This is a frequently asked question on Google. I’m providing an answer here.
In terms of genre, Edward Scissorhands is not a horror film. It is a romantic fantasy.
The film is rated U for Universal, and does not contain any genuinely scary moments. However, Edward Scissorhands has a typically Gothic appearance, with large razor-sharp blades for hands.
This can appear scary for some people, and certain misconceptions about him as a result of his appearance can make Edward Scissorhands misunderstood.
