Violence & Gore

  • As the movie's plot-line, Injun Joe, an Indian in the Mississippi, is implied to have killed someone. We see him, along with two other men, lower a corpse, then leave a possession of Muff Potter's by it. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are watching behind some bushes. Evidently, an outbreak ensures as Joe attacks the first man, but kills the second by driving a knife through his chest. A squelch is heard, as he slumps dead, with no blood. Eventually, the townspeople discover the murder, and that the knife used belonged to Muff Potter, to convince the people that he did it. They all try to lynch him, but the judge orders a fair trial to be held at the local courthouse.
  • At the trial, Tom Sawyer leaks information about the murder. Eventually, when he is asked who the real murderer is, Injun Joe tries to murder Tom Sawyer by throwing his knife while he is sitting in a chair, however, Tom dodges and we see the knife protrude the other side of the chair. Injun Joe then escapes by jumping through glass. He shoots some people, with no bloody results, as they slump over and he escapes.
  • While Tom is being cornered by Injun Joe, Huckleberry Finn slings a rock that knocks out Injun Joe, as they leave. With them being celebrated, they go back to ensure Injun Joe's survival. We find out he was killed by Finn's aim, and is seen partially beginning decomposition. Will scare younger individuals.
