MPAA Rated R for strong bloody violence, a scene of violent sexual content, language and some graphic nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • Not as violent as most Tarantino movies. Not as much foul language, either. There is some male nudity, and sexual references, but nothing over the top.
  • One of the characters explains how he forced another man to walk nude in the snow. Full frontal nudity is seen from a distance, and again when he's crawling through the snow. In both shots, his penis is clearly visible. A profile of his naked body is also seen - revealing a side view of his nude buttocks.
  • It is said a man forces another man to give him oral sex in exchange for a blanket. This is seen from a distance but the act itself is not shown. It looks more like someone crouched in front of another man with no nudity shown. This scene lasts only a few seconds and it's later implied that this never happened.
  • Slang words for genitals are used occasionally.

Violence & Gore

  • As one would expect from a Tarantino film, there is some quite graphic violence, but it is not as brutal compared to his other films.
  • A woman is seen being punched in the face, elbowed in the face and kicked.
  • Two men ingest poison and vomit lots of blood; this lasts for about a full minute. This is extremely exaggerated.
  • Shots are fired with blood spurting out graphically. These shots are exaggerated and almost always done for comedic effect. They are never realistic.
  • A man is shot in his groin (the impact is not seen) all we see is blood on the floor and the man screaming in pain. Later he is seen laying on a bed holding his genitals.
  • A man's head is blown off with guns, graphic but cartoonish, done for comedic effect.
  • Right before the intermission, a man is shot in the back as he tries to leave, however, the gunshot is only heard and no impact wound is seen.
  • A man is shot after a heated situation, blood spurts out
  • Four men enter into a haberdashery and shoot everyone in it. A woman is shot graphically in the face point blank (cartoonish blood spurts), a man gets shot in the chest, two women get shot with graphic results, a man is stabbed in his back repeatedly till he is dead (the shot is someone obscured as the action is quick and we do not see the stabbing close up) and a man gets shot in the face, happens off screen but blood splatters all over the snow on the floor.
  • A man is shot in the back of his head and his brain matter and blood are splattered on the face of a woman.
  • A woman hacks off the arm of a dead man - to whom she is chained - to free herself.
  • Most of the violence in the movie is exaggerated, gunshots cause explosions of blood and heads explode in cartoonish ways. The violence is not realistic at all and is mostly done for comedic effect but still somewhat gory-*


  • About 15 uses of "fuck", "shit" is said 16 times. "ass", "bitch", "son of a bitch", "whore", "damn", "goddamn", "hell", "bastard", "nuts", and "Jesus Christ", plus several words for penis: "pecker", "johnson", "dingus", "dick", are all used.
  • Constant strong language, including racial slurs and constant reference to race and racial bias, violence, etc. Examples of such language include: nigger, darkie and cracker.
  • Far less language than Django, Pulp Fiction

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Pipe smoking throughout.
  • A character rolls tobacco into a cigar.
  • Drinking in a few scenes.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film constantly has an air of intensity around it and is made to feel very claustrophobic.


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

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The story about a man's son being tortured and orally raped is told in a very graphic manner with no details left out, the tension builds in that scene until the man's father, (who is hearing the story from another man) is shot dead. a very intense scene.
