Suggested rating: R for strong creature violence, terror, disturbing images, and language including some sexual references and brief nudity.


Some women are seen in just bra and panties.

A man stares at a woman's clothed breasts and says "what a pair". The woman then figures that he likes her boobs.

A man walks into a room in his underwear, bare legs are visible, he's wearing a shirt. He just came to grab a porno magazine (you couldn't really see what was on the magazine though).

A man lying on a bed looks at a poster of a topless woman (this is completely visible), he then says that he wants her to sit on his face.

It's implied a guy is nude as he steps out of a shower. No real nudity is seen.

A woman is naked, but you don't really see anything.

A woman takes a shower while wearing bra and panties.


The creature looks very gory and disturbing.

A man gets a very nasty rash on the side of his neck, then he gets one on his arm and starts itching it.

Graphic holes and marks in decomposing skin are seen.

A woman takes a shower and the water is hurting her.

The creature slashes at a man's chest.

A nasty leech-like creature sucks on a man's stomach. It leaves a slimy and bloody mess on the man's stomach and chest, as well as his hands for trying to get it off.

A man grows a mouth with sharp teeth on the palm of his hand.

The creature is attacked with various tools, and shot with flamethrowers.

Parts are severed off the creature (limbs and tentacles). This results in gore and splitting blood.

The creature's head get's crushed in an elevator (blood sprays). But it revives.

The creature rises from out of the water and attacks one of men who almost survives through the entire movie. The creature claws at his head while pulled under water and he sinks dead.

The creature gets a dynamite thrown into it's mouth and it explodes with chunks flying everywhere.

A man punches a woman in the face with no warning - knocking her out.

When the creature is mutating with infected people their faces and body parts are seen sticking out of the creature in various places. This is very disgusting, gory, and disturbing.


Two or three uses of the f-word, including a use of "motherf***er". A few uses of bitch or "son of a bitch", as well as the s-word, plus the sexual references.


Vodka is shown and drunk by two characters.


Not many scares, but there's a few intense moments here and there.

Many gross and disturbing images throughout, such as slimey monsters, nasty sores, dead bodies, and some of the moments in Violence and Gore.

Total Content Advisory: 30/50- This movie doesn't have as many jump scares as most modern horror films, but it is very intense and gory. 14-15+
