* ''Trivia/{{Scream 3}}''
* ''Trivia/{{Scream 4}}''
* [[Trivia/ScreamTVSeries The TV series]]

!!Trivia for the franchise in general:

* AllStarCast: It certainly qualifies, particularly the sequels.
* DivorcedInstallment: Kevin Williamson wrote a script for ''Scream 3'' that was never used, focusing on a "fan club" for the Woodsboro killers and the ''Stab'' movies seeking to [[FifteenMinutesOfFame become famous]]. Years later, he dusted off his old idea, removed all references to ''Scream'', and [[ created]] the TV show ''Series/TheFollowing''.
* GenreKiller: An attempt at a deliberate example of this... which [[SpringtimeForHitler didn't really work out]].
* {{Irony}}: The prop for Ghostface's knife was based on the Buck 120 hunting knife, which was chosen because it had a massive eight-inch blade that looked scary on the screen. In real life, this knife was discontinued because the blade was so long that it made it difficult to [[GuttedLikeAFish gut animals]]... that is, the one thing that knife is most famous for in the movies.
* MutuallyFictional:
** In the first scene, the film ''Film/{{Halloween 1978}}'' is the subject of one of the questions Ghostface asks Casey. Later, ''Halloween'' is shown at a party, with Randy [[GenreSavvy loudly protesting at the mistakes Laurie Strode is making]]. Likewise, in the ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' sequel ''Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater'', a couple of characters are watching ''Scream 2'' in one scene.
** Also, in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'', the duo stumbles upon the the filming of a ''Scream'' movie. The first movie in the series had a poster for ''Film/{{Clerks}}'', a movie in [[Franchise/TheViewAskewniverse the same continuity]] as ''Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back''. Jay and Silent Bob themselves also show up in [[ a brief cameo]] in ''Scream 3'', where they mistake Gale for Connie Chung and try hitting on her, receiving [[FlippingTheBird a middle finger]] in response. (That said, it's not explicitly stated to be a ''Scream'' film; some fans believe it could have been a ''[[ShowWithinAShow Stab]]'' sequel.)
* TropeNamer: For GuttedLikeAFish.
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece:
** In the first film, Billy has a cell phone, which casts suspicion on him as being the Ghostface killer in the first act of the movie. Nowadays, [[TechnologyMarchesOn it would be more suspicious]] if he ''didn't'' have a cell phone.
** Likewise, a pivotal scene in the first film takes place in a video rental store. 'Nuff said.
** The image of horror films that the ''Scream'' series runs on is the slashers of TheEighties. While these movies were seen as dated and trite even in 1996 (the whole reason ''Scream'' was making fun of them), they were still reasonably modern at the time, the sort of films that teenagers watched at parties. With the rise of TorturePorn, FoundFootageFilms, and supernatural horror in the '00s and '10s, slashers are nowadays seen as retro, which ''Scream 4'' had to address when it came out in 2011.
