See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 3 jump scares in The Suicide Squad, which has a jump scare rating of 1.0.
Jump Scare Rating: A couple of deaths happen out of the blue, and one of them can count as a “major” jump scare due to how loud and effective it is during an otherwise calm scene. Still, The Suicide Squad is an action movie that isn’t trying hard to be a “thriller”, and apart from those couple of moments, it should be a very comfortable watch even for the most jumpy viewers. In line with the official promotional materials which focus on the claim that “Anyone can die”, the descriptions below don’t mention any characters by name.
Synopsis: Incarcerated metahuman criminals are offered 10 years off their sentences if they successfully pull off a suicidal black ops mission in a small island country in the Caribbean.
