A woman opens her jacket revealing a bit of her chest.

A phantom's tentacles wrap around a woman and at one point it seems as if it is touching her crotch (this scene is hard to decipher).


There are several attacks on humans by "phantoms": these are alien ghostly creatures that range in size; some look like squids, some like snakes with big sharp teeth, and others are nondescript forms; all phantoms can kill a human with one blow, and when a human is killed by a phantom it appears that the phantom pushes out a blue glow shaped like the human -- presumably his spirit -- and the human body is now lifeless.

A man is killed by a phantom and his blue glow is crunched by the phantom's big teeth.

A man nearly falls into a pit full of phantoms.

A huge ship gears up to shoot a cannon at a crater on a planet's surface (we hear lots of heavy doomsday music): when the cannon is fired it disintegrates a lot of phantoms.

An enormous phantom knocks a man and woman in a rover loose from the tethers attaching them to a flying ship and they crash to the planet's surface (the man is wounded and we see some blood on his head).

We hear a discussion about a man having been infected by a phantom and needing treatment: we see the man lying on a hospital table and he is shot in the chest several times (he jerks a bit) with a laser which tries to kill the alien that's presumably inside him.

There is a tense scene where a ship full of people flies through a tight cavern of rubble trying to evade phantoms.

A car with soldiers drives recklessly to avoid a phantom and it crashes, injuring a man and trapping him in the vehicle.

A man holds a loaded gun to his head.

There are several dream sequences, each giving more detail about the scene: the dreams are of a woman standing on an alien planet, a stampede of metal clad soldiers runs toward her, firing weapons over her head and all around her.

The planet begins to shake and rumble, a wave of fire burns and melts everything in sight and there's eventually a huge explosion, throwing a chunk of the planet hurtling into space.

Name calling (son of a bitch, but the "bitch" part is cut off by gun fire.)


General Hein is seen putting down a glass of liquor on his desk while talking to a soldier.


The many sights of the various ghost-like alien beings (some large, some small and many of them appearing monstrous and/or menacing) could be unsettling or scary to younger viewers (particularly when they pursue and/or kill humans).

Aki tells Gray a rather upsetting story about how one of the spirits was a terminally-ill little girl.
