See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 6 jump scares in Pan’s Labyrinth, which has a jump scare rating of 1.5.
Jump Scare Rating: Plenty of creepy imagery (in particular the scenes with the pale man an hour in) but nothing that could really be considered a jump scare (other than some minor moments mentioned below). The bigger issue for most are the two or three scenes of brutal violence that are graphically depicted.
Synopsis: Set during the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, a young girl fascinated by fairy-tales escapes to a fantasy world after she is sent to live with her cruel step-father.
Director: Guillermo del Toro
Runtime: 119 minutes
