MPAA Rated R for strong violence, sexuality, drug use and language

Sex & Nudity

  • We see porn playing in the background; breasts and buttocks can be seen clearly. This scene cuts in and out for about a minute.
  • A man asks a woman to get on her knees so another woman can see her anus, he then tells her to eat it. There is a semi graphic threesome. A man thrusts into two women at the same time, they are on top of each other, bare breasts are seen. They are seen trying various sex positions, the main character also films this, so he is basically making a sex tape.
  • Two women make out as a man watches and talks about music. Then he brings one of them into another room to have sex with him. There is thrusting and moaning and brief fooling around under the bed sheets but the scene is cut short as blood appears on the bed, implying that he was stabbing her. Then the other girl attempts to leave so he chases her into the hall with a chainsaw. His bare buttocks are briefly shown but that's the extent of the nudity in this scene.
  • A man and woman have sex fully clothed, the man is seen thrusting into her, and we hear moaning and climaxing.
  • A nude woman is seen in a bathtub, her breasts are briefly seen. A man then asks her to clean her vagina from behind.
  • A dead naked girl is seen lying flat on her stomach. All we see is her butt.
  • Extreme sexual gratuitous violence against women and it's all done while showing gratuitous female nudity - completely unnecessary and demeaning.

Violence & Gore

  • We see a bunch of drawings including pictures of rape and murder and other fetishes, not very detailed but still disturbing.
  • There is a decapitated head seen in a fridge.
  • Very graphic and disturbing violence is depicted throughout.
  • A man is killed with an axe. Instead of seeing an axe enter his head, there is his reaction before he is killed, a blood spray on the killer's face, and his face in a pool of blood from a distance. When his covered body is being dragged out, it leaves a bloody trail.
  • A chainsaw is dropped on a woman from a great height. The impact is offscreen and no sounds are heard, although we see the chainsaw lodged in her back and blood pooling on the floor from a distance.
  • A few bodies of women are briefly shown in a closet, and a bloody corpse is partially seen in a bathroom for a second.
  • One woman is briefly seen with a slightly bloodied face after an implied act of violence.
  • A man is bloodlessly stabbed a few times around the upperbody.
  • A dog is swiftly stepped on and killed but this is partially obscured by a trash pile.
  • An old woman is shot in the chest and drops dead. A kitten is threatened with a gun.
  • A policeman is briefly shot in the chest and a squad car blows up.
  • A woman opens a book and is shocked to find preschool-level drawings of women being murdered and mutilated.
  • A janitor is killed quickly by a gunshot. No blood seen.
  • A man is shot in the head and slumps back in his chair with blood spraying on the wall behind him.


  • 27 uses of "fuck", 5 uses of "ass", 3 uses of "bitch", 3 uses of "dick", 2 uses of "shit", and 1 use of "faggot", as well as 11 uses of "God", 4 uses of "Jesus", 2 uses of "Goddamn", 1 use of "Christ", and 1 use of "hell".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man pours LSD into the drinks of two prostitutes without their knowledge.
  • 2 or 3 uses of cocaine. Some brief talk about using other drugs including steroids. One character appears to be under the influence of depressants.
  • Some characters smoke and drink.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene where a woman sees a man eating another woman will disturb viewers, and it is shown suddenly which may even startle some.
  • The main character Patrick Bateman is a complete psychopath, being a mentally insane serial killer who derives extreme pleasure in murdering people without remorse, all in a very brutal fashion, and is also very narssicistic. His behavior and personality are very frightening and disturbing.
  • A more accurate rating. Rated R for strong bloody violence, menace, strong sexual content, nudity, drug use and language.
