MPAA Rated R for strong violence, sexuality, drug use and language

Sex & Nudity

  • Around 15 minutes in there is porn playing in the background, it can be seen clearly. This scene cuts in and out for a couple of seconds.
  • 7/10
  • A man and a woman have sex in one brief scene. Male buttocks are shown for a second. Not very bad at all. Also it only lasts a couple of seconds as well
  • A naked man chases a woman with a chainsaw. Buttocks shown for a few seconds.

Violence & Gore

  • 9/10
  • Very graphic and disturbing violence is depicted throughout.
  • A man is killed with an axe. Instead of seeing an axe enter his head, there is his reaction before he is killed, a blood spray on the killer's face, and his face in a pool of blood from a distance. When his covered body is being dragged out, it leaves a bloody trail.
  • A chainsaw is dropped on a woman from a great height. The impact is offscreen and no sounds are heard, although we see the chainsaw lodged in her back and blood pooling on the floor from a distance.
  • A few bodies of women are briefly shown in a closet, and a bloody corpse is partially seen in a bathroom for a second.
  • One woman is briefly seen with a slightly bloodied face after an implied act of violence.
  • A man is bloodlessly stabbed a few times around the upperbody.
  • A dog is swiftly stepped on and killed but this is partially obscured by a trash pile.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 2 or 3 uses of cocaine. Some brief talk about using other drugs including steroids. One character appears to be under the influence of depressants.
  • Some characters smoke and drink.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene where a woman sees a man eating another woman will disturb viewers, and it is shown suddenly which may even startle some.
  • The film is both philosophical and thought-provoking. Elements of satire and black comedy are sprinkled throughout, and works its way into controversial and philosophical themes. The material, however, is only intended for a mature audience.
  • MPAA/USA - Rated R for strong violence, sexuality, drug use and language.
  • BBFC/UK - Rated 18 (strong violence, sex).
