[[redirect:Franchise/{{Scream}}]]''Scream 3'' (2000) is the third film in the ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' franchise.

After being targeted by Ghostface twice, Sidney has gone into complete isolation. The ''Stab'' film series is gearing up to film its final chapter in a trilogy, until another Ghostface surfaces who proceeds to kill off the cast. Gail Weathers investigates, discovering that the events are somehow linked to Sidney's late mother Maureen Prescott. Sidney returns to confront Ghostface and face her past.

----
!!This film provides examples of:

* ArcWelding: The killer, [[spoiler: Roman]], reveals that [[spoiler: he]] was the one who originally convinced [[spoiler: Billy and Stu]] to start killing, making [[spoiler: him]] directly responsible for the events of the first movie and indirectly responsible for the second.
* AwardBaitSong: Does [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGDHZn5zbGA Is This the End]] by Creed count?
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Roman was the one that convinced Billy and Stu to become killers in the first film, and was indirectly responsible for Mrs. Loomis wanting to avenge Billy's death, plus Mickey, Jill ''and'' Charles fame-seeking motivation for being the next Ghostfaces. Furthermore, Roman was the lone Ghostface killer in the third film, so one could arguably consider him as the Biggest Bad for the series, at least for the original trilogy. ]]
* TheBladeAlwaysLandsPointyEndIn: Subverted when [[spoiler:Ghostface throws his knife at Dewey, and it hits him on the handle side. It still hurts enough for him to fall down the stairs.]]
* {{Cameo}}:
** [[ViewAskewniverse Jay and Silent Bob]] appear on the movie set of ''Stab 3''. In their own films, they interrupt the filming of a fictional ''Scream'' sequel.
** Creator/RogerCorman also has a cameo as a studio executive.
** In-universe, Cotton Weary shoots a cameo for ''Stab 3'' AsHimself.
** Creator/HeatherMatarazzo appears as Randy's sister.
** Carrie Fisher appears ... as a woman who is always mistaken for Carrie Fisher, and is very annoyed by it. She also accuses Carrie Fisher of [[CastingCouch sleeping with George Lucas]] to get the role.
* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Handgun:]] This little dialogue says it all.
--> '''Kincaid:''' (hands Dewey his pistol) Take this GET THE SON OF A BITCH!! [[spoiler: he does get him.]]
* DawsonCasting: Happens in-universe. Sarah is 35 years old, but her character in ''Stab 3'', [[RedShirt Candy]], is only 21.
* DeathBySex:
** Lampshaded by Randy, who taped a video [[spoiler:prior to his death [[CrazyPrepared just in case]], and blames what became his eventual death in the last film on the fact that he had sex with a girl in the video store.]]
** One of the most {{egregious}} instances ever: [[spoiler:Angelina]] gets killed literally ''seconds'' after [[spoiler:revealing that she [[CastingCouch slept with the producer]] to get the role]]. ''Damn'', do the rules strike fast! Doubles as a DeathByIrony, since [[spoiler:Angelina played FinalGirl Sidney in ''Stab 3'', and yet she herself failed to follow the rules that Final Girls are to obey]] (but then again, so did Sidney herself in the first film).
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Cotton.
* DumbBlonde: Sarah, who mistakenly believes that ''Film/{{Psycho}}'''s famous shower scene was in ''Film/{{Vertigo}}'' instead.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Subverted (possibly even inverted). [[spoiler:Roman's]] motivation for killing everyone was because his mother disowned him and ran off to start a new family.
* FryingPanOfDoom
* HorribleHollywood
* HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday: It's Roman's birthday.
* TheIngenue: Angelina. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope It's all just an act, though.]] Underneath this persona, she's actually [[NiceCharacterMeanActor a foul-tempered bitch]] who [[CastingCouch slept with the producer]] to get the role of Sidney in ''Stab 3''.]]
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Liev Schreiber (as Cotton Weary) has a cameo at the beginning. He is talking on the phone with his agent, complaining that the only gig he could get is a cameo at the beginning of ''Stab 3''.
** Also, the ''Stab 3'' cast can't predict their characters' fate: the script is being kept under wraps to avoid it being leaked on the Internet. This happened during the production of ''Scream 2'', and ''may'' have lead Craven & co. to change that movie's outcome: [[spoiler: in a leaked version, Derek and Hallie were the killers.]]
* LighterAndSofter: De-emphasized explicit violence in favor of humor, due to being made post-Columbine.
* MadeOfIron: Randy's "trilogy rules" state that, at the ends of trilogies, the killers become supernaturally strong and tough, and can only be killed through [[OffWithHisHead decapitation]], [[HumanPopsicle cryogenic freezing]] or other extreme means. As it turns out, he's partly right. The killer is able to survive multiple gun shots, [[spoiler: because he's wearing a bullet-proof vest]].
