Scream: 10 Parallels In The Franchise That Reddit Fans Noticed

Published

on

The Scream horror franchise often mentions other movies from the genre and discusses the rules of survival. But several of the films also feature callbacks to previous entries, and several fans have found that Scream (2022) in particular features quotes and scary scenes that remind audiences of the 1996 movie. Sometimes Sidney Prescott wears clothing that she did in an earlier film, and there are even two death scenes that are a lot like the opening of Scream 2.

Whether comparing the 2022 movie to the original, or noticing a few scenes in various movies that are similar, Reddit fans have noticed some fascinating parallels in the Scream franchise.

10 Amber Grabs Beer In Scream (2022) Like Tatum Does In Scream (1996)

One of the most unforgettable moments from the first Scream movie is when Tatum Riley heads into the basement to get some beer. Right away, audiences know that she could get killed since Randy Meeks said that characters should never say “I’ll be right back.” In Scream (2022), Amber Freeman does the same thing, which is a red herring since audiences now know that she is one of the Ghostface killers.

Redditor Lucifer_Crowe noted the parallel and said that it was  “savage of Amber to kill Dewey and then mimic his dead sister Tatum” by heading into the basement to get beer.

9 Gale And Dewey Wear Similar Outfits In Scream (1996) and Scream (2022)

Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley are two fan favorite Scream characters, and their love story has been moving to watch. It has also been tragic and upsetting, as fans learn that their marriage has fallen apart. Now they have no chance to salvage things after Dewey’s death.

Redditor DOOMGUY_GOKU noticed that the characters are wearing similar outfits in the first and fifth movies. The fan shared images of Gale in a red suit and Dewey in his police uniform and wrote, “Love this Parallel.”

8 Sidney And Sam Talk About How Life Isn’t A Film

It’s interesting how similar Sidney and Sam Carpenter seem to be as they are both strong and bold and not willing to go down without a really big fight.

Redditor Bcat591 noticed that in Scream 4, Ghostface kills Olivia Morris and Sidney tells Charlie Walker on the phone “This isn’t a f*cking movie” and Charlie says “It will be.” In Scream (2022), Sam says the same quote to Richie Kirsch, who also says that it will be a film. The fan wrote, “As soon as I heard that line in the theater, I knew that it had to be a callback to the one in 4.”

7 Sidney Falls Off Two Roofs

One Redditor noticed that in the first movie, Sidney falls of the roof of Stu’s home and runs off, but in Scream 4, Sidney falls off the roof of Kirby Reed’s home and goes back inside. The fan wrote, “It’s a great sign of how brave she’s become since Scream 1.”

It’s interesting to note how Sidney has always been a beloved, fearless character but she has shown audiences that she has changed and grown even more comfortable with herself over the franchise’s five films.

6 Sam And Sidney Are Both Strong Final Girls

Sidney is one of the best 2000s horror movie final girls and Sam carries on this trope in the new movie. They both approach the situation in the same way as they’re scared but feel capable of handling anything.

Redditor Hank_the_Beef noticed that in Scream 2, Sidney tells Dewey, ““Stop treating me like glass Dewey, I’m not gonna break.” The same thing happens in Scream (2022), Sam tells Richie, “You don’t have to check on me all the time I’m not breakable.” The fan wrote, “This is my favorite parallel in that it sets up Sam as the final girl.”

5 Wes And Judy’s Deaths Are Familiar

Watching Ghostface kill Judy Hicks outside her home and then come inside to murder her son Wes when he was expecting a nice, quiet evening at home with some take-out is really sad to think about. Fans love these characters and it’s so tragic to see them die.

Redditor AMoonMonkey realized that when Judy and Wes are murdered by Ghostface in Scream (2022), it “played out exactly like cotton and Christine’s death” in Scream 3. At the beginning of the third movie, Cotton Weary is murdered in his home and then Ghostface kills his girlfriend Christine Hamilton. Christine and Wes each take showers while home alone.

4 Jill And Richie Are Stabbed On The Arm

Sidney’s relative Jill Roberts is one of the best characters from only one Scream movie, and Redditor Complete-Flounder-92 pointed out an interesting parallel. In Scream 4, Jill gets stabbed on her arm, and in Scream (2022, this happens to Richie. The fan wrote that this was “when I had a feeling he was the killer.”

This was most likely a hint that Richie is one of the two Ghostfaces, and it works since when fans watch the entire franchise again, they can see this parallel.

3 Sidney Spins Around To See Ghostface

One Redditor noticed that when “Ghostface attacks Sidney” in the 1996 and 2022 films, there is a similar shot where Sidney spins around to see Ghostface standing there with a knife. When fans watch the video of each scene, it looks exactly alike.

This is a fun nod to the original movie and shows that no matter when Ghostface is trying to kill Sidney, and no matter which Ghostface it is, Sidney will always fight. It’s also a reminder that Sidney keeps finding herself reliving this scary situation.

2 Sidney Dresses The Same In Scream 2 And Scream (2022)

When fans watch Sidney’s Scream action scenes, she is always ready and willing to do what it takes to live, and fans can’t get enough of her tough personality.

Redditor jasonporter noticed that at the end of Scream 2 and Scream (2022), Sidney is wearing the same outift: a “black shirt and leather jacket.” This contributes to the overall feeling that Sidney is strong-willed.

1 Tara And Casey Both Hold Knives

The opening of Scream is iconic, with Ghostface phoning Casey Becker to chat about horror movies and killing her boyfriend Steve before ending her life. The opening of Scream (2022) sees Tara Carpenter in the same situation: getting a call from Ghostface while standing in her kitchen.

Redditor jasonporter noticed a parallel between both films and wrote, “Tara plays with the knife box in the same way Casey does.” Fans have noted that while Casey is killed, Tara gets away.
