Scream

Continuity mistake: After the sheriff is killed Sam and Dewey leave to go to the hospital and it's daylight. On their drive to the hospital it's dark out. Then when they take Dewey's body out of the hospital and Gayle shows up it's suddenly light again.

Suggested correction: You can see the sun setting at several cut sways during their drive, and Tara's room is getting naturally darker as the hospital scene plays out before Ghostface arrives. Then when the scene of Gale arriving in the morning takes place you can tell it's sunrise outside, meaning the events of the hospital took place overnight.

Continuity mistake: In the scene outside the hospital, when Gale and Sidney try to make the protagonist reconsider her plan to leave, Courteney Cox's hair changes position in front of either shoulder several times between shots.

Continuity mistake: The first time we see Sam, it's in a long shot as she is sitting outside the bowling alley in Modesto. Look at the shadows on the building, in particular the door Jack Quaid comes out of; they change between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Sam is assaulted at the hospital the first time, Ghostface misses Sam with his knife, which gets stuck on a poster on the board. By mistake, he 'stabbed' the third column of the text on the poster, but then the knife is stuck in the first column instead, then he pulls him out from the third column again, resulting in a hole in the second column.

Question: Why can Liv McKenzie not go to see Tara Carpenter, her co-worker/close friend after her near-murder attack? Her absence is done to draw suspicion on her, but as she is later revealed to not be the killer, the question is left unanswered in the film. (00:15:45)
