“Scream VI” Has the Potential to Be 100 Times Gorier Than Any Previous “Scream” Movie

Paramount Pictures’ new suspense thriller Scream VI starring Jenna Ortega, has been rated R-18 Without Cuts by the Movie & Television Review & Classification Board (MTRCB).

Why is Scream VI Rated R-18?

The MTRCB reached an R-18 decision as “the film contains a graphic but non-gratuitous depiction of horror, frightening scenes, violence, and gore that may not be suitable for viewers below eighteen (18) years of age.”

This means horror fans are guaranteed to watch Scream VI in its integral, original version as the filmmakers intended it to be seen when it opens nationwide on March 8.

Melissa Barrera on Scream VI

Scream VI cast member Melissa Barrera recently told Collider that the upcoming sequel has the potential to be 100 times gorier than any previous entry in the long-running horror franchise. According to the actor, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett were always asking to increase the amount of blood on set.

“With the last Scream, they were tip-toeing and trying to be very respectful of what the franchise had been up until that point, and keeping their inner gory dreams at bay,” Melissa shares. “But with this one, they were like, ‘We’re going all out.’ It’s potentially a hundred times gorier.”
