SCREAM is a horror film about a group of friends who are stalked and terrorised by a masked murderer intent on killing them.


There are frequent scenes of strong bloody violence in which people are killed after being terrorised, stalked and chased by a masked figure wielding a large knife. Most of the killings involve characters getting stabbed, shot or having their throat slashed with strong bloody detail. There is a scene in which a character attempts to crawl through a cat flap and has her head decapitated by a garage door.

There are uses of strong language including 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker'.
