Jump Scares:  18 (3 major, 15 minor)

Jump Scare Rating: The sudden appearance of the werewolf in various scenes provides the basis for most of the jump scares. Loud sound effects play during these moments in an attempt to amplify these scares. A “one-two” punch is used on more than one occasion where a small jump scare is followed by a much larger one a few seconds later.
