MPAA Rated PG-13 for violence/terror, crude sexual content, language, some drug material and partial nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • Tree walks through her campus completely nude (we only see her bare shoulders, back, and an upper shot of her bare butt).
  • It is inferred that a young adult is gay and in denial about his sexuality. A young woman spies on him in his dorm through the window, he's holding a laptop with a tissue box, he is about masturbate to porn when he is interrupted by his roommate, and he turns the laptop screen away to the window to show a gay porn, with two men kissing passionately.
  • There are a few jokes of a sexual nature.
  • A girl changes her shirt in front of a guy. We see her cleavage in a black bra.
  • You can see a sexdoll in a guys room
  • Tree is shown engaging in foreplay with her teacher, but they are interrupted by the teacher's wife knocking on the door, and it is said that Tree has an affair with that teacher.
  • Tree talks to a guy that was on a date with and she makes a reference to his penis size.
  • Tree has no pants on in bed just underwear (no nudity shown)
  • It is implied that a teacher is having an affair with one of his students. In one scene, they are in an office together with the door locked and they start kissing passionately. Before they start to have sex or go further, his wife interrupts them.
  • A woman is seen in her bra and underwear.

Violence & Gore

  • A man is brutally ran over by a speeding vehicle on the road.
  • A woman is fatally shot with an unconcealed gun.
  • The body of a murdered man is found by a young woman.
  • Whenever Tree dies, the camera always cuts away just before impact of the weapon. The overall graphic intensity is very tame due to the film's PG-13 rating.
  • The killer stabs the protagonist several times in different versions of the day.
  • The protagonist is seen falling with a rope tied around her neck which leads to her death.
  • The protagonist is seen getting a bat hit at her head, she falls, and wakes up reliving the same day.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The protagonist takes Tylenol for a headache.

  • A few jump scares throughout.

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

Sex & Nudity

  • Ryan bursts into his dorm room and asks his room mate Carter, "Dude, did you hit that fine vagina or what?" Then he sees Tree staring at him angrily. She storms out.
  • Tree roams around the campus fully naked in public smiling and waving at everyone who sees her. Funny scene but doesn't count as "nudity." The camera only shows her from the neck up in front and her bare back from waist up with a hint of the top of her butt crack.

Violence & Gore

  • A young woman named Lori, who reveals herself to be the killer of Tree, is kicked off the window and falls to her death. We briefly see blood splashing everywhere as another young woman watches her corpse and screams in horror. We then see Lori's corpse lying to the ground, with a puddle of blood underneath her head. This is mostly done for a comedic effect, mostly considering that this film is a horror comedy.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Tree is seen holding a bong and is killed with it 5 minutes later

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • the main lady is chased by a serial killer at the end of the film. we later find out this was planted by the real killer to cover their back.
