Barely any.

Some mild flirting and kissing.


A child is hit by a motorcycle. The body is seen. This is very sad.

The major gore is filmed just out of camera view, but bloody bodies of fall, impalement, and mutilation victims are seen. This can be very disturbing.

Human on human violence includes brief shootings and beatings.

Pumpkinhead cuts people with his claws, and throws them around.


Moderate but infrequent; a few uses of the f-word.


One main character drinks a beer.


The creature may be frightening to younger viewers. Other than that, not many frightening elements other than a few jump scares.

The whole movie has a creepy, atmospheric feel.

The theme of the film sounds very haunted and scary.

There are lots of frightening images.

Total Content advisory: 25/50- pumpkinhead is not as gory as many other R-rated creature feature features, but still creepy and violent. 13+
