MPAA Rated R for strong bloody violence, language throughout and some sexual references

Sex & Nudity

  • A man's pants are pulled down against his will and he's briefly shown in his underwear
  • No nudity - male or female.
  • "F**k" is used sexually a few times. A woman tells another woman to "shove it up your box" over the phone.
  • Mention of big boobs, dicks...

Violence & Gore

  • Bloody violence and action throughout. Some blood spurts and shooting, but the last act is quite violent.
  • A man is shot and killed by a large squad team outside.
  • At one point, Santa puts a grenade inside a man's armor, where he eventually explodes in a fiery sphere.
  • The villain shoots a security guard.
  • Two men are shot in rapid succession, with small blood spurts.
  • A man's eye is struck with a Christmas ornament.
  • A man falls victim to a booby-trapped ladder; he walks onto a loose step which breaks, and he slides down the ladder. As a result, he is impaled through the bottom of his chin with a nail. This is comic but accompanied by strong detail.
  • A man is stabbed with an icicle and blood is briefly shown.
  • A teen boy is struck in the face. The man who does it later decides who he wants to kill next. At one point, one of the antagonists mentions "bashing someone" with a nutcracker, but this never happens
  • A man's finger is broken via a nutcracker. His finger breaks (offscreen) and is later shown severely bruised. One of the antagonists mentions that nut crackers "aren't called finger crackers" and mentions putting the man's testicles in the nutcracker. They're interrupted before this happens, however.
  • A man is struck in the head with a nail. A bowling ball then falls on his head, driving the nail into his brain and killing him. Some blood shown but no brain or skull or anything like that.
  • A man falls out of the window onto a large upward facing icicle and is impaled through the torso. This happens offscreen.
  • A man is pulled into a snow blower, the shredding is offscreen but tons of blood is shown spewing out.
  • People are killed with a sledgehammer. These kills are often gory.
  • The deaths in this film are brutal.
  • Near the third act the film all of a sudden gets really brutal and gory. This includes people getting sliced and decapitated by ice skate, a man having a bunch of nails penetrate his back, chin and skull. Santa using a sharp candy cane to stab people, people being shoved into a woodchipper. Brutal fights, shootings, explosions etc. Some graphic gore near the end.
  • At the beginning of the film, Santa gets drunk and leans out of the sleigh and throws up, and it lands on the bartender. Gross but played for laughs.
  • Santa brutally kills a lot of soldiers with just some everyday tools in a shack


  • 72 uses of the f-word 45 uses of the s-word

Frightening & Intense Scenes


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

Sex & Nudity

  • While Scrooge and his posse interrogate Santa, Scrooge makes a reference to guys liking "big tits"

Violence & Gore

  • After killing the villain, Santa is then shot multiple times by a henchman. Not long after, a woman appears by the henchman and shoots him in the head.
  • After a big fight between Santa and the main villian Santa manages to shove him up a chimney with his powers. This crushes all his bones and pretty much destroys his entire body. As soon as Santa makes it to the top of the chimney a shower of blood is seen flying everywhere while Santa holds his headless and bloody mess of a body. He throws it to the ground where we get a quick close up of the aftermath.
  • One of the lovable characters is jarringly killed near the beginning of the film by being shot in the head with a silenced pistol. Blood splatters everywhere
  • A group of people are stabbed to death with two pairs of scissors. One is stabbed in the chest by both blades before one is pulled out and stabbed through another person's hand, with the same blade entering his chest as well, before the second pair of scissors stuck in the chest of the first person is pulled out and slashed across his stomach. The other two people are then stabbed in the back and in the neck off-screen, with blood seen.
  • A person gets stabbed in the face with a sharpened candy cane, which exits through their other cheek. Four other people are then stabbed in the neck with the same cane, one of them being stabbed in the stomach and being disemboweled.
  • A person gets stabbed in the throat near the collarbone with a sharp fireplace poker, killing them.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A man's ball are threatened to be crushed by a nutcracker, but is interrupted right before they crush them. Played for laughs, but is quite intense in the moment.
