Violence & Gore

  • Venom bites a head off, with a very brief spurt of blood.
  • Has several severe depictions of gore. Heads to being eaten off, in graphic detail (they are either usually very brief or some can be offscreen).
  • Carnage uses two of his tendrils to brutally impale two prison guards. He is also shown killing guards by throwing them around, biting their heads off, and brutally impaling a guard with his tongue. Very little blood shown, but still pretty intense
  • In the supernatural context, carnage can create large holes in his bodies which is graphic.
  • Carnage is saying "I'm a killer." many times.
  • While driving in a newly stolen car Cletus talks to Carnage in the rear view mirror, and they make a deal to help each other. Carnage then extends tentacles from Cletus and picks up a truck in the lane beside him and throws it off the bridge out of the way. A man and woman scream

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 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. (Personal opinion deleted.)
  • 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 unsettling voice echoing while a lighting bolt shows in the background. Small strips of Carnage's skin point upwards when saying this, as we get a close up of his face.
