Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this slasher remake is a never-ending series of bloody, brutal, violent murders perpetrated by a mutilated sociopath. There are several explicit sex scenes, as well as scenes that mingle sexuality and violence -- like when a topless woman is knifed through the head with a machete. And as if all that weren't enough, characters swear nonstop, drink, and discuss and use drugs (particularly marijuana). The fact that all the pot-smoking characters wind up dead shouldn't be considered incisive social commentary, since those who don't partake wind up dead, too.
- Sexual Content
- Multiple sex scenes with nude breasts and buttocks shown; extensive discussion of sexual acts, positions, and body parts; a woman water skis topless and is then killed with a machete (while still topless). Suggestive dancing.
- Constant, bloody, and brutal violence. A woman is tied in a sleeping bag and hoisted over a fire to be burned alive. Multiple machete stabbings, slashings, and slayings; blood spurts from slit throat. Decapitations, with severed heads and neck-stumps shown in detail. A man is pierced through the head with an arrow. A topless woman hiding in the water under a dock is stabbed from above through the top of her head with a machete and raised up so her breasts are visible at the moment of her death. A man is stabbed through the eye and pinned to a door with a fireplace poker. A man is struck by a hurled axe. A man is dragged into a tree shredder by a chain wrapped around his neck. Extensive depiction of victims' bloody remains.
- A ceaseless barrage of foul language, including multiple uses of "f--k," "s--t," "ass," "piss," "p---y," "t-ts," "bulls--t," "whacking off," "blowjob," "a--hole," "dick," "crap," "Jesus Christ," and more.
- Social Behavior
- No positive messages. The movie plays up traditional slasher movie stereotypes in which spoiled, drug-taking, sexed-up teens get brutally killed.
- Heineken, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Aquafina are mentioned by name; Moet champagne and Cadillac vehicles are obvious product placement.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- References to and depictions of marijuana and marijuana smoking (using bongs, bowls, and joints). Characters drink beer, wine, champagne, and hard liquor to excess and play drinking games.
