Sex in an airplane bathroom (bare breasts), graphic sex scene.

Bare breast are seen (attack scene). A woman's thong underwear is visible.

A man is bitten by a snake, on his lower region (implied).

Sexual references are made.

Intense, but fairly moderate violence with many people being bitten by snakes. Gore content isn't high because the snakes don't gore people, but just bite them by stinging them, making the victims look very red and swollen. Blood/gore scenes are only when people fall down/impale on stuff (happens twice) which we see bloody results.

A snake slithers toward a man (he tries to smack it with papers), a woman vomits into a bag and she is bitten on the tongue by a snake (we see the snake hanging on and then see her with a swollen tongue and foaming at the mouth), oxygen masks fall from hatches and many snakes fall out, also landing on passengers, a woman is bitten in the eye, a man falls on the floor and is bitten on the arm and chest, a man is thrown against an overhead compartment (we hear a crunch).

A man is wrapped around the chest by an enormous snake (we see blood trickle from the man's nose as the snake squeezes) and then the snake wraps it's mouth around the man's head and begins to swallow him.

A man urinates in a toilet (we see the stream), a snake lunges at and bites his penis, the man thrashes around the bathroom, hits his head on the mirror breaking it, crashes against the wall, and blood smears behind him and as he slides down the wall and dies.

A man is pushed to the floor of an airplane aisle, people step on him as they run from approaching snakes, and one woman steps on his head and her shoe heel punctures his temple and breaks off (we see blood and the man writhes). People fall from a flight of stairs when the railing breaks and one person is impaled through the chest and another in the neck (we see blood).

A man and a woman are knocked down and pinned by a food cart, and they are bitten repeatedly by many snakes (we hear them yelling and see them die).

18 F-words and its derivatives, 13 sexual references, 17 scatological terms, 11 anatomical terms, 15 mild obscenities, 5 religious profanities, 12 religious exclamations.

Name-calling (punk.)

A man and a woman smoke a marijuana cigarette.

A woman drinks alcohol from a flask and a man orders a gin and tonic.

A young man drinks Red Bull.

A man offers a woman a Xanax for her dog, which is afraid of flying.

People who have phobias of snakes will find this film frightening.

However, the overall feel of this film is suspense, excitement and adrenaline, rather than full blown horror that we see in other creature features.

We see many, many dead bodies with discolored and swollen skin and features.

A snake slithers out of a dead man's mouth.

Suggested MPAA Rating: R for sexual content, language, drug content, disturbing images and violence/terror.

Rated R for language, a scene of sexuality and drug use, and intense sequences of terror and violence
