Scream 2

Visible crew/equipment: If you look really close in the background as the killer throws Cici off the balcony, you can see someone sitting in a tree, wearing black, with a camera.


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.

Continuity mistake: Hallie takes the remote control off the top of the TV to turn it on. But later when they return in front of the TV to watch the news report, the remote is back on the top of the set. Also, the position of the video console which is also on top of the TV has changed, the position of the clothing on the chair next to the television has repositioned and lastly, the items on the window sill behind the TV set have completely changed.

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.

Trivia: If you watch right at the start you will see Sidney watching the TV in her dorm room when Cotton is talking on a show. Look at the interviewer he is talking to - it's the writer of Scream and Scream 2 Kevin Williamson.

New this month Trivia: Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez did the production a favor and directed the film-within-a-film "Stab" that we see portions of. When the movie is shown again in "Scream 4", they added in a title card that says "A Robert Rodriguez" film as a nod to him for filming the scenes.

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!

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: 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: 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?

Jon Sandys

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.
