MPAA Rated R for strong bloody violence, a scene of violent sexual content, language and some graphic nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • A woman is called a "whore" more than once as an insult.
  • One of the characters explains how he forced another man to walk nude in the snow. Full frontal nudity is seen from a distance, and again when he's crawling through the snow. This is shown from afar and is the only nudity in the film. But any actual nudity is extremely hard to see due to the distance and position of the mans legs.

Violence & Gore

  • As one would expect from a Tarantino film, there is some quite graphic violence, but it is not as brutal compared to his other films.
  • A woman is seen being punched in the face, elbowed in the face and kicked.
  • Two men ingest poison and vomit lots of blood; this lasts for about a full minute. This is extremely exaggerated.
  • Shots are fired with blood spurting out graphically. These shots are exaggerated and almost always done for comedic effect. They are never realistic.
  • A man is shot in his groin (the impact is not seen) all we see is blood on the floor and the man screaming in pain. Later he is seen laying on a bed holding his genitals.
  • A man's head is blown off with guns, graphic but cartoonish, done for comedic effect.
  • Right before the intermission, a man is shot in the back as he tries to leave, however, the gunshot is only heard and no impact wound is seen.
  • A man is shot after a heated situation, blood spurts out
  • Four men enter into a haberdashery and shoot everyone in it. A woman is shot graphically in the face point blank (cartoonish blood spurts), a man gets shot in the chest, two women get shot with graphic results, a man is stabbed in his back repeatedly till he is dead (the shot is someone obscured as the action is quick and we do not see the stabbing close up) and a man gets shot in the face, happens off screen but blood splatters all over the snow on the floor.
  • A man is shot in the back of his head and his brain matter and blood are splattered on the face of a woman.
  • A woman hacks off the arm of a dead man - to whom she is chained - to free herself.
  • Most of the violence in the movie is exaggerated, gunshots cause explosions of blood and heads explode in cartoonish ways. The violence is not realistic at all and is mostly done for comedic effect but still somewhat gory-*


  • 4 abuses of "Christ," 5 misuses of "Jesus," 1 of "Lord," and 36 of "God." 25 instances of the 'f' word, 20 of "hell," and 58 of "damn."
  • 56 uses of the insult "nigger," and 4 of "cracker." Also 1 instance of "piss," 23 occurrences of "ass," 18 of "shit," 23 of "bitch," 12 of "bastard," 2 of "whore," and 1 of "cunt."
  • Far less language than Django, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Pipe smoking throughout.
  • A character rolls tobacco into a cigar.
  • Drinking in a few scenes.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film constantly has an air of intensity around it and is made to feel very claustrophobic.


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

Sex & Nudity

  • It is said a man forces another man to give him oral sex in exchange for a blanket. The sequence showing the act lasts about 1 second and if you blink you'll miss the shot. It's later implied that this never even happened. Scene may be considered uncomfortable but not graphic.

Violence & Gore

  • In the final scene of the film, a woman is hung by the neck from the ceiling. She can be seen choking and flailing while two men laugh at her. Very disturbing.
  • Every single character in the movie dies in some brutal, gory way.
