There is some nudity (female only) throughout the film, frontal and rear.

A character bathes, then is interrupted by another character. She stands up, completely naked, but only her back is seen.

A character falls into a deep pool of blood. The strong current tears all her clothes off, and we see her entire nude body. Her genitals are NOT seen, but there are several shots of her, butt, bare breasts and nipples. (about one minute)

A character is seen wearing a tattered kimono. We see her left breast and nipple. (about 15 seconds)


One character is eaten by a possessed piano - lots of blood.

A character drowns in a clock case full of blood.

A painting of a cat hoses out blood, causing a room to flood.

Several burst into flames.

A character has blood running down her kimono.

A decapitated head is shown; it then procedes to talk and bite a character in the hand, stomach, and rear.

Most of what is said above looks completely fake on screen.


One use of a mild obscenity.


A character smokes a pipe.


Bizarre and violent imagery throughout.

While violent, such scenes are not sadistic nor realistic and are handles in a cartoony, over the top manner.

Recommended MPAA Label: PG-13 for bizarre imagery, comic bloody violence, and nudity

Canada:14A / Canada:18A (Alberta) / Canada:13+ (Quebec) / Germany:16 / UK:15 (2009) / USA:Not Rated
