PG-13 for Creature Violence, and Language.


A woman gets her pants pulled off, but she still has her underwear on. There is no sex in it.

A man and woman kiss at the end.


People are eaten by the monsters but there is no gore since they get pulled underground. There are some scenes in which dead bodies are shown. One of the monsters gets killed by running into a slab of concrete. Another monster is shot to death by two people. Another monster dies by getting blown up. The last one falls off a cliff and lands on hard rocks and smashes open. A lot of orange blood is seen.

The upturned face of a dead man (killed by a monster) is dramatically revealed.

A dozen lambs are seen cut up, with blood covering the ground.

A man is seen dead, died from dehydration.


There are quite a few scenes that contain profanity. This is mainly towards the more intense spots though. 1 F-Word, 21 S-words, 39 uses of damn, 7 goddamn, 9 "sons of bitches' and "son of a bitch" and 41 uses of hell.

1 middlefinger.

The spanish version has a lot of profanities. 9/10


People are seen drinking and smoking in some scenes.


The scenes where the monsters attack may be frightening and intense for younger children

People are pulled underground with creatures eating them from underneath, and other people are forced to watch their loved ones be devoured. This is especially disturbing.

Lots of guns fired, especially in a scene in which two characters are attacked in their basement.

Horses are used in stunts, but the movie was rated "Acceptable" by the AHA.


Spanish version:28/50
