Scream (1996) facts:
1. The scene where Billy and Sidney meet in the school after he is released from jail, Neve Campbell had an emergency and had to leave the set early--Skeet was left doing his side of the camera shots talking to the first assistant standing in Neve's place (off camera of course), Wes Craven stood there for a while, finally there was a microphone with an "X" for Neve's eyeline placed there for Skeet to talk to.
2. The cheerleader in the bathroom who insults Sidney behind her back was Leonora Scelfo who was at the time of that scene the real life girlfriend of Skeet Ulrich.
3. Scream Was originally rated NC - 17. Among the scenes cut back to achieve an R rating were; -Steve's guts hanging there, instead of actually seeing them fall out and slide over his lap. - When Casey's gutted body is hanging from the tree and the camera pans toward it, the shot was sped up by 50 percent, because in realtime you can too clearly see what was done to her. To speed it up, every second frame was removed.
-When Tatum's head is crushed in the garage door, a few frames were cut out, after the impact.
-After Kenny's throat is slit, there is a few seconds of footage where he bleeds profusely from his neck wound and looks up into the eyes of the killer.
-Three of the stabbings between Billy and Stu are only heard, not seen, except in the directors cut.
-After Stu has been stabbed by Billy a few times, his arm is dripping blood on the floor beside Neil Prescott. You can hear the sound effect in the theatrical version.