* MurderSimulators: One of the producers of ''Stab 3'' notes how violence in cinema has become a touchy subject recently; the unstated-yet-obvious cause of this is the fact that, a year before, the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} massacre took place. They also speculate that Cotton's murder may have been by a deranged fan.
-->'''Milton:''' Detectives, there's no reason to presume that Cotton's death had anything to do with this movie, is there?
-->'''Kincaid's Partner:''' He was making a movie called ''Stab''. [[DeadpanSnarker He was stabbed.]]
* NeedleInAStackOfNeedles: The killer conceals their location by hiding in a rack of Ghostface costumes.
* NotAfraidOfYouAnymore: In the beginning, Sidney is revealed to be living as a recluse, convinced it is the only way to stay safe from psychotic killers from coming after her, and killing those around her. She lives in the middle of nowhere, locks and sets an alarm on her gate before locking and setting the alarm for her house. In the end, [[spoiler: she leaves her gate open behind her, and doesn't set the alarm for her house. When the wind blows the door open, she looks at it and walks away.]]
* TheOtherDarrin: In-universe, ''Stab 3'' sees the replacement of Tori Spelling as Sidney with Angelina Tyler.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Detective Kincaid]] is implied a number of times to be the killer, in fact, his innocence leads to a PlotHole[=/=]WhatHappenedToTheMouse incident. It was never explained how the real killer got Sidney's phone number, and [[spoiler:Kincaid]] used Dewey's phone just before the scene in which Sidney gets the phone call from the killer. And it doesn't explain why he had all those newspaper clippings on Sidney in his desk, but the ending shows him now all chummy with the main three.
* SecretKeeper: Sidney is living as a recluse, convinced it's the only way to stay safe. The only people who know where she is are her father and Dewey.
* ShutUpHannibal: The killer [[spoiler: Roman explains that he is Sidney's half-brother]], and fires off a bunch of reasons as to why he committed the murders. Sidney then cuts him off, saying she's tired of all the bullshit that the killers she has encountered have told her, and says that all of the reasons she has heard are just pathetic excuses that the killers use to hide the fact that they kill people [[ForTheEvulz simply because they enjoy doing it]]. This leads to a rather large {{Villainous Breakdown}}.
* StageNames: It's revealed that Sidney's mother Maureen was a failed actress who went by Rina Reynolds. In the same scene, it's also revealed that Jennifer's real name is Judy Jurgenstern.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: [[spoiler:Cotton.]]
* TemptingFate:
-->'''Sarah:''' Guys, we are not in any danger.
-->'''Tyson:''' "We are not in any danger," says Candy, page 15.
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Played with. Disguised as [[spoiler:Dewey]], the killer has a phone conversation with [[spoiler:Jennifer Jolie's bodyguard]] while [[spoiler:he's looking through Dewey's trailer]]. When he insults "[[spoiler:Dewey]]" over the phone, the killer responds with "That makes me... angry!" (with a definitive emphasis of rage on that last word), while bursting in and stabbing [[spoiler:him]] in the back.
* ThemeNaming: A number of characters ({{Creator/Angelina|Jolie}} [[Creator/LivTyler Tyler]], Creator/{{Jennifer|Aniston}} [[Creator/AngelinaJolie Jolie]], {{Tom|Cruise}} [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddy_Prinze_Jr Prinze]]) are named after real-life actors. Fitting, since the characters are actors themselves, and in Jennifer's case it's actually a {{stage name|s}}.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: When Dewey catches the the killer by surprise, he retaliates by throwing his knife at Dewey...[[spoiler: though it's hilariously averted as the handle side hits him square in the forehead.]]
* TonightSomeoneDies: Randy mentions that the rules of the trilogy mean that someone big is going to die before it's over. [[spoiler:He's wrong though, Sidney, Gale, and Dewey all live.]]
* VideoWill: [[spoiler:Randy's tape]], also counts as TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat (somehow).
* WhamLine: From Ghostface, while unleashing its MotiveRant in ''Scream 3''
-->'''Ghostface/[[spoiler:Roman]]''': I searched for my mother, an actress named Rina Reynolds... searched for her my whole life. I finally tracked her down, knocked on her door, thinking she would welcome me with open arms... but she had a new life, a new name: [[spoiler:Maureen Prescott! You were the only child she claimed. Sid, she shut me out in the cold forever! Her own son. (takes off the mask, revealing who they are) Roman Bridger, director... (uses the voice changer) and brother.]]
* WildMassGuessing: The cast of ''Stab 3'', since they don't have the full scripts for the movie (to keep the ending from being leaked), indulges in this while on-set. Angelina (the actress who plays Movie!Sidney) speculates that her character might even be the killer this time.
