Jump Scare Rating: There are a couple of undeniably creepy moments around 30 minutes into the movie however viewers that can get through these scenes shouldn’t have too many problems with the rest of the movie. Veronica relies more on atmosphere than jump scares however there are still a few shocks scattered through the middle and later parts of the film.
