  • Two prostitutes dance provocatively and let the villain and his friend fondle their breasts. It is implied they have sex with their clients.

Violence & Gore

  • 10/10
  • Very strong realistic torture and humiliation of women (some sexual) and men in the film.
  • -A mutilated girl who is tied to a chair has her nipple cut off(off screen). She is degraded. She has fecal matter smeared into her open breast-wound, crotch, and mouth. She has piss dumped on her. She is forced to cannibalize the toe of her dead boyfriend. She later is found dead from starvation.
  • -A girl is sexually molested and then beaten to death while performing oral sex.

  • -A woman is smashed in the skull with a clawhammer over and over while being anally raped.


  • 10/10
  • The main characters, two men in their 20s, cuss frequently. "Fuck," in particular, is used the most usually as an expletive but sometimes in a sexual context. Terms such as "shit", "ass", and the c-word are used as well.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 7/10
  • Several scenes of smoking and drinking in August Underground. Some scenes of the main character and some prostitutes smoking marijuana.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 10/10
  • Strong torture and violence throughout.
  • An idea of how accurate the TECE (below) is: 5-10 is little-kid suitable, G-Rated type of film (i.e. Care Bears, Sleeping Beauty); 10-15 is going to be a little harsher, but not by much (i.e. The Incredibles); 15-20 could be pretty high up there (i.e. Indiana Jones), 20-25 can be less kid-suitable(i.e. The Dark Knight); 25-30 is going to be a film most likely not suitable for children; 30-40 is going to be a film meant for adults and NOT for children (i.e. Saving Private Ryan), and films that go over 40 are high in explicit content and only for mature audiences.(i.e. A Clockwork Orange)
  • Total Explicent Content Estimation: 47/50
  • Suggested MPAA rating: NC-17 for extreme graphic sexual violence including perverse and disturbing imagery
