Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this holiday-themed horror remake isn't for kids. Although most of the grisly violence is implied rather than explicit, there's no shortage of spattering blood and jump scenes. Sorority house sisters are murdered one by one with weapons including knives, Christmas lights, a pointy Christmas ornament, and a glass unicorn figurine. The film also includes scenes of implied incest, online porn, vomiting, decapitation, bloody slicks on the floor, the consumption of human flesh cooked into Christmas cookie shapes, and human eyeballs being ripped out and eaten. Characters also smoke cigarettes, drink wine, and use lots of foul language (at least 30 "f--ks").

Sexual Content

Girl who kisses boyfriend is doomed; sorority house mother holds up lingerie she's received as a gift; porn footage on computer screen shows sexual movement (male over female's back), but no explicit body parts; sexual parts named ("ball sac"); reference to sitting on "Santa's lap" serial killer's sexual motivation is discussed; girl in shower seen from back and side (outline of breast, bottom visible) -- as killer's eye watches her. Billy's mother has sex with his stepfather, who falls asleep drunk; she then approaches Billy and drops her robe (viewers see her back and assume she has sex with her son, as his daughter is born nine months later).

Violence

Repeated stabbings, smothering with plastic bags, splattering blood everywhere; Billy repeatedly pulls out and eats his victims' eyeballs; Billy makes "cookies" of his mother's flesh (with Christmas cutters), then bakes and eats them, with blood everywhere; weapons include knives, a garden hook, ice picks, a sharpened candy cane, a glass unicorn firgure, a barbecue fork, a fireplace poker, a defilibrator, Christmas lights (strangling), and a Christmas tree (impaling); decapitated head rolls out of an opened car door; Christmas tree decorated with eyeballs and decapitated heads.

Language

Frequent use of "f--k" (30+); repeated use of "s--t" (15-ish); also several uses of "damn."

Social Behavior

The serial killer is bad; his alcoholic mother abuses him (sexually and physically) and murders his VIetnam veteran father; Billy's sister is also his daughter; sorority girls make dumb choices, and one by one are killed by demented/evil Billy.

Consumerism

Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Billy's mother smokes cigarettes frequently; she's drinking and drunk in almost every scene she's in.
