* TrueCompanions: Sidney, Gale, Dewey and Randy. Sidney and Gale are a particularly good example in that despite their long history together they never really become ''friends'' -- but have saved each other's lives numerous times and know they can count on each other.

* DiabolusExNihilo: The motivation of [[spoiler:Jill Roberts]] has nothing to do with Maureen or avenging previous killers, which was all dealt with in the trilogy.

* PolishTheTurd: Parodied in the cast/crew section on the film's website, where all of the actors' bios are heavily glowing, praising their careers. When you read the one for David Arquette, however, you realize that the whole thing's a joke.
-->David Arquette is an actor, writer, director and producer whose unique sensibility makes him one of the most versatile talents working in the entertainment industry today, able to segue from comedy to drama with extraordinary ease. This makes David Arquette extremely uncomfortable, because of the fact that he is writing this bio himself and it seems arrogant to boast about his incredible talents in such a way while also [[ThirdPersonPerson referring to himself in the third person]].

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Ghostface's knives have always parted flesh easily, but this film gets an exceptional example when [[spoiler: a police officer is stabbed through the forehead nearly up to the hilt in a 'hard poke' stabbing motion[[note]]As compared to a 'grip the blade and thrust down' stabbing motion, which delivers a lot more force and is Ghostface's stabbing move de jour.[[/note]]. Keep in mind, with some lucky angles the human skull can deflect BULLETS.]]

* NearVillainVictory: [[spoiler: Jill]] nearly gets away with her plan, except a) Sidney survives her attack and b) she mentions how [[spoiler:she and Gale have matching wounds, despite the fact that [[INeverSaidItWasPoison she should have no way of knowing that]]. In a way, she ''still wins''...even though she dies, she achieves the fame she always wanted. The final shot in the movie is her corpse, with the faint sign of a smile on her lips as the news reporters describe her in glowing terms.

* WrongGenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Jill]] gets hit with a minor case of this. She believes the Stabathon was the fake-out ending, making the assault on the house the "real" ending. However, the Stabathon was such an obvious attempt to force a fake-out that it narratively only served as the halfway point of the movie. This means that [[spoiler: Jill]] effectively went into the movie's second act, thinking it was the third.

* DeadStarWalking: In-universe examples (maybe). The FilmWithinAFilm ''Stab 6'' has Lucy Hale from ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' getting offed. It's then followed by ''Stab 7'' showing Anna Paquin from ''Series/TrueBlood'' suffering the same fate. And then in the 'real' scene, the first victim is played by Aimee Teagarden, recognisable from ''Series/FridayNightLights''.

** If Kirby actually died, it's a weird inversion - she died for ''not having'' sex (with [[spoiler:the eventual murderer]] of all people, as a MomentKiller ruined their advances on each other).

* DownerEnding: Yes, in the end, [[spoiler:Jill and Charlie's]] plans are foiled. However, all the new characters, save for [[spoiler: Judy (and maybe Kirby)]], are dead. [[spoiler: Sidney, Dewey, and Gale]] come out injured and broken. The media are convinced that [[spoiler: Jill]] is a hero, and one wonders how [[spoiler: Sidney]] is going to take having to tell the world that her own family member was playing them all like fiddles, and was committing the murders herself...assuming she even can tell the world.

to:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The ending has [[spoiler:Jill, the new version of Sidney in this copycat of the first film's murders (i.e. a remake of ''Scream''), trying to kill and replace Sidney and claim her fame for herself]]. In other words, it's the remake literally defiling the original film and [[AdaptationDisplacement displacing it]] in the public eye. And Sidney is not happy.
