MPAA Rated R for strong grisly violent content and some language/sexual references

Sex & Nudity

  • 5/10
  • Sexual attraction between Hannibal and his aunt by marriage (brief passionate kiss between them); verbal reference to Lady Muraski "p-y"; Grutas keeps a sex slave and forces her to bathe him in a tub; he appears out of the tub with a towel around his waist
  • A man licks a woman's face and forced kiss on her and he tries to rape her.

Violence & Gore

  • 9/10
  • (might contain spoilers, but this describes explicit details)
  • Men kill and then cook and then eat Hannibal's sister (we only see the men getting ready to kill her taking her outside, then flash to a cauldron with a man tasting the contents).
  • Hannibal cuts a man several times with a katana, before slicing off his head from a distance. We later see his head.
  • A guy is given some injection to make him remember. (he is then put under the guillotine off screen) Hannibal sees this a bit later in the scene and asks what's going on. When the police tell him, he waits until no one's looking and then takes the drugs to use on himself so he can remember the people that killed his sister.
  • Hannibal ties a guy up to a tree, connects the rope to a horse and then moves the horse forward; the man's eyes turn bloody and eventually his eyeballs pop out (off screen) spraying blood all over hannibals face.
  • Hannibal knocks a guy out and then puts him into an air support lift like device and drops him into a water tank. He sprays him first and then later closes the tank up. The tank fills with water drowning the guy.
  • Hannibal creates a diversion to try and kill another guy.
  • He tortures very badly before killing the same man (after promising he'd make it quick) by biting his face and carving an 'M' on his chest.
  • Hannibal goes to the last killer to collect his head (we don't see anything happen though).
  • Hannibal stabs a man in the leg with a cork screw, and then stabs a knife through the bottom of his neck, driving it through the top of his head. (blood pours out the mans mouth)


  • 6/10
  • A few F-words, and some other mild and derogatory language. Nothing too extreme since this is set several years back.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 9/10
  • The movie has a very dark tone and really is made for adult audiences.
  • There are several disturbing scenes like, Hannibal torturing his victims before killing them by making them sing a song. They do quivering and Hannibal taunts he can't hear them.
  • Hannibal while at a boys home has nightmares about his sister. When he makes noises in his sleep the orderlies take him and make him sleep in the basement.
  • See Violence for more.
  • Total: 36/50
