Sex & Nudity

  • 3/10
  • Two people have sex, but there is no nudity, as they are both under covers. There is some slight thrusting, and much moaning.
  • A mutant attempts to rape a teenage girl. He starts to kiss her, but he is interrupted and stops.

Violence & Gore

  • 6/10
  • The violence is fairly moderate. It is nowhere near as graphic as the remake.
  • A man is discovered impaled to the wall of an outhouse. Some blood is on him.
  • After a dog is killed, it is briefly shown with its guts ripped out.
  • A man is burned alive, his horribly charred body is seen several times during the rest of the film. At one point a mutant starts eating the man and is seen chewing his flesh.
  • A bird is taken, has it's head ripped off, and it's blood squeezed into the mouth of a mutant.
  • Two people are shot; this is not very bloody, and shown for a second.
  • A mutant is stabbed; blood pours out of the wound.
  • A mutant is attacked by a dog twice. The first time, his ankle is ripped open, shown in a very graphic close up, and the second time, his throat is ripped open until he dies. This is shown in quick, extreme close ups an not very graphic at all.
  • A mutant has a hatchet embedded in his back. When this fails to kill him, he is shot several times.
  • Another mutant is stabbed many times, but this is shown in first person, so not much blood is apparent. A little is on his corpse afterwards.


  • 3/10
  • Moderate profanities; several "damns and goddamns," a few "shits," and one use of "fuck."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 2/10
  • Some smoking of cigarettes. Characters also drink whiskey.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 6/10
  • Despite the very gory nature of Craven's previous film "Last House on the Left", this film is not very bloody, irregardless of the numerous violent acts committed. Most of the horror is psychological, used to keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
