Sex & Nudity

No nudity. Two passionate kisses.

Violence & Gore

Rather a lot, including a gruesome decapitation. Lots of battle related scenes and some scenes of menace related to the alien creature.

-Red "tentacles" of the Alien shoot through walls, ripping into people, and splattering bits of blood as the people get pulled out of view.

-A couple people are stabbed in a fighting scene. Blood is shown when they are stabbed. -A man is stabbed in the neck, blood sprays from the wound. It is graphic, and may be disturbing to many. -A man's head is chopped off, and blood curls and sprays from where the head used to be.

-A girl wakes up in a cave. There are bodies of dead people all around her. Most are missing body parts. It is rather graphic and may be frightening and disturbing for some. -A skull, still with flesh on it is seen for a couple of seconds. The head has blood, and it has been clawed through. It is quite graphic, and may also be frightening/disturbing.

The Alien is trapped in a pit that is lit on fire. It emerges, on fire, and starts attacking people. Some are ripped apart. Some blood is shown. -A little Alien attacks a man, tackling him and starts to bite him. No blood is seen.

-Possibly one of the most disturbing parts of the movie is where a man is captured by a smaller alien. The man is seen from a distance laying on dead bodies while the alien rips at his insides. The man moans and groans in pain, clearly not dead. This is seen from a distance, but it is bloody, and arguably one of the most graphic and disturbing parts of the movie.

-The alien tries to kill a girl, who kicks it back. It drops saliva and blood from it's teeth on her, but is interrupted. She is then buried under a pile of dead bodies by the alien's tail.

Profanity

Very little profanity, despite the violence level. One use of "Son of a B*tch" two uses of "d*mn" (one hardly audible) two uses of "h*ll" one use of "bast*rd" and one use of the "F" word 6 minutes in.

Drinking scenes.

There is a big party that the villagers have, and many men get drunk.

- A man wakes up staring at the alien. It is a bit hard to see, but the alien is eating another person. Then the alien attacks the man. It is about 15 seconds long, but it is very frightening and disturbing.

-The alien is seen ontop of a wall. A close-up of it opening it's jaws is seen. Saliva, and bits of blood on it's teeth is seen.

The alien is rather frightening overall. You see a lot of it.

-There is long period of time (15 minutes or so) where they are in a cave. There are lots of dead bodies in this cave (fair amount of blood is seen on some.) This may be frightening to some.

The alien catches fire in one scene and is rather frightening.

The last 20 minutes or so of the movie is very intense and frightening.

Overall, the movie is very violent in spots, there is a lot of blood and there are a couple of very intense and frightening scenes.
