Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dark horror/thriller isn't for kids. The plot focuses on a home invasion, and while most of the actual violence occurs off-screen, the results are very visible (bloody wounds; tearful, frightened faces; dead bodies; blood splattered on walls and furniture). Tense scenes include threats of violence, pursuit of a victim through dark hallways, and sexual taunting (which culminates in a woman being forced to strip, though no nudity is shown). A scene in which a woman appears in her bra and panties is decidedly un-erotic. Some language, including several uses of "f--k."

Sexual Content

In an excruciating scene during the home invasion, a woman is forced to strip: though the camera shows no explicit nudity, her face shows her humiliation and trauma. A woman in bra and panties is forced to hop (legs and arms taped) across the room in a long, difficult take. Repeated threats of sexual violence and discussion of sex by villains, as well as salacious reference to "titties" and to a young man having sex with his mother.

Violence

Gruesome effects of violence visible throughout, though most acts take place off-screen. An attack with a golf club leaves a leg bloody; slaps, beatings, kicks, and stabbings leave bruises and bloody wounds. Villains torment hostages by kicking and pushing on a broken leg and other wounds. A child is slapped, pushed, and menaced; a child is also shot with a rifle off-screen (blood shown on wall and TV screen) -- his parents react in racking sobs. Dog's death suggested by off-screen yelp; its body is then shown.

Language

Occasional but pointed language includes "f--k," "s--t" (sometimes with "bull-"), "hell," "a--hole," and "p---y."

Social Behavior

Villains are cruel, soulless, and brutal; victims are whimpering, clever but ineffectual.

Consumerism

Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Conversations about drug addiction and an alcoholic father.
