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.

- A woman performs a lap dance for a man, the scene lasts for about a minute but is never very nudity

- We see a woman walking around in her underwear, we see a close up of her butt and then she slips into a T-shirt as she walks towards the rest room. (this happens on the beginning of the film).

- Several sexual references throughout the film, none very explicit.

Death Proof doesn't contain many scenes of violence, but the few violent scenes are VERY graphic, even though darkly-comic.

- A woman is violently bumped around inside the killer's car. She hits the glass and the interior of the car, we see her with a bloody hand and some blood on the glass. She later gets her face smashed against the dashboard of a car, we see a brief glimpse of the scene, and hear a loud crunch as she persumely hit her face/nose/teeth on the dashboard. After that, we see her as she gasps for breath and then quickly dies (thick blood is covering her and the her clothes, as will as the dashboard).

- A man crashes his car into another car full of young women. We see a woman getting thrown out of a car and landing on the road. Another woman's leg gets severed in the impact, flies from her body, and splashes onto the road (very graphic). A woman's face is struck with a moving wheel, her face tears off (we briefly see a bloody pulp where her face used to be). This is the goriest scene in the movie.

- A woman shoots a man in the arm.

- A group of women pull a man out of his car, and then punch him repeatedly until he falls to the ground. A woman kicks him in the face and he is supposed to be dead, it is shown but not in close-up.

- A very long sequence of car chase, involving a person on top of the car. They are constantly threatened with being thrown off the car, moving at 100-miles-per-hour.

This movie has strong language.

141 uses of "fuck", at least 60 uses of "ass" and "bitch", 23 uses of "shit", and about 10 or so uses of the N word

For the first half of the movie, many scenes are set in a bar, and numerous men and women constantly drink, smoke cigarettes, and smoke pot.

Alcohol is often referred to in conversations as well.

While the movie is quite violent, there's a darkly comic tone to it similar to Tarantino's other works. The first half of it, though graphic, is in some ways, over-the-top. However, the second half near the end is played in a very edgy and disorienting style, which while not terribly intense, may be discomfiting for some viewers.
