|nudity||4/10 There is a short sex scene, no nudity. A woman attempts to entice a man to have sex with her. Nothing is shown. A sleeping woman is briefly fondled. There are a few sexual remarks. Nothing that wouldn't be seen in a PG-13 movie.|
|violence||8/10 There is quite a lot of violent and gory content throughout the movie. One of the four stories is especially violent, featuring many instances of dismemberment, all shown graphically on camera. This particular story is played more for laughs, and is not realistic, yet still over the top and gruesome. Gory images feature heavily in another story. Someone gets shot repeatedly. Blood is seen. Decapitations, at least four. All graphic. A character goes on a killing spree. Blood and gore. A person is impaled, and set on fire. Graphic. Someones corpse is seen having been earlier strangled. A corpse is also seen with an object stabbed through them.|
|profanity||7/10 There is strong language throughout. Fuck is said at least 25 times.|
|alcohol||2/10 Several older characters consume alcohol.|
|frightening||6/10 One of the stories is violent and intense, although played more for laughs. Another story is tense with a few jump scares. There are scenes in dark locations that may scare some. 27/50 Recommended Rating: R for strong graphic violence and gore, disturbing images, language and some sexuality|
