"A signature device of the series, started in Scream adn continued in Scream 2 and Scream 3, was to deliver the typical "rules" for the slasher subgenre fo horror movies, always recited by the movie-buff character Randy Meeks."
Rules of a horror mvoe (Scream)
1. "You can never have sex. "
2. "You can ver drink or do drugs. (The 'sin factor, an extension of number one.')"
3. "Never, ever, EVER, under any circurmstances sa "I will be right back",cause you won't back."
Randy also elaborates further during another scene, claiming that one should not assume the most likley person is always the killer and that "Everyone is a suspect."
In addition to the films rules, a similar set of "rules" were used for the film's trailer:
Don't anwer the phone
Don't open the door
Don't try to hide (on the video/DVD/Blurya edition, it's "Don't try to escap.")
But most all, don't scream.
just a bit of it.
