MPAA Rated PG-13 for violence, terror, thematic content involving sexual assault, language, sexual material and drinking

Sex & Nudity

  • A guy takes his shirt, lays with a girl, takes his belt off and reaches for a condom. No nudity and they were interrupted

Violence & Gore

  • Just as violent as Halloween (1978) and the original Black Christmas (1974), which weren't very violent. Also, with its PG-13 rating, little could be shown onscreen.
  • TW: Main plot revolves around s.a. Please consider this before watching


  • One use of fuck. Some uses of shit. Milder language including damn, etc. Please Note: this comment has been edited. Originally it claimed words like "s-t" were used. This is not a word. To be useful as a Parents' Guide, parents need to know what is in the film, not what you think they are capable of hearing. If the language harmed you; don't come to the parents' guide. If it didn't, don't assume other parents can't handle it.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A few scenes where characters are seen drinking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • As this is a slasher film, there are frequent scenes of suspense that some may find frightening - that said, there is very little blood.
  • The masked & hooded killer may be frightening & often pops up unexpectedly with loud musical stings.
  • TW: Main plot revolves around s.a. Please consider this before watching
