Doctor Strange 2 Has Jump Scares And “Scenes Of Horror,” Says Rating

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

With CinemaCon currently in full effect, film news has been pouring out of the event regarding many of the movie industry’s biggest releases. Featured in Marvel’s presence at the convention, the imminent release of awaited sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has yielded all kinds of details as of late. With that said, some of the more intriguing teases have been revealed outside of the big event, with a recent rating suggesting some serious scares in store for the magical Marvel movie.

These new deets come from the British Board of Film Classification, or BBFC, wherein the PG-13 release is said to incorporate multiple jump scares as well as several intense “scenes of horror.” Much of what the board describes was spotted in previous trailers, recounting “demonic beings,” a reanimated corpse, and “frequent scenes of threat” where our heroes are “threatened with magical torture.” Things get a bit more spoilery from here on out, so skip the next paragraph if you don’t want to know more.

New Doctor Strange

In addition to these so-called “scenes of horror,” events in Doctor Strange 2 are teased to go even further than that with what sounds like a pretty violent murder spree. These “brief gory injuries” include a person being burned into “charred remains,” while someone else is “impaled,” and another is “cut in half” offscreen. One of the more memorable quotes recalls someone “devastating a man’s head,” which definitely doesn’t sound like a good time, at least for the aforementioned ‘man.’

Though Strange isn’t a stranger to fantastical violence (“Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain!”), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness definitely appears to be upping the ante in terms of terror. Of course, that may have much to do with the sequel’s director Sam Raimi, a horror filmmaking icon who has proven his spooky prowess with the likes of Drag Me To Hell and the Evil Dead franchise under his belt. Also a legend in the comic book realm via the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies, the new Doctor Strange certainly has plenty to warrant all the hype.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releases in theaters on May 6th.
