We see a couple making out while in a parked car, his hand inside her blouse.


The violence is extremely graphic, bloody and disturbing throughout

A man hangs himself.

We see a child's rotten body; full of worms...

In a room glass shatters and suddenly blood starts dripping from the walls and the glass for no reason.

A woman tries to claw herself out from a coffin, this results in her losing some fingernails (and I mean the whole fingernail). Blood is seen drenched on the parts where the woman was clawing furiously.

A woman cries tears of blood before vomiting up her own intestines.

A demon squeezes a man's head, which then results in brain matter + skull fragments splatter everywhere. The demon takes the brain matter, and we see the man's empty and bloody head.

A demon shoves some kind of gory bits into a woman's mouth and then proceeds to strangle her to death.

A man is drilled through the head, blood comes out from the nose and mouth.

An undead old lady bites a huge chunk off of a man's hand.

A kid sees a bloody, decomposed woman staring at him outside his door.

Some windows open violently, and then strong winds throw enormous amounts of maggots inside a room where 4 people are in. They stick to their faces and body, and just go everywhere! Soon the room is absolutely full of them (so that the floor looks white). A woman gets some maggots inside her mouth and vomits on the maggots under her. A very disgusting scene that happens out of nowhere.

A dead woman kills her own parents off-screen. We hear that she ate their flesh.

Blood is seen dripping from the ceiling onto the dinner table (on the food and drinks). We see a big puddle on the ceiling that drips the blood.

A dead woman rips off a mortal woman's scalp. Her brain is seen in gory detail.

An undead man is seen eating a dead man's tongue. Then two corpses are shown, and they are partially eaten.

Another dead woman rips off another persons scalp. This time of a man. But this time rats are then seen eating the leftover brain matter...

The dead rise from their graves, and they look absolutely rotten.

A boy is pulled by a very decomposed and disgusting demon/zombie.

A man impales the main villain with a wooden cross, killing it. You see the cross impale the demon, and lots of gore is shown. All the bodies of the dead then start to burn and melt.

10/10 Very Graphic and extremely disturbing throughout

Use of profanity wasn't that present; some sh*ts were scattered throughout along with uses of b*tch and crap

Some religious exclamatioms like "hell", "damn", etc..

Nothing too strong


A man tends a bar. We never actually see anyone drink, but we see beer. There are also several refrences to being drunk.

Constant use of smoking


There are quite a few "jump" scenes.

The whole film has this very frightening and eerie tone throughout

The scenes mentioned in the violence/gore catagory can be considered frightening.

Some may find the gore disturbing.

We see a man hang himself.

The maggot scene is extremely gross.

The movie has a dark, gothic tone which heightens the scare factor


Total Content Estimation: 31/50

If your child has seen Dawn of The Dead, Zombie, or anything involving demons/zombies, they should be fine
