Are you looking for the ultimate Scream 6 age rating and parents guide so you can decide if you want your family to see the film? We don’t blame you because Scream 6 has been called the goriest and scariest installment in the Scream franchise since the original came out in 1996. Scream 6 has been rated R for intense, bloody violence and language throughout and brief drug use by the MPAA.

An R-rated film is unsuitable for minors. In this case, content is not suitable for those under 17 years of age. Those under 17 must be accompanied by an adult (at least 18 years old). To put this rating into perspective, an R rating is equivalent to the TV-MA rating by the TV Parental Guidelines and an M rating by the video game rating body, ESRB.
