The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Note: The number at the beginning of each section refers to how much explicit content of that kind there is in the film on a scale of 1-10. The fraction at the end of the last section is the total sum of the sections over the highest sum possible (50) and is therefore an approximation of about how explicit the film is a whole.

Sex & Nudity: 3

There are several incestuous sex scenes that include at least a degree of sensuality, sometimes kissing and scenes of both presumed and portrayed sex.

Violence & Gore: 8.5

(High,Graphic)While driving, a teacher has Charles pull over to have a chat, then the teacher gets sexually aggressive and gets his hand ripped off by the student (blood splatters on the windshield), we see a fountain of blood squirting from the bloody stump on his arm.

(Low)Charles gets slapped by his mother.

(Medium,Bloody)Charles gets stabbed in the eye with a corkscrew (blood pours from his socket).

(Medium)A police officer is stabbed with a pencil in the ear, he then shoots Charles in the back (but he doesn't die), then he takes the gun from the officer and shoots him in the stomach.

(Low)A police officer steps in a bear trap.

Mary lifts two cops bodily off the ground and kills them by slamming their heads together with her super strength.

(High)Another office has some of his fingers bit off (blood pours from the stumps), then gets his arm twisted which causes a bone to pop out.

(Medium,Bloody)Then another gets stabbed with the ear of a corn, dropping to the floor (he is left in a pool of blood).

(Medium,Intense)Plus another gets thrown and gets his arm clawed in a bear trap, then is impaled on a picket fence.

(Medium,Intense)A girl is pulled out of a police car through a broken window (in the process, her arm is getting dragged on a piece of glass).

The creatures in this film are very strong and powerful to do most of these graphic things.

Multiple use of the f word.

The sight of dead cats hanging at the beginning of the film may be upsetting.

A rotten corpse falls out of a closet.

A woman breaks the neck of a cat.

Some people are seen on fire.

Rated R for strong violence and sensuality, and for language.
