This installment of the tongue-in-cheek (but still scary) horror trilogy finds Sidney Prescott again battling a crazed killer -- only this time it's on the set of Stab, a movie-within-a-movie based on the original Woodsboro murders.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while there's less extreme bloodshed here than in the other Scream features, stabbings and throat-slittings are still abundant, matched with (sometimes exceeded by) the swearing. The movie industry is described as an environment where vapid starlets boost their careers by having sex with influential men. There are ghoulish and defamatory references to the imperiled heroine's late mother throughout, and toward the end the idea of parental rejection comes to the fore as a motive for mass-murder.
- Sexual Content
- Characters talk frequently about sex, almost always in the context of using it to get ahead in show business. Heroine Sidney's own late mother is described repeatedly as this sort of specimen. A movie executive's bedroom has one-way mirrors, presumably for kinky voyeurism.
- Vicious stabbings, close-range shootings, and hand-to-hand punching and strangling.
- Profanity here is more graphic than the gore.
- Social Behavior
- No one behaves very admirably.
