MPAA Rated R for strong horror violence and language

Sex & Nudity

  • A women is in the shower. We see her bare buttocks for an eighth of a second
  • Several instances of sexual innuendo, such as "Virgins always die first."
  • A few kisses.
  • A woman wearing a towel.
  • A woman wearing a slip.
  • Several women in cleavage and midriff-revealing tops.

Violence & Gore

  • More comedic and cheesier than the first 2 films, meaning the violence explained here is a lot less graphic than it may sound. Some of the stabbings are offscreen, unlike those in the first two films. As such, the death scenes are short and do not show any gory details. With that being said, there are violent images, such as shots of a bloodied dead corpse.
  • 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.
  • In the middle of the film while everyone is really freaked, one very rare scene occurs where the killer taunts people in & out of a house (power out). One character remains inside the house, receives a message, & lights a match to reads the message ("the killer will give mercy to whomever smells gas"), almost immediately the character screams for a couple seconds as he's engulfed in flame. Next shot, characters outside watch in horror as the house explodes.


  • About 20 F-words, a profane finger gesture, some anatomical references, lots of scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and some insults.
  • Not that bad.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

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

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Many intense and suspenseful scenes.
  • Many "jump" scenes.
  • Still violent, but Scream 3 is goofier than the first two movies.
