'Scream' rated R-16 without cuts, to hold early screenings in PH


Paramount Pictures has announced that its US No.1 box-office hit Scream will hold special sneak previews in selected cinemas nationwide on Tuesday, Feb. 1.  Horror fans are advised to check with their favorite theaters for the screening hours and ticket prices.  

Scream has been rated R-16 Without Cuts by the Movie & Television Review & Classification Board (MTRCB).  Fans are guaranteed to see the film in its integral, original version, complete with all the “strong language, gore, and graphic depiction of murders.”  As Ben Travis of Empire Magazine writes, “In an era of elevated horror, it's a gloriously gory basement party.”

Scream will then have a wide regular release on Feb. 2. The latest installment brings back survivors from the 1996 Wes Craven classic to aid a new generation against Ghostface.
