James Franco is very artsy in this movie so there are sculptures and paintings around his house with some nudity.

Some crude humor

If your teens have seen movies like 21 jump street, Superbad, or Pineapple Express this should be fine

Most in a funny or comical fashion

A machine falls on top of a cashier, killing her instantly.

A massive earthquake then opens up the ground near a mansion where a large party is taking place, creating a portal to what is presumably hell. Dozens of party goers walk outside and are sucked into the crater. One person grabs onto the foot of someone who is on land, and the man then kicks him down. A bloody, severed leg is visible. A woman's head is accidentally crushed by a fleeing party goer, with blood briefly shown spurting.

Another person is impaled by a lamp-post, with massive amounts of blood spurting from his chest as he expresses bewilderment. Very graphic and gory.

A man is raped by a demon (off-screen) and becomes possessed, attacking his friends with his new found supernatural strength before being subdued and tied to a bed. A man attempts to perform an exorcism on him, the demonic spirit mocks the exorcist but he begins convulsing eventually. He is ultimately burned to death after a fallen candle triggers a massive fire within a mansion.

A man attempting to break into a house is beheaded by a demon, his head falls through a hole in the barricade and the resultant bloody mess causes the occupants to unintentionally kick his around like a soccer ball. Very graphic and gory.

A massively endowed demon about as tall as a skyscraper has his penis severed by a beam of blue light. Magma spills from his body.

A man is eaten alive by the gang of cannibals. Blood is seen spurting in the distance and his severed nose is briefly seen.

A man is struck in the nose by an axe handle due to a misunderstanding.

A discussion is mistaken to be a discussion about possibly raping a female character, and the female character threatens the others with an axe.

Fuck is heard a 30+ times Shit is said about 50 times. Uses of body terms such as ass(hole) dick, cock, insults using words like bitch and bastard. Many religious profanities too like Holy shit, Jesus, goddamn, damn, hell, Christ, which could be offensive to some religious people

Seth and Jay hang out together and smoke a large amount of marijuana. Seth even spells Jay's name out in joints.

Party goers are seen smoking pot and in a long shot a woman can be seen lighting a pipe.

Shrooms, marijuana, cocaine, and ecstasy are among the rations for the house.

The group gets high on ecstasy and has duels with lamp stands.

Michael Cera, who is always high on cocaine in his scenes, snorts a large amount of cocaine off a table in James Franco's house. He also blows a handful of the drug into the face of another man, who freaks out, having never taken coke before.

Jay Baruchel unknowingly drinks a full can of ecstasy.

Regular tobacco smoking is prevalent and at one point Jay leaves the party to buy smokes.

In Heaven, Craig explains that marijuana is smoked liberally, and we see several characters there with joints.

Numerous scenes depicting the remnants of an apocalyptic wasteland. The outside world is shown engulfed in flames, and during the first half of the film, the sounds of screams and heavy gunfire are heard in the background.

The demons in the film could be unsettling or scary to some.

Some scenes have jump-scares.

Rated R for crude and sexual content throughout, brief graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence
