MPAA Rating: R

IMDb: 7.2/10  Rotten Tomatoes: 69%

Netflix (US): No

Jump Scares:  6 (1 major, 5 minor)

Jump Scare Rating: Although it is jumpier than either Hannibal or Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon should still be watchable by those who dislike jump scares. A scare at 78 minutes is the most significant and another at 21:32 might shock some viewers due to its sudden and unexpected nature.
