A man is chased around and terrorized by his dog, who foams at the mouth - he is killed offscreen, we see nothing graphic (except for a fake dog head that mutates a little)

A man is chased by a group of strange people carrying rakes, in defense he strikes one in the head and the head breaks open- white foam leaks out

A man begins to mutate graphically, his mouth expands and we see inside his head- he spews a big stream of white foam onto the floor

A man walking down a road is almost hit by a white truck

A man lies on the floor with his mouth horrifically distorted and mutated, white foam spews outward like a river. Later he gets up and looks completely normal.

A man is hit by a truck and his head explodes (bloodless)

A man is shot in the cheek, red hole is briefly shown. Others are shot and bleed white goo

There is almost no usage of profanity whatsoever. Some bitches and damns

People are shown on television eating at a fancy restaurant and most likely have alcohol in their glasses

A young child's family try to terrorize him at night while acting very strangely. The boy doesn't seem scared but the scene is very creepy. Tons of white goo envelope a man and climb a wall. A bunch of dead "stuff " victims lie on the floor

R-Sci-Fi Violence/Gore. By today's standards this film is PG13.
