Sex & Nudity

Sex & Nudity: 4/10

A man and a woman kiss passionately and lie back on a stage; she removes her jacket and he puts his hand on her clothed breast (they are interrupted).

Violence & Gore

Violence & Gore: 9/10

A young man leans against the wall of a bathroom stall and is stabbed in the head (blood pours from his mouth and seeps onto his hand from his head; we also see the bloody knife and blood pooling under him after he falls to the floor, dead).

A young woman touches the killer's shoulder in a movie theater (she thinks it's her boyfriend) and blood rubs off on her hands; she is then stabbed in the stomach (we see blood stains on her shirt) and runs into the aisle; at the same time, a young woman is being stabbed repeatedly in the chest on the movie screen (we see the bloody wounds and knife); the young woman in the audience is stabbed repeatedly in the back (blood seeps out of her mouth and we see the bloody knife).

A young woman violently slaps a woman in the face.

A young woman is chased up a staircase by the killer; she throws a potted plant in his face and shoves a bicycle into him; she runs to an attic, where he grabs her and throws her through a glass door onto a balcony; she is then stabbed twice in the back (we briefly see the bloody wound and blood is shown on the knife) and thrown over the balcony (we hear her hit the ground below and see her corpse surrounded by blood).

The killer appears, wielding a knife, and a young woman shoves him against a table; he stabs at her, hitting a door instead and nearly stabbing a young man on the other side; he chases her outside, falling and knocking over several objects; the young man goes inside and is attacked by the killer off-screen (he is later shown with a bloody arm wound).

A young man is pulled into a van and thrown against a window, which fractures slightly; he is then stabbed repeatedly (we only see the bloody knife coming up and down and hear him screaming); blood seeps out from under the door of the van and we later see his bloody corpse.

A woman is attacked by the killer and he stabs at her, hitting a stage instead; a man rushes towards them, but ends up falling down several stairs (we later see him with a bloody head wound); the woman hits the killer in the face with a telephone; she watches through a window as the man is stabbed twice in the back and thrown against the glass (blood pours from his mouth and we see the bloody knife; we later see his blood on another man's hands and on the woman's neck).

The killer breaks through the driver's seat window of a police car and slits a man's throat with his knife (blood pours from the wound and drips from his mouth); another man is kicked in the head, beaten repeatedly against a window (a little blood is shown), and thrown over the hood of the car; the killer drives into him and crashes into a construction site, causing the man to be impaled through the head by a metal pole (we see his bloody nose and the pole sticking out of his head surrounded by blood; the killer is knocked unconscious).

A young woman is stabbed repeatedly with a knife (we see her being stabbed once and then hear squishing off-screen; her bloody corpse is then shown).

A young man is shot in the chest (blood pours) by another young man with a bloody head wound; a young woman hits him in the face with a necklace and kicks him; they knock each other to the floor and he slams her against a window (she has a bloody cut on her face and they have some blood on their arms and hands).

A woman shoots a man repeatedly in the chest (blood spurts and sprays and we see blood on a column behind him); as he falls to the floor, he shoots another woman in the stomach and she falls off of a stage (we see the bloody bullet wounds on each of them).

A young woman bashes a woman over the head with a glass bottle (we briefly see the bloody wound); the woman shoots at the young woman, hitting several stage cables instead; the young woman breaks open a glass case and grabs a fire axe, using it to destroy several stage controls and causing spotlights and other objects to fall and explode, nearly striking the woman; several prop stones fall onto the woman and she is knocked unconscious; she then attacks the young woman with a knife (she now has a bloody face) and the young woman punches her repeatedly; the woman knocks her to the floor and holds the knife to her throat; a man then enters the room and shoots the woman in the chest (we see her bloody corpse).

A young man, supposedly dead (he is covered in blood), leaps up and two women shoot him repeatedly, killing him; one woman then shoots a supposedly dead woman in the head (we see the bloody bullet wound).


Profanity: 8/10

At least 36 F-words, some sexual references, 26 scatological terms, 17 anatomical terms (1 mild), 11 mild obscenities, 3 religious profanities, 23 religious exclamations.

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 5/10

A woman is briefly shown smoking a cigarette.

Several young men and women drink alcoholic beverages at a sorority/fraternity rite of passage; they pour large amounts of alcohol onto a young man who is tied up (we see him passed out later).

Many gruesome death scenes.

The dividing wall scene and the climax is intense.

The whole movie, is praticially intense.
