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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Strong sexual innuendo. More than half of the film takes place in the "Titty Twister." A woman puts her foot in a man's mouth and he sucks on it. Women dance, gyrate and caress themselves suggestively with their buttocks and breasts showing. Most of the nudity is in the background but a few times breasts are clearly seen for extended periods.

Violence & Gore

The gore and violence are relentless and explicit. Body parts are torn apart and we see heads and arms and legs rolling around, a vampire band plays guitar on a limbless body, several decapitated heads are still alive, a vampire's heart is ripped out and continues beating, a teenager is attacked by many vampires and we see them feeding on him (much blood). There are many vampires with hideous, deformed faces, vampires "melt" when they're killed, vampires explode and burst into flames, vampires suck people's necks (with lots of spurting blood). Two people are shot, one in the head with buckets of blood. A man has a hole shot through his hand: we see the bloody wound throughout the film. A hostage is killed and we see flashes of spattered blood and a bloody body. A man is set on fire. People are beaten up a few times (some blood).

Profanity

Around 140 F words

The word "pussy" is used 27 times in less than a minute.

There is a lot of drinking and smoking throughout the picture.

The movie is very intense. Part of it involves a family being used as hostages for robbers and the rest involves everyone being trapped in a bar with many vampires.
