A woman's breasts are visible through a see-through nightgown.

There is persistent gore throughout the film. Alien creatures with many teeth bite and mutilate a number of characters, with bloody results. Body parts are chewed, heads are bitten off, a woman's face is graphically eaten, etc. A girl is decapitated and her headless corpse is viewed several times and her head is eaten very visibly and graphically. The violence is very over the top but gory, and the tone is not serious or realistic, but is not appropriate for kids.

One F-word, used in a non-sexual context. Shit is used once, at the end.

There are no scenes of drugs or alcohol. There are very few glimpses of cigarettes in the film, if any.

Characters are stalked by predatory alien creatures. The tone of the film is very comic-book, but could be taken seriously by very young children.
