Sex & Nudity

A giant baby's butt is seen.

Violence & Gore

Haku (dragon form) is chased by paper birds who cut him. His blood splatters everywhere in the room (over the walls, etc). His mouth also bleeds. The scene is quite long. The sound of blood being spat out is heard.

No-Face at one point goes on a rampage and eats people, but they are later spat out and revealed to be unharmed. He also vomits violently at different points, and is greedy and gluttonous.

A monster is made of many dirty substances. When Sen/Chihiro rips a fishing rod's lure & hook out of the monster, blood and mucus pour out of the hole.


Yubaba threatens to rip Sen's mouth off.

One character smokes a cigarette.

Kamiji has an ash tray with cigarettes in it.

Yubaba smokes a cigarette, smoke goes everywhere.

One character tells a customer that he can buy sake.

No-Face can be frightening at times.

The scene where No-Face goes berserk is quite frightening. He chases the girl. He eats people, although they are later spat up and revealed to be unharmed. He also vomits everywhere this disgusting looking black-goo, the sound-effects and voice acting is quite disturbing.

Some spirits are quite strange looking.

Chihiro's parents are turned into pigs.

The scene in which Haku is attacked by paper birds can be rather intense.

A very surreal, bizarre and beautiful film, which is expected from Hayao Miyazaki.
