- A young boy watches a man caressing a woman through a telescope. The woman's gown falls off her shoulder, revealing her breast. This is visible for a very short time and ends very quickly.

- A young girl undresses and climbs into bed with a young boy. You see the girl undressing at the background, no nudity is clearly shown, and the scene does not hold any underlying sexual connotations. Some may find this slightly disturbing, however, due to the fact that the young girl is a vampire and is actually almost 100 years old but she still has the emotional maturity of a 12 year old


- A young boy is thrown to the ground by 3 bullies, kicked and beaten. He is also given a wedgie so painful that he urinates as it happens.

- A man falls from a 10th storey window. The impact is not seen, only the aftermath.

-A young girl attacks a man twice her size, drinks his blood and snaps his neck. The attack is shown on camera, though is not overly graphic.

- A teenage boy is hung upside down from a tree while unconscious, but still alive. A knife is stabbed into his throat and blood pours into a container to be collected.

- A young boy cuts his thumb with a knife to make a pact with a girl. A close-up is seen, and blood is shown dripping from the wound.

- A man pours hydrochloric acid onto his face. Though we do not see the actual burning of his skin, we see the major disfiguration that it causes in a later scene.

- A woman in a hospital bursts into flames after being exposed to sunlight. A nurse in the room is also burned to death.

- A young boy hits another boy in the head with a metal pole, splitting his ear. A close-up of the wound is shown.

- An older man attacks young men on two occasions, though no overt violence is shown. The action is more implied.

- A young girl attacks a woman. A depiction of the bloody wound left to her throat is shown.

- A dead body encased in ice is lifted from a pond. No wounds are seen.

- A young girl begins to bleed heavily after entering a boy's home without being invited in. He quickly tells her to come in and hugs her.

-A young girl attacks an older man and drinks his blood, all in front of a younger boy. A violent and very bloody struggle is shown, and the boy is shown to be visibly distressed.

- Four young boys are attacked and violently ripped apart. The actual scene is not shown, but displaced and bloody body parts are seen on several occasions (including a violently decapitated head).

- A young boy's head is forced underwater with the intent of drowning him. This scene is very disturbing.

- A car skids and crashes, flipping several times. The crash is shown in graphic detail from within the car, though no major wounds or damage are seen happening to the occupants.


- There are several profanities, such as the 'f' word, the 's' word, and 'bitch' spoken sporadically throughout the film, but they are fairly rare.


- A man smokes a cigarette in several scenes, as do several teenage characters.

- A young boy's mother is shown drinking wine in front of him on several occasions. In several scenes it is implied that the mother is an alcoholic, and in one scene it is obvious that she has drunk herself to sleep. We only see empty wine glasses.


-There are many foreboding and intense scenes throughout the film, as well as sporadic moments of graphic violence.

- A young girl's facial features disfigure when she is exposed to blood. This could be viewed as very frightening.

- A woman's skin begins to burn up when exposed to sunlight. She then bursts into flames. This can be very frightening and intense.

- Themes of intense bullying to an adolescent boy are shown in great detail. Some may find these quite disturbing.

-The whole movie is very intense and depressing.

Rated R for strong bloody horror violence, language and a brief sexual situation
