Sex & Nudity

  • A group of adolscent males in a locker room are shown getting changed. Their shirts are are long enough to where they cover their genitals, but it is obvious that most of them are nude in their lower half. Some shots of buttocks are flashed briefly, but casually and not intentionally.
  • The main character walks in on his mother urinating, but no nudity is seen. It is meant to be humorous considering that the main character himself is filming her as she does it. When se\he notices him, she shuts the door on him, ending the scene.

Violence & Gore

  • An actual animal is killed and viewed quite a number of times by the main character. The animal, a pig, is shown having a captive bolt gun placed to its head and it falls instantly once it is shot through the head. Minimal blood is shown in this part, but it can still be very disturbing to some people. The only blood is a small amount seeping out of the pig's mouth as it is dragged away.
  • There is a brief clip from "The Toxic Avenger" shown in which a man driving a car is hit by a mutant until he drives his car off of a cliff. No explicit violence is evident in this clip.
  • The main character punches his friend in the stomach at school and he falls over in pain.


    • There is one use of "asshole."
    • There is one use of "bastard."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The main character casually smokes throughout the film. He and a friend both smoke a cigarette at a sleep over.
  • While singing, a boys choir pass money to another and deal drugs, out of the sight of the supervisors.

Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • After the main character murders a girl (see violence & gore section for details), he touches the girl's blouse and lifts it up slightly, but not where we can see her underwear or genitals. He quickly puts her blouse back down.
  • The main character undresses himself and walks around his house naked. In along shot, he is shown sitting in a chair naked, talking on the phone with his friend. However, his legs are crossed over his genitals, so no explicit nudity is seen. He spies a bit of blood from the girl he murdered on his side. He is later shown rubbing it all over his bare chest, abdomen, and nipples and films himself while doing so. In the small segment, the top of his pubic hair is seen for a split second. He watches the video again later. In addition, he watches a video of himself cleaning his room naked. We see some graphic nudity of his penis (from a distance), but mostly just of his bare buttocks and side.

Violence & Gore

  • The main character murders a girl with the captive bolt gun mentioned above (the same one used in the video where the pig is stunned before being slaughtered). He shoots her once (out of the camera's view, but it is very loud) and she falls down. She crawls away, yelling in pain, and he shoots her again (offscreen). She continues to yell in extreme pain, until he shoots her one last time, then she falls silent. We see the boy moving the girl away from where he had killed her. There is LOTS of blood trailing behind her body as the main character drags her, face down, away from the room. Eventually, he flips her over, face up, and we see her face and hair drenched in blood. There is no gore present here (no brains or viscera exposed), just a disturbingly large amount of blood. The main character is shown shortly after rubbing some of her blood across his own bare chest and films himself as he does it.
  • The aforementioned murder of a girl by the main character was captured on tape by the boy and is shown to the boy's parents by the boy himself. It is mostly heard rather than seen, but it is still disturbing all over again.
  • The parents of the main character discuss how they should dispose of the body of the girl their son (the main character) killed. They discuss dismembering the body and chopping it up so no one can find it and it will be easy to dispose of. They are never seen doing this, but it is silently implied that it had been done, because the body is never seen again for the rest of the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In an extended scene a boy shoots and reloads and shoots and reloads and shoots a girl with a compression gun (this weapon is usually used to slaughter pigs).
