MPAA Rated R for violence and bloody images.

Sex & Nudity

  • None at all. Absolutely none at all. Not even a kiss.

Violence & Gore

  • 15 children are accidentally killed in the beginning. Not graphic but we do see some of their bodies (no wounds).
  • A man is hung by a rope attached to a horse. He is lifted higher and higher until his neck breaks.
  • A teenage boy is hit with a metal bat, first in the leg and then in the face, killing him. A large bloody wound is shown on his face.
  • A man has his eyes removed with a farm tool. Very bloody/graphic scene. He is alive and screaming the entire time.
  • A man is unknowingly killed off screen. We later see his dead body strung up in a cornstalk. Then his eye bursts and more cornstalks shoot out of it.
  • A group of people are buried alive under dirt. We see them screaming, begging and trying to escape for an extended amount of time.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Father is drinking hard liquor, and Spoken References to growing weed and character pretending to light a cigarette

Frightening & Intense Scenes


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

Sex & Nudity

  • A very mild hinting at child molestation against a preacher.

Violence & Gore

  • Two teenage girls are unknowingly killed offscreen. We later see their dead bodies; one with an axe through their head and the other with large, open wounds. Both bloody.
