Sex & Nudity

Rated R for violence and horror

Sex & Nudity: 3/10

A man and a woman passionately kiss, the man later mentions something about "pillow talk", meaning things he said during sex.

In the Director's cut, they are seen kissing in bed and sex is even more heavily implied.

A woman has her top ripped off is forced to kiss an undead character with a skinless face. The scene is not frightening as much as it is grotesque, no nudity is shown besides her back.

A brief glimpse of a side-breast is seen as a slave woman walks across the screen, apparently wearing vertical brown strips, which only cover her nipples. The rest of her breasts are visible. However, it is very dark, and only for a second. Nothing graphic is ever shown.

Violence & Gore

Violence & Gore: 6/10

Skeletons attacking a castle, they get chopped by Ash and his knights. Obviously no blood.

A man is pushed into a pit, and a ridiculous fountain of blood sprays out. Not disturbing at all, but comical.

Ash is trapped inside the pit with a deadite he gets beaten up by it a bit. He gets his chainsaw, and decapitates the deadite. Blood sprays on the wall and the head falls down in the water.

As Ash is on the ground, skeleton hands come out and grab his legs and he falls. They grab his face, and twist his nose and punch him. Some blood is shown.

Ash shoots a witch with a shotgun, there's no blood.

A man gets a cut down his cheek, little blood.

The whole movie is about fighting skeletons so there is hardly and blood nor gore.


Profanity: 5/10

One Very Faint F-word, a couple S-words.

Other language, like "ass" and "damn"

(PG-13 type Profanity)

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 0/10


Frightening/Intense Scenes: 6/10

In the beginning, a recap shows Ash cut off his hand, kill his girlfriend with a chainsaw, and fight Henrietta.

An object that is never shown follows him through the woods.

An army of skeletons and undead invades a castle.

A graveyard comes alive and many skeleton hands assault a man walking above.

A witch pretends to be dead. Suddenly, she wakes up surprisingly. This may be a jump scare.

The main villain is a reanimated corpse who's entire body is covered in burnt flesh. This may be a tad scary to some, but it isn't very graphic.

In the Director's cut, the film does not have a happy ending.

NOWHERE near as gory as Part One or Two, but the recap is a bit violent.

Probably could have passed as a PG-13.

Total: 24/50
