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

Sex & Nudity

  • Two men investigate screaming emanating from a basement window and the homeowner comes out and invites them in to what turns out to be a loud orgy: we see over 50 people in the basement almost entirely nude (we see many bare breasts, bare chests and bare legs of both genders), a nude woman faces the camera, sitting astride a man and bouncing up and down while having sex (we do not see genitals), a nude man has sex from behind with a woman while both face the camera (genitals are not visible), and several female couples kiss in close-up; three men masturbate with their groin areas hidden by a waist-high shelving unit and they then masturbate one another below screen, a man says that he'd like an Asian housewife to perform oral sex on him and a woman approaches him, asks him if he would like that and kneels below screen (presumably to do so) and we see a dozen glowing lighted vibrators of different colors on a coffee table.

Violence & Gore

  • Aliens are killed by severe trauma to the penis since that is where their brains are
