Sex & Nudity


***Parents should know this movie has very graphic sexual content, including upper and lower female nudity and two sex scenes... One is a cartoon sexual fantasy (where a woman's cartoon vagina eats a man) the other is actual sex between two characters***

there are two versions of the film (and R-Rated and UNCUT) where do differ somewhat for all categories, so ill contrast the two for each.

the ^ signifies an event/scene and the *'s contrast the two versions



one character spends 99% of the movie tied to a bed fully nude spread-eagle style

*-- in the R-Rated cut, the vagina is blurred out and the amount of times she is shown are decreased, HOWEVER in the UNCUT, the vaginal area is NOT cut, and there are a few more scenes (with greater length) of this.

Ross goes to the strip bar to watch April perform.

*--Again, in the R-Cut the lower part is blurred, however in the UNCUT it isnt. In BOTH versions of the movie, he has a dream (in the form of a cartoon) that her vagina eats him

Ross has sex with April

*--In the R-rated the lower part for her is blurred out, in the UNCUT it isnt. The sex scene is the same length in both versions

*-- A young man masturbates in a sock very graphically. The young man is seen naked and masturbating whilst 'sex chatting' on the phone. He has a sock wrapped around his penis and he is seen using it to masturbate with. His bare buttocks are seen.

The Cook has a famous speech about "pussy".

*-- Explicit pictures on porno magazines including; a woman inserting a dildo into her vagina, a man performing oral sex on another man, etc.

*--In the R-Rated the word is beeped out (TV STYLE). In the UNCUT it says "pussy"

two scenes take place at a "Porn Shop"

*--In the R-rated, the lower half is blurred whenever a poster or DVD cover for a movie is shown. Nothing is cut in the UNRATED.

both versions of the film contain graphic sex jokes/references/ and dialogue and the two "sex scenes".

Violence & Gore


*there is a scene where cops bust the central crackhouse and a character gets a bullet in his crotch.

....nothing too graphic is shown in the R-Rated the X cut, the scene is a little bit more drawn out

...later on the boy is in the hospital, the doctor lifts up the sheet, and comments about the wound (no nudity or gore)

*a man has an unhealthy obsession with wrestling, and makes violent jokes about the men fighting and pretends to wrestle with other people

*at the end, a trailer full of chemicals explodes with the Cook trapped inside (nothing graphic, but it is implied he is burned alive)

*a character is kicked in the stomach then thrown off a porch into a garbage pile very roughly

*a character is punched in the face from another male after he hits some ladies in a store

....that same character is later punched in the face by another famale after he hits the same girls

...later on in the movie he is shown sleeping, and he has a bloodied nose and blackeye

all scenes involving drug use are very much shown down to the needle entering the skin and nose snorting powder (both versions)



nearly non-stop course language including many uses of the word "fuck"

A man calls a woman "Genghis Cunt".

including crude names for anatomical parts (pussy, dick, vagina, penis, nuts, etc.)

one scene includes a man giving a speech about "pussy"...several uses of the word and sexual references entail

( the sex-related words are cut out in the R-Rated version with beeps like on TV as if to draw more attention to the fact theyre being used)


the main theme of this movie is about Ross, a young boy who ends up getting a job as a errand driver for a Crystal Meth Cook.

*all characters are hooked on Meth, and use it constantly (in both versions) whether by shooting, eating or snorting it.

*most characters drink and smoke throught the movie (meth and cigarrettes)


The ending monologue leading up to the onscreen death/possible suicide of the Cook

the aforementioned scene of the boy getting shot in the crotch

the girl tied up to the bed is held against her will throughout the movie...which alot of people will consider sexual assault and rape.

a scene where 4 people have just done Meth together ...they are laying on the floor telling disturbing stories involving voodoo, sex, graphic car accidents, and death

a scene where two main characters are "crashing" and they go spastic while they are riding in a car

....they go on long and disturbing rants about love and is a very creepy scene in general with a dark eerie atmosphere

the drug using shots are graphically portrayed and are very intensely done

47/50 - ABSOLUTELY for 18+
