MPAA Rating: R
Netflix (US): No
Jump Scares: 19 (7 Major, 12 Minor)
Jump Scare Rating: After a slowish start, The Crucifixion throws a ridiculous number of jump scares at the audience including many false scares and fake-outs. Rarely are these moments genuinely scary by themselves however the sound effects that accompany them are extremely loud compared to the previously quiet scenes and this will no doubt be off-putting for many viewers.
