Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that director Rob Zombie's "re-imagined" slasher flick leaves no blood, gore, or sex to viewers' imagination: It's all here in spades. Savage stabbings and slayings are presented in ugly close-up. Most (though not all) of killer Michael Myers' victims seem to be sexually active teenagers, and viewers see female characters in various forms of undress, including nearly full nudity. Characters -- including kids -- swear robustly ("f--k," "s--t," etc.).

Sexual Content

Lots of teenage sex, with near-full female nudity. Another character, an exotic dancer, gyrates in minimal clothing. Kids and adults talk crudely and enthusiastically about masturbation, promiscuity, and stepfather incest. The pages of a pornographic magazine are riffled through, and one victim thinks Michael Myers is looking for a homosexual act in a bathroom stall.

Violence

Horrendous up-close beatings, bashings, stabbings, hangings, and strangulation. One victim is left dangling on a door, pinned by the knife; another is drowned as blood fountains out of his mouth. Two people are shot at close range. Viewers see victims' faces in bloody close-up most of the time. Many pets are killed, but viewers only see evidence photos.

Language

"F--k" and "s--t" are used routinely (even by kids); other language includes "c--t" spelled out (oh good, it's educational).

Social Behavior

Most of the film's characters range from merely unsympathetic to absolutely loathsome, including creepy and nasty grownups and bullying and promiscuous teenagers (one of whom talks gleefully about manipulating her parents' divorce for her own ends). Some of this is used to illustrate the environment that makes Michael Myers into a vicious killing machine -- i.e. that his victims "deserve" it -- but other characters who are inoffensive (and even gentle) die just as hideously.

Consumerism

Plugs for other horror movies admired by the filmmakers, in the form of clips from The Thing and White Zombie. Heavy selection of pop-rock tunes on the soundtrack, KISS T-shirt, one prominent porn magazine title.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

High schoolers smoke and drink beer.
