Sex & Nudity

  • A woman is shown in her underwear for nearly half of the movie.
  • Two men talk about how a woman has no "jelly rolls" right in front of her, her husband and her young child.
  • Brief talk of a man having sexual relations with his mother. This is said to be a lie.
  • A woman is forced to completely strip, again, in front of her husband and son (his face is covered with a pillow cover). We don't see anything.

Violence & Gore

  • The violence in this film is on the PG-13 level, being mild to moderate in impact. No gore, and just a little bit of blood to sum the film up. The film is just more psychologically intense and draining. The thematic content is the disturbing aspect of this film.
  • A young man is talking disrespectfully to the owner of the house they're in, so the man slaps them. The young man then breaks the mans leg with a gold club. The man's pant leg gets soaked with blood over the course of the movie, and he is seen in frequent pain for the rest of the movie. At one point a young man stomps on his leg, causing the man to scream in pain.
  • A man and woman are frequently shoved and pushed, and tied/taped up throughout the movie.
  • A girls legs are seen, surrounded by blood. A shotgun lays down the hall from her, presumably being the weapon that killed her.
  • A man is stabbed with a kitchen knife off screen.
  • A woman is forced to pray to God, in order to decide how and in which order her and her husband will die.

Profanity

  • 5 uses of fuck, 10 uses of shit and it's derivatives. 1 use of asshole.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One character smokes a cigarette. There is some talk about substance abuse.
  • A young man says him and his accomplice serious drug addicts, the other young man says he's lying.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • One of the central themes is home invasion. Most of the movie makes one question their own morals when it comes to watching violence for entertainment. Could potentially traumatize viewers, especially younger audiences.
  • Many intense and frightening scenes throughout the movie.
  • The film revolves around a home invasion resulting in intense psychological and physical torture, involving children. The perpetrators are very calm and collected and insist on playing their own made up 'games' with the victims.
  • It is obvious that their mental and physical torture is very fun to them.

Spoilers

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

Violence & Gore

  • A young man borrows a golf club to test it, it is then later revealed that he used it to murder a dog. This happens off screen but the dog can be heard barking and whining as it is killed. A woman finds the dogs body after playing a game of 'hot and cold'. The dogs lifeless body slumps out of the car onto the ground.
  • A young boy is shot off screen in front of his parents. His lifeless body is seen, a very significant amount of blood is shown splattered on the walls, ground and television. His wounds are never shown. His mother pukes while looking at his body, and his father later covers him with a sheet, the sheet quickly becoming soaked with blood.
  • A woman grabs a shotgun and shoots a young man in the stomach. There is a brief shot of the young man flying against the wall with his wound spraying blood around him. This is then shown very quickly in reverse, and is undone.
  • A man is shot point blank, off screen with a shotgun.
  • A woman is bound by her hands and feet and has her mouth taped. She is then thrown into a lake to drown.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The end of the film features a long shot that lingers on the Woman's reaction to the home invasion that just occurred. The shot lasts for a good while and is extremely hard to watch.
  • The ending is very dark and depressing, and implies this is at least the second of three times the perpetrators will have done this.
