Violence & Gore

  • An animated flashback sequence shows a child pushing his grandmother down the stairs as well as killing his mother in a bathtub with a hair dryer and his dog with a drill
  • When Venom and Carnage have a fight in the church carnage bites off the priest's head, although there is no blood.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A prisoner tells a woman to eat snacks all day
  • There is one point in time in the movie where Cletus Kasady Writes a letter to Eddie Brock and he writes about his story about pushing his grandma down the stairs and throwing the hairdryer into a bathtub where his mother is, then whirrs a drill close to a small dog. It's implied the dog is killed by him, but is not shown; lets out a little whimper.
  • There's one scene where Carnage cuts Venom's leg, stabs his shoulder then rams into him launching him into a glass clock. He screams "Let there be CARNAGE!" in a loud booming voice echoing while a lighting bolt strikes in the background. Small strips of Carnage's skin point upwards when saying this, as we get a close up of his face.
  • The scene where Carnage eats his last meal before execution is sad, however the execution scene itself is very frightening and intense. From this scene on the movie becomes extremely dark.
  • Frances' scream occurs multiple times in the movie and it can be quite frightning.
  • The first appearance of Carnage is very frightening. His shadow is scene behind some fog, he then let's out a roar that is extremely loud. This scene was super loud and scarier in theaters.
