The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


Several instances of sexual innuendo (including references to rape.)

A few kisses.

We see a nude woman's blurry shape through a shower door (we see her bare back and briefly see her upper buttocks.)

A woman wearing a towel.

A woman wearing a slip.

Several women in cleavage and midriff-revealing tops.

Violence & Gore


Many people are stabbed and sliced; sometimes we hear squishy or slashing noises, sometimes we see the knife sticking out of the body and most of the time we see blood on the victim's clothing or body. It should be noted that this is the least violent film in the Scream series, much less of the actual violence is onscreen.

During struggles people are hit with various objects (lamps, chair, shelves, ect.). They are also punched, kicked, and thrown around. This often results in blood, and it is intense.

A few shootings also take place (Once in the head). These are bloody.

A person dies from a fall. The body (with a pool of blood) is seen.



About 30 F-words, a profane finger gesture, some anatomical references, lots of scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and some insults.


Several characters drink alcoholic beverages and/or smoke cigarettes in various scenes throughout the film.


Many intense and suspenseful scenes.

Many "jump" scenes.

Still very violent, but Scream 3 is goofier than the first two movies, and can be viewed by slightly younger audience.

Total Content Advisory: 29/50- Violent, but slightly less serious than Scream 1 and 2. 13+
