Sex & Nudity

No sex or nudity at all in the movie (see discussion page)

Violence & Gore


The creatures in the woods are very tall, they have long sharp claws, the face of a boar with tusks, and pointed spines on their backs and a bony rib structure on the chest.

A man is stabbed in the stomach, he falls to the floor and is then stabbed in the chest (we hear him moan and see him twitch).

A man dies: he moans, we see blood in his mouth and he twitches slightly.

A young blind woman is chased by a creature, she hyperventilates and runs in terror. The creature lunges at her twice and then falls into a deep hole where it lies dead.

A young man on watch hears thumping on the door of a tower, he opens the door and sees a creature run past below; he rings an alarm bell and the people of the village run in fear to safe rooms under their homes.

A creature approaches a young blind woman, and she is grabbed by another man just before being snatched by the creature.

A young woman enters the woods and is very frightened as night falls and she hears many eerie noises.

Someone's hands are covered with blood.

There are several scenes where we see dead skinned animals on the ground, sometimes with twisted necks and once we see two hanging in a doorway.

The carcass of a creature hangs in a shed, and a young blind woman is frightened when she touches its claws.

A young woman falls into a deep hole, she dangles from tree roots and pulls herself up.

We hear about several people having been murdered: one was robbed and found nude floating in a river, one was shot in the eye, one was shot in his sleep, one was raped and murdered, and another was shot.

We hear screaming, and then two children tell of having seen creatures in the village.

A young man stands on a tree stump with his back to dark woods, we hear scary noises, and the young man is frightened and runs toward the village.

Part of a butchered pig is tossed into the woods, presumably as an offering.

We see eerie woods and hear frightening sounds (howling, low growls, creaking) coming from them.

A young woman discovers a badly wounded man, she screams as she is dragged away from him and we see her top covered with blood.

A young woman slaps a mentally-sick man in the face repeatedly, he screams and cries.





We see a teen standing on a stump at the edge of the woods to which his back is turned (at night). It's a test of his bravery (other boys watch him), but when eerie sounds come from the woods, all of them run back into the village.

When one of the monsters spots the girl, it barks at her and they stare at each other about 10 feet apart, the scene is quiet and suddenly the monster springs into action chasing the girl. It is frightening because the attack is sudden and without warning.

Several pop-ups of the monsters can be rather frightening.

Also, a lot of the film is very suspenseful.
