MPAA Rated R for language and some gruesome creature violence

Sex & Nudity

  • One scene where they go skinny dipping and he is shown stripping down. His naked butt is shown in closeup for a few seconds and then again in flashes as they are walking to the swimming hole. There is then a far shot and they are both seen frontally naked, but at an angle where nothing discernible can be made out.

Violence & Gore

  • While the violence is for a short duration but it is quite graphic and people with weak stomachs can't handle it but people okay with horror films will find it alright.
  • A man hits his foot and later in the film it is shown covered with blood.
  • A decaying corpse of a deer is seen with flies over it.
  • A man cleans fishes by ripping them off and then cooks them.
  • A woman's legs are broken and she hits a big rock.


  • Alot of f@#$ words

  • A couple drink beer,wine etc during their trip.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • While the first half is suspenseful,the second half is quite intense and scary.
  • A couple gets into a heated argument.
  • The thought of getting lost in the middle of nowhere could frighten some.
  • This is an intense film which is done very realistically and could be intense for weak hearts.
