Drinking and drug use: 5/10- Drunk characters and beer is consumed by teens. Frightining scenes: 10/10- Complete terror.

perfect for kids over 11, it is a classic horror flick, so be careful.

I am eleven and it was an amazing movie. this stupid website brainwashes parents. It had one mild sex scene, it was very violent, and very little language.

A few scares, especially the first scene, but overall a waste of time. I didn't connect with any of the characters, and didn't feel sorry for them as they got killed off. There are better slasher movies out there- like Psycho and Halloween.

Tongue in cheek horror flick knows what it is

After seeing "Scary Movie," (all four of them, I know, but it's a guilty pleasure) you can't help but realize that a little magic has been gone from "Scream" because the first movie mocked it so much. But it doesn't undermine it. The opening sequence with Drew Barrymore is still fantastic...just don't let her prominent appearance on the poster fool you! The movie makes tons of self-referential jokes, with stabs at Wes Craven's own franchises, Halloween and the Friday the 13th never ending franchise (it hasn't been around for a few years but it will). While it can't help but be a little dated because of the fashion, the music still holds up and the fact that horror movies usually do abide by these generic formulas STILL means that "Scream" will always have a timeless feel to it.

not that bad

To tell you the the truth, this movie should have been rated pg-13. iI's really not that bad. So I'd say that if your kids are at least 12 and they want to watch this movie, it's fine to let them.

Yes but...

This is scary. I like to think of it as baking a cake. Mystery-creepiness. You are currently baking a delicious cake that would give children nightmares. Make it 12+. Jump scares, gore, blood. Make it not for kids. Sex, not for kids Drinking, whatever, just don't let your kidjidos tell their friends at school, "yo! I want some tequila on ice!" Language: hell, shy, b****, @$$, and f

Recommended Rating: 16+ for graphic bloody violence, frightening scenes and language

This horror film has some graphic, bloody scenes of people getting stabbed by knives. Some of these scenes are prolonged and are unexpected. There are many jump scares, and the violent scenes have an intense atmosphere. This film may be too frightening and graphic for younger viewers. The main antagonist wears a costume and goes around stalking people. His appearance is unexpected and the murders that he does are explicit and may be too disturbing for some. There is frequent strong language, including almost two dozen F-words, and mild sexual references.

My favorite favorite movie

The original Scream is by far my favorite movie of all time. It's gory, it's dramatic, and it's pretty funny. As long as you're old enough and don't take it too seriously - you'll be fine.

Its just a movie

There are some horror movies you can't really take seriously and this was one of them. Not to say it wasn't scary but there were just some scenes you just had to laugh at. This movie at the same time is very good at drawing emotion out of people. Like when a girl almost survives the killer just in time so that her parents can watch her die. All in all if you can learn to realize that a movie is a movie then you will enjoy this movie.

Great Fun!

There is virtually NO language in this movie. Probably 10 f-words, tops. I *just* watched it and it is great. Pretty funny at times and very entertaining overall.

okay for older (and jaded) teens

this is a really smart movie because yes, teens are very sophisticated and jaded now, and that sophistication is built into the screenplay...BUT it is so over the top violent that the cleverness and humor was almost an afterthought.

If this wasn't a comedy, then I wouldn't have rated it 15 in here. It's very bloody. 16 year olds can handle it.
