Rating & Content Info
Why is Goosebumps rated PG? Goosebumps is rated PG by the MPAA for scary and intense creature action and images, and for some rude humor
Violence: An over-protective parent shouts at his daughter and verbally threatens her friends. Inept police officers make threats about using force and arresting people. Teens trespass on private property, climb on rickety equipment, break-and-enter and impersonate law enforcement personnel. Characters face continuous perilous situations. Monsters, zombies, humongous bugs and other frightening creatures attack people – although both parties have murderous intents, no real deaths are implied. Characters are injured, knocked out and frozen (with an alien gun). Property damage, weapon use and explosions occur frequently – these depictions are usually non-graphic. Some scary and gruesome transformations are shown.
Sexual Content: Several characters hug and kiss, including teenaged couples. An adult who is trying to appear in touch with youth trends makes a reference to a sexual dance style. Girls wear strapless prom gowns. Brief potty humor and infrequent mild slang terms for body parts are used. A teen boy flirts with girls.
Language: The script includes frequent terms of deity used as expletives, along with infrequent mild profanity, name-calling and slurs.
Alcohol / Drug Use: None noted.
