Violence & Gore

  • There are quite a few frightening scenes, nothing too bad.
  • Boo is strapped into a chair and a "scream extraction" machine approaches her face while she screams and wriggles.
  • A boy is shown falling asleep in a darkened room, the closet door creaks and opens and the boy imagines that a shirt is a monster; then a pair of large eyes open under his bed and a big-toothed monster comes out causing the boy to scream, which then causes the monster to scream and fall back onto on the floor (see violence/gore), it is then revealed to be just a simulation.
  • Sully does a really big, scary growl for a demonstration and frightens Boo who runs away in tears (we see images of his face later, with teeth and claws bared).
  • Sully thinks Boo has been smashed in a compactor and he faints from despair.
  • Monsters prepare to go scaring; they put on their sharp teeth, test their claws, growl, put on more eyes and then go through doors, and we hear children screaming.
  • The idea of monsters may scare very young viewers.
