PG-13-Creature Violence, Partial Nudity and Language

A doctor observes young men for inguinal hernias, in which the young men need to drop their drawers. No Nudity

A girl is taking a shower. Most of the time we see her from shoulders up. A 1:12:40, a spider falls on the girl's head and the camera follows it as it runs down her body, across the cleavage of her breasts, down to her stomach and then to her foot. We also see her bare back in a few scenes. Her father and brother run into the bathroom while she's screaming, and she doesn't have a towel as we see her from the back, waist up, seeing the curve of one breast.

A corpse is seen in a box. (Not bloody though.)

A man has his toe bitten by a spider.

A squished spider is seen under a man's shoe.

Several scenes of people dying from spider bites, or their bodies after they have been sucked dry of blood. Sometimes, you see a close-up of the spider biting a person and a tiny bit of blood is shown exiting the bites.

A girl asks if 2 other children want to go with her and blow up a bull-frog.

There are a few swear words lightly throughout.

The Doctor is drinking wine with dinner. Also some other wine drinking.

It is implied that a woman has an alcohol problem.

The people jump from being scared of the spiders, and may be frightening to some people. The part at the end with the giant Spiders is also very frightening.
