Why is the horror film rated R?



One of the most anticipated horror films of the year arrives on October 29, 2021. But are drink horrors and thrills too scary for most fans of the genre? Can you watch if you scare easily? The film is rated R, but what for?

At Hidden Remote, we love horror movies! October is one of our favorite months because of all the Halloween fun. We look at it all! Family Halloween content, PG-13 thrills, and R rated slashers and horrors.

We understand, however, that not everyone can handle horror. You might be able to watch an R-rated movie, but it also depends on what it’s rated in the first place. Violence? Blood? Sexual content?

Horror fans may also wonder if their tough teenager can handle drink so that this weekend is a family movie night with the older ones. Now it is all really up to you because you know your kid the best, but even teens should stay away from some horrors. East drink one of them? Let’s find out!

Why is Antlers rated R?

To give you the best information, we went to Rotten tomatoes and Common sense media.

drink is rated R for language, gruesome images and violence. Okay so not as bad as a lot of us imagined. Most kids know better than copying bad language, but horrible pictures and violence? If it is rated R, both must be quite heavy. The gore is not mentioned, however, nor the sexual content.

Common Sense Media cautions that this film is “intense” and best suited for mature teens who like to be scared, not younger audiences.

What is Antlers talking about?

The horror mystery, about horror king Guillermo del Toro, follows a schoolteacher (Keri Russell) and her sheriff brother (Jesse Plemmons) as they get involved with a student who appears to be in need of help. But neither had a clue what they were meant for, and when an encounter leads them to a legendary ancestral creature, it’s too late.

drink is based on the short story “The Quiet Boy” by Nick Antosca. The Searchlight Pictures movie is in theaters October 29, 2021, a streaming release has not been announced.
