MPAA Rated PG-13 for disturbing thematic content and behavior, violence and some language

Sex & Nudity

  • A germaphobic man tells three girls to remove their clothes when they get dirty, these young women are shown in bras; some of them show the shapes of their nipples.
  • This film regularly contains implications of sexual violence and the threat of rape is a constant theme. The film is predatory against young girls throughout and contains implications of paedophilia. The girls are regularly told to take off items of their clothes and 2 of the girls spend a large portion of the film semi clothed.
  • There are situations where young girls are seen in their underwear.
  • A man is seen on all fours behind a rock, presumedly naked, telling a little girl to take off her clothes so she can pretend to be an animal, telling her animals do not wear clothes. She is shown with her hands on her jacket zipper, but the scene changes just as she begins to unzip the jacket. It is possible he sexually assaulted the child, as the man is then shown fully dressed but buttoning his top, and the girl is shown fully dressed but her jacket is not longer on.

Violence & Gore

  • In several sequences of the film, a young girl is implied to be raped and abused several times.
  • A young girl points a shotgun to a man.
  • There is a off-screen act of cannibalism. We see the aftermath of one victim briefly, with her intestines visible.
  • Theres another scene where a female gets pulled away and cannibalism strongly implied.
  • The antagonist sees one 17 year old girl with knife-cuts scars on her stomach (near her navel), by her shoulders, and other parts of her body. Implying that she has been inflicting knife cuts all over her body. This is a sign of mental health issues resulting in self-harm.
  • There is a scene of a female character shooting a man, with the sight of some wounds visible on the man's body.


  • "Fuck" is uttered once in a very tense scene.
  • A character says "Mother-fuc" you will understand when you see the movie why it's cut off and a couple of uses of the s-word. Half a dozen or so other profanities include "h---," "a--," "d--n," "b--ch" and "Jesus." Casey angrily spits the crude suggestion "blow me" at one of the other girls.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A brief scene of cigarette smoking
  • A scene takes place inside of a bar where people are consuming alcohol.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The whole movie has an intense and dark feel to it and a sense of dread coming. The final 20 minutes are especially frightening.
  • There is one extremely disgusting and disturbing scene of violence. A lot of blood is shown.
  • There is an especially disturbing scene of cannibalism while the victim is still alive. Nothing is graphically shown but the psychological impact and what *is* shown will be enough to cause lingering upset to many viewers.
  • This may trigger some women, girls or anyone that has suffered rape, self harm or child abuse as threat of rape, paedophilia and male predator scenarios are consistent throughout the movie.


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

Sex & Nudity

  • A man drugs and kidnaps three young women and confines them to a locked room. When they regain consciousness he enters the room and inspects the women. He chooses one of them and drags her out of the room. The sounds of her attempting to resist his actions are audible.

Violence & Gore

  • There is an extremely disturbing scene of cannibalism that shows no blood or gore but since the human is still alive when the act starts, the mental impact is quite disturbing.
  • One of the stronger scenes depicts a man wrapping his arms around an older woman and breaking her bones while suffocating her. There are close-up shots of the man's arms around the victim's stomach, and shots of her face as she gasps. Though it is not seen, it's quite disturbing.
