Jordan Peele is returning once again to encourage audiences to think differently whilst experiencing his unique narratives with Nope.

Ahead of the film’s US release, we discuss if Nope is scary or not and break down the age rating and parents’ guide before you go to see it in theatres.

Written and directed by Jordan Peele, the science fiction horror comedy Nope stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yeun, following residents of a remote town who witness strange happenings occurring in the sky that may be related to extraterrestrials.

Is Nope scary?

Despite being labeled as a science-fiction comedy horror, Nope does not lean into the horror elements.

Slate reported that while there are a few unnerving scenes and images, the majority of the film takes place developing the characters in a somewhat safe environment free from terror.

The report also ranked Nope on the same level as Jurassic Park in terms of suspense and gore, and on par with Beetlejuice when it comes to the spookiness.

Nope’s age rating and parents’ guide explored

Despite the aforementioned, Nope has still been awarded an R-rating in the US but has received a 12A in the UK.

The harsher rating states that Nope includes strong violence, hand-to-hand combat, frightening, scary, and intense scenes, bloody content, profanity use, and head injuries.

Slate’s report also stated that while some bloody content is present, Jordan Peele often shows the gore out of frame or shrouded in darkness.

Fans discuss Nope’s scare factor

Many fans of horror and Jordan Peele’s movies are asking the public if they think Nope is scary as part of a warning to other viewers.

One writer said that Nope is not as spooky as Peele’s last film, Us, but does stand as an “unnerving sci-fi thriller”.

I wish I wasn’t a wuss but I just need to know how scary NOPE is or isn’t so I can properly prepare myself mentally— Zac Pacleb (@ZacPacleb) July 20, 2022

Us is so good! Nope is not as terrifying or spooky. It’s an unnerving sci-fi thriller. Not as scary as Us. Scarier than Get Out.— José Youngs (@JoseYoungs) July 20, 2022
