Mild innuendo.

A nude painting of a woman is briefly seen.

There is war violence that isn't shown too graphic. There is lots of weapons used in it for harm. A monster's head is taking off by clippers, not very graphic, but can be scary. A kid is kidnapped by two creatures.

Also a scene where there are several hands and monsters grabbing onto the main character's hands and head.

A skeleton vulture that shoots.

Main character's wife turns into a monster, then get's shot and some blood is shown.

Main character's hand is cut briefly by a knife.

A dead fish is shaking on the wall and main character shoots the fish with a shotgun and it gives a groan.

A monster's severed hand is walking and gets flushed in a toilet.

Those are about the main violent scenes, but there are few more.

2 uses of the 'F' word, the 'Sh' word is used a lot. 'Bitch' is used few times. And other not-too-violent swearing.

A few frightning scenes where a woman turns into a huge monster, some war violence, skeletons walking, and being blow up. Threats of killing a boy. A suicide by an old woman.
