Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

None.

Violence & Gore

Multiple murders involving a razor blade (bloody but not very graphic).

Many dead bodies are found.

We see the silhouette of a dead tortured man whose penis has been stuffed in his mouth.

A man stabs himself in the hand with a pencil.

A man is kicked so hard into an object he dies instantly.

At the end of the movie, countless sparrows rip the flesh off a man and pluck out one of his eyes, in a rather long and gruesome sequence. The man's body is literally destroyed, and only his bloody skeleton remains. Very graphic and disturbing.

Profanity

Some mildly strong language is heard, although not excessively nor constantly.

Cigarettes smoked in one close up scene.

A lady smokes on a pipe.

Brief alcohol drinking.

The scene where many sparrows devour a man's body is very intense and gory, absolutely not for young or sensitive viewers.

The whole movie is about the murderous alter-ego of a man.

Rated R for violence/gore and language - Suitable for ages 14 and up
