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

Violence & Gore

  • Red is stabbed by an object, not graphic.
  • A scene near the end shows several of the "tethered" people eating rabbits. There is a lot of blood on the faces of the people and you can hear rabbits squealing.
  • One of the families are killed by there tethered selves, (shown from a far distance) until the family comes and helps them, there is blood shown, and the mom is shown crawling away and then has her throat slit offscreen

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Two teenagers are killed. We see some minor blood on the wall but we do not see the bodies.
  • This film has a theme of duality and inequality as human beings in America and makes us think about who we really are. The ending is extremely twisted and has you asking so many questions about whose side you were rooting for when the film started.
  • The twist is very shocking the real addie is the tethered one her tethered counterpart actually chocked her that's why her real one has a rashly voice and her fake one can't snap well
