* RedStaplerEffect: The knife Ghostface uses is a Buck 120, which was discountinued four years poir the release of ''Scream''; fans wanting to get their own knife either searched for the rare knife, got replicas, or instead bought the Buck 120's younger brother, the Buck 119, which has a shorter blade and blood groove. As of recent, the Buck 120 has returned to the Buck catalog, renamed the "Buck 120 General".

*** Relatedly, the killers' MO is dependent on people being more likely to use landlines than cell phones, meaning if you answer your phone, the caller knows where you are.


** 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.

** 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 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLZE2r8IvoE 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.)

[[Series/CrossingJordan Woody]]! ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Croooowww!]]'' No, wait, not that last one.
** It is impossible to watch the scene in the first film where the principal chews out two troublemakers and not think "[[Series/HappyDays The Fonz]] has declared you '''uncool'''". And a greater shame there is not.
** [[Film/{{Grindhouse}} Cherry Darling]]/[[Series/{{Charmed}} Paige Matthews]] was killed by a garage door and [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Kronk]] is [[{{Superman}} Kitty Kowalski's]] bodyguard. Let's also not forget [[Series/GreysAnatomy McDreamy]] as a cop, [[ScoobyDoo Shaggy]] as [[spoiler: a killer]] and [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] as a sorority girl. [[{{Unfabulous}} Addie Singer]], [[Series/{{Heroes}} Claire]] [[Creator/HaydenPanettiere Bennett]], Series/VeronicaMars, [[Series/TrueBlood Sookie]] [[Creator/AnnaPaquin Stackhouse]], [[Series/{{PrettyLittleLiars}} Aria]], [[Series/{{Community}} Annie Edison]], [[Series/TheOC Seth Cohen]], [[Film/ScaryMovie Anthony]] [[TheDeparted Anderson]], [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 President Laura Roslin]], and [[Film/{{Grindhouse}} Dr. Dakota Block]] star in the fourth film.
** So [[Film/SawII Daniel Matthews]] re-located to Woodsboro.
** It isn't much of a stretch to imagine how [[spoiler: Literature/{{Nancy|Drew}} [[Creator/EmmaRoberts Drew]]]] could hatch a murder scheme, given that [[spoiler:she's solved several over the course of her career]]. But who ever imagined that [[spoiler:the kid from ''Film/{{Signs}}'']] would be the accomplice?
** [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1990 The voice of the first movie's Raphael]] was Kincaid's partner in ''Scream 3''. They even lampshade it with a pizza joke, with his character asking who ate all the pizza.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Ghostface is [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Mojo Jojo]] and [[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Abe Lincoln]].

** 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.
