See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 11 jump scares in Cocaine Bear, which has a jump scare rating of 3.0.

Jump Scare Rating: Although [i]Cocaine Bear[/i] treats its silly premise in a very tongue-in-cheek way with a rather explicit emphasis on comedy, it is still an effective creature thriller nonetheless. There are multiple sequences of drawn out suspense played completely straight, and plenty of the jump scares peppered throughout the movie pack a decent enough punch.

Synopsis: In the hilly forests of Georgia in 1985, a black bear consumes large amounts of cocaine that was thrown off a drug runner’s plane during an emergency and goes on a murderous rampage, while several groups of people with conflicting interests roam the area.
