See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 6 jump scares in Ghostwatch, which has a jump scare rating of 1.0.

Jump Scare Rating: Very similarly to The Blair Witch Project (which this movie surprisingly predates by 7 years), Ghostwatch was initially broadcast as if it was real footage and a lot of the scares come from its authenticity. Unlike The Blair Witch Project, however, Ghostwatch does occasionally utilize more common scare tactics and feels more in line with modern found footage. There are just a few sudden loud sounds and minor jump scares to watch out for.

Synopsis: The BBC broadcasts a halloween special live show in which the TV crew report on a house owned by a single mother and her two daughters that is supposedly haunted.
