Remember in Scream, when Drew Barrymore is certain that Jason is the slayer in the original Friday the 13th? She ends up as one of Ghostface's victims because she's confusing the rest of the Friday the 13th sequels with the original, in which Jason's mom is the guilty party. That kind of thing happens all the time with horror movies. The major franchises routinely have multiple sequels, and the originals are constantly referenced in TV shows and other films, so it feels like we've seen them even if we haven't.
Back to Scream. It's entirely possible you haven't seen the original, but you may still intrinsically know the scene in question simply because it's been parodied so often in pop culture. If you're not a major horror-head, there are probably a lot of horror movies you haven't seen - which is fine. It just means you get to experience some of these groundbreaking films for the first time.
