Scream (2022) is Rated R because it’s a Scream movie. People get stabbed (like a lot), slashed, shot, stomped, scorched. There is smoking, necking, groping, swears, and I promise you’ll have a lot of fun watching people die.
The Runner (2022) is unrated, but let’s give it a PG-13 for lots of blood, a corpse, bloody frontal bits, and an organectomy through the chest wall. You’re coming for the music, not the story.
The Last Radio Call (2022) is unrated, but let’s call it PG-13 for swears, a legitimately terrifying creature and fantastic audio editing, creepy scares, people getting shot, a severed head, the aftermath of a gunshot suicide, and police just letting themselves into places without a warrant.
The 355 (2022) is rated PG-13 for swears, people getting punched a lot – in the face, the ribs, the crotch, people getting shot, planes falling from the sky, people getting stabbed, explosions, and really awkward 2nd Base sexytimes.

The 2022 edition of the SXSW Conference and Festivals has announced the World Premiere of Everything Everywhere All At Once as the Opening Night Film.
The Southeastern Film Critics Association Names Jane Campion’s ‘The Power of the Dog’ as the Best Picture of 2021. Campion’s haunting and soulful western also won for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Director.
The Advent Calendar (2021) is unrated and most of the violence is implied or off-screen, but I’m giving it a hard R for French swears, sexytimes that end badly, attempted rape, people getting slashed, terrible car accidents, a drowning, a head-shot, and animal death.
