The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Two guys are shown in fist-fights/wrestling a couple of times.

A man is found dead (committed suicide). We see his wrists slit and a lot of blood on the floor.

A woman is stabbed in the back by a buzzing scalpel (unseen, camera was on her face). The wound is not shown, just some blood on her clothing and hands.

A man is slashed across the stomach with a buzzing scalpel and it bleeds, the wound is not shown clearly, but his clothing and hands show blood.

A man has his legs crushed and it bleeds under water/liquid. This scene is fairly painful to watch.

A man with heavy burns has the skin torn off his arm, exposing muscles and tendons.

A man with severe burns on his body is the main villain

There are a few gory kills, but the violence is not very often and is almost solely in the third act.


11 F-words. A few Hells and Damns, pretty standard if not relatively light language for an R-Rated horror movie


Several people are shown dying by being burnt by the sun, one freezes and one suffocates/freezes in space. Another is murdered and there is a suicide. There are also fires and explosions, and a scary mad man. All scenes showing the mad man are blurry/disorienting and fairly disturbing.

The various deaths are pretty intense and some are frightening

The film is extremely tense throughout this is why the BBFC in the UK said it contained "strong horror"

Note: In Australia the MA rating is due to the short video in the special features called Dad's Dead. Sunshine (the main feature) is actually rated M.
