Sex & Nudity

  • Two sex scenes
  • 2 characters have sex. The lady grinds and you see one breast in closeup while the woman's hand is over the other.
  • Later 2 characters make out, fondle each other and preparing to have sex. A pair of breasts are focused on and fill the screen for roughly 5 seconds. The couple is interrupted before the deed is done.

Violence & Gore

  • A man is stabbed.
  • An arm is bitten blood flows from the wound
  • A man has his head literally drilled into by a lethal flying sphere. (Rather fake) looking blood flies and gushes out of the sphere, squirting everywhere - almost comedic nowadays but is also played for laughs
  • A teenager is manhandled by a man with unnatural strength.
  • A rather fake looking large fly attacks a boy but still manages to be an effective scene
  • A boy cuts off a mans fingers which ooze yellow blood. (rubbery looking)
  • A car crash
  • A boy blows a hole in his bedroom door.
  • A dwarf is impaled by a branch, yellow blood is seen oozing out of it's mouth

Profanity

  • Occasional light swear words 'bastard' 'son of a bitch'. At least 1 "fuck" and "shit". Reference to a "retarded kid"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man drinks beer at a bar
  • A boy takes a gulp of beer

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • RATED R for violence, nudity, and for some language
  • A teenager is terrified when he cannot remove his hand from a box. The idea of the death of a loved one, and the theme of death and funeral homes may be disturbing to some.
  • The movie is both played for laughs and scares
  • The Tall Man is very menacing and will no doubt creep out or even scare viewers
  • Although dated, the movie is very intense and graphic in some scenes. The violence looks fake but it makes for some memorable scenes that linger in you mind for a very long time.
  • Many intense scenes such as a car chase, two (intense and creepy) chase scenes between a boy and The Tall Man
  • The ending scene is very surprising and may scare viewers
