The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

SUGGESTED MPAA RATING: PG-13 for disturbing violent content and mature thematic elements

Some kissing, not bad.

Violence & Gore

A man/woman is punched.

A woman attempts to poison a man repeatedly.

In the end of the film two characters are attacked, one resulting in a fistfight, the other character tries to escape, but we learn later that she has had all of her limbs cut off and deformed such that she can only squawk as opposed to talk, this is probably the most frightening moment in the film.

Profanity

Some characters get drunk, and a man smokes a cigar.

Some younger children might be frightened by some of the freaks, since they are deformed, however it should be understood that the entire point of the film is that they are possibly better people than those who are "normal", and that as freakish as they may look, they are not freaks.

The ending can be considered frightening and intense (see violence and gore) and is aimed at rattling viewers.
