Full frontal and rear female nudity in several scenes. Two other topless as well.

There's 2 short, non-graphic sex scenes and a 3rd implied one.

The goriest scene is where a guy gets his arm ripped off. LOTS of blood.

Other scenes include a panther's body being disected and then melting; a woman is clawed by a panther and we see a nasty clawmark on her ankle; another woman is seen dead, ripped to pieces with blood all over; a guy is seen dead in a tree.

The few brief transformation scenes are somewhat gruesome, showing splitting skin and heads.

Not much; 5 or less f-words.

Lots of disturbing or unusual scenes throughout. Some of those mentioned in violence/gore are intense, especially the arm-ripping scene.

Several frightening moments of shock and suspense involving the leopards, who often snarl and snap with little to no warning. The atmosphere of most of the movie is very dark and unpleasant. Children could be very frightened by this picture.

Suggested MPAA Rating: R for strong sexual content, graphic nudity, bloody violence, and some language
