Sex & Nudity

A woman wears a skimpy wet t-shirt in the opening. She changes it in front of men but no explicit nudity is seen.

Some kissing and some cleavage.

Violence & Gore

Strong, graphic violence involving monsters that are seen eating people. Some parts are onscreen and off.

A woman is grabbed into a toilet by an unseen creature in a bathroom while she is struggling to hold onto objects. A lot of blood is shown as she is being sucked into it.

A man is killed offscreen (blood sprays though).

A man is dragged by one beasts and hits his head hard on a pipe (blood sprays).

Men shoot at the creature's tentacles which have mouths at the tips.

A man is streaked in the head with an axe.

The main characters encounter a ship's hallway covered in bloody skeletons of people who were killed in monster (blood is all over the walls).

A man accidentally steps on a bloody skull (which crunches).

A man shoots at a giant tentacle, the part he was shooting at splits open and a half digested man falls out still alive. When he turns around it is revealed that the left side of his head is gone (his brain is visible, and so is part of his skull. Bones in his hand are visible as well --very graphic).

A man is eaten alive by a tentacle.

People enter a huge room loaded with hundreds of bloody skeletons.

A man is grabbed by the beast and is killed off (you can't see him being eaten because it's in water).

A man is eaten alive by a tentacle, he screams as he's being eaten.

A woman is jerked back by one of the beasts and eaten (this is a jump scare).

The monster is revealed. It is a giant octopus like creature with tentacles that have mouths, and a mouth with rows of teeth. The monster picks up a man who is holding a gun, first the monster lets out a roar, then looks at the man, the man then pulls out his gun and shoots the creature in the eye, causing it's eye to explode (but it doesn't kill it, it just lost an eye).

The ship explodes with the monster in it. The monster explodes as the explosion hits it.


Even though the MPAA rating doesn't say it has any language, there is some profanity in the film.

A few people drink alcohol and someone smokes a cigarette.

Many frightening scenes throughout the film. We see tentacles come out of nowhere. These tentacles have mouths at the end, which allows them to eat people.

One man is regurgitated by a dying creature. He is seen from the back screaming and then turns around to reveal that most of the flesh on his face has been eaten away with bones and brains exposed.

Near the end, we see a gigantic octopus, which the tentacles are attached to.
