A woman asks a man if he would join her in bed. The woman is naked hiding the crucial parts behind the bars of the balcony.

A man jumps out of the bathtub fully naked, his private parts are not shown directly. The bathtub from above crashes through the roof and further through the flood leaving a big hole, when we see a naked woman sitting on the WC screaming and covering her breasts.

A few sexual references.

Several violent scenes.

A woman is killed in bed while awake by 20 or so scorpions.

PG-13 rated language. 1 f-word

Several of the aliens may frighten younger viewers. A child alien is seen. It's back legs snap backwards and starts to hop like a grasshopper. At the end, it is suggested that very few people are not aliens, and that those that aren't, will be watching the aliens from now on. It isn't a frightening scene, but the idea of it may frighten younger viewers.

Rated PG-13 for some sci-fi violence and terror, and for brief language
