Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Though this film is very, VERY light on violence, the atmosphere is brimming with tension and threat throughout.

  • The appearance of the alien creatures may look pretty silly by today's standards but they are hideous and cruel and will probably frighten younger viewers.
  • The protagonist's synthetic face begins bubbling and melting off painfully. He manages to tear it free with the help of a waterfall. This scene is slightly disturbing.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Several of the aliens may frighten younger viewers. A child alien is seen. It's back legs snap backwards and starts to hop like a grasshopper. At the end, it is suggested that very few people are not aliens, and that those that aren't, will be watching the aliens from now on. It isn't a frightening scene, but the idea of it may frighten younger viewers.
