PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi creature violence and gore, language and brief sexuality.

Very mild suggested sex.


A few bloody bite marks from the critters. They are graphic.

We see the corpse of a mutilated cow.

The bounty hunter's face ' melts' into a skull and transforms into a different person.

Critters attack a man and bite him on the shoulder. Graphic, lots of blood.

People are shot by poisoned quills, large bumps are seen.


A decent amount of swearing for a mainly teen-marketed film.

One of the critters shout's 'fuck' (in critter language) but it is subtitled on the screen.


Casual smoking and drinking.

A character gets drunk.


Some frightening scenes when the family fight the critters
