MPAA Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence

Sex & Nudity

  • No sex scenes. Nudity: a naked man, covering his privates while bend over on the ground, you see him from his side.
  • Just some kissing between engaged and married couples. Man cups his genitals while he comments in Spanish to a man next to him in a nonsexual context.
  • A man is stripped when being examined by aliens, but we only see his clothes being torn off. However, after being dropped off by the aliens, the same man is found naked (we mostly seen him in the fetal position).

Violence & Gore

  • A couple of fist fights, no blood is drawn.
  • One character threatens another with a buzzsaw while cutting trees.
  • Some scenes in which the aliens are examining the lead character are violent and disturbing: he is chased, captured, and then subjected to a variety of experiments with needles and clamps (he actually takes a needle in the eye - a hard scene to watch). He begins screaming even before they hurt him, because apparently the sheet they put over him begins attaching itself painfully to his skin. He's scared and confused from the beginning of the scene to the end.


  • God's name in vain.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People are often seen smoking and drinking in some scenes.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The cocoon scene is rather intense and may be frightening to some.
  • This realistic portrayal of abduction by aliens may be very disturbing for small children.
  • The overall atmosphere of the movie may frighten some.
  • There are several rather frightening pop-up scenes.
  • The aliens push a man against a table and proceed to abuse him with instruments. As a result, he is severely traumatized after they let him go and has frightening flashbacks and PTSD.
  • The movie rather intense, not extremely frightening or shocking (+15)
