Continuity mistake: The first time Gale goes to Jennifer's house, if you look when Dewy gets out of his car the window is down. Look quickly to see when Dewy closes the door the window is up. (00:30:40)

Suggested correction: I really can't see it. He gets out of the car and closes the (car) door in the same shot so it's not that. He gets out of the car (the window is indeed down) and then goes to the front door, but he does not close that door, and from there you can't see the driver side window anyway. Am I missing something?

Continuity mistake: When the bodyguard finds Gale eavesdropping on Dewey and Jennifer, they soon confront each other and Tom is sitting in a chair with his left hand on the arm rest. In the next shot Tom is smoking a half finished cigarette with his left hand, but he had no time to change the hand with the cigarette in it between shots. (00:40:00)

Suggested correction: He's sitting in a chair with his left hand on the arm rest, but in that hand you can see he is holding the cigarette already. The continuity is correct.

Continuity mistake: The knife that was thrown at Dewey left the killers hand with blood all over the blade, but was perfectly clean when the butt of it hit his head to knock him out at the top of the stairs. (01:26:55)

Suggested correction: Watch in slo-motion the sequence when he gets hit and you'll see the blade is bloody even during that. He then pulls out of his sleeve (literally!) a clean knife, but it's not supposed to be the original one, since he never retrieved it.

Sammo is 100% correct. It goes by quick, but there's definitely a bit of blood on the knife still. If you look up "Scream 3 - Headshot Knife Throw" on YouTube, you can actually see the blood on the knife even at normal speed.

Suggested correction: To be fair, "completely" is a bit of an overstatement. Her hair is dry, she has makeup, she's not quite convincing and other entries remark that. Her upper body is wet, though.

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. (01:05:25)

Suggested correction: Sorry but no; she runs by -some - plants, and in the next take she is right next -other - plants, which she throws at the killer, who is just passing by the -first - plants. You can see both plants at the same time on screen if you are watching a version in the proper format.

Other mistake: When Sidney is on the set with her mother's covered body, it rises up and reaches for her, speaking in her mom's voice. Sidney calls out for Dewey before climbing out of the window. However, when she's grabbed, she yells out her own name: Sidney.

Suggested correction: No, listen to the voice; it's Fake Ghost Mom that yells "Sidney" as part of her Scooby spooky act; Neve Campbell just cries out "No."

Revealing mistake: When the house blows up and Dewey, Gale and Jennifer jump off the balcony, we find that Gale is near the car, the killer jumps up behind her. Dewy takes a shot at him with a gun and it is obvious that the killer awkwardly slams himself against the car window, rather than being caused by the impact of the bullet.

Suggested correction: Actually he would have to fake it because it is obvious, and later found out that he has a bulletproof vest on. if he wouldn't have faked it, everybody would've known that he had one on.

He faked really badly that being shot sent him smashing against a car, to avoid being suspected of wearing a bulletproof vest? How does that work? Dewey in the dialogue thinks he didn't even hit him.

Sammo Premium member

Yeah, I'm with Sammo here. I don't really get the logic of the correction. I think it is just really awkward blocking/choreography/camera placement, and I do think the original mistake probably stands as-is.

Continuity mistake: When Sidney is first going into the house for the end of the movie it is clear that she is not wearing the vest underneath her clothes and as she is walking around or when she is rolling on the ground fighting with her half brother you see her bellybutton but then she has the vest on and it goes over the belly button

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.
