Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film is filled with bloody violence, including a wholesale massacre of adults by their own children. The portrayal of a community run by kids who have killed all the parents isn't remotely pleasant or idealized, but it's still disturbing.

Sexual Content

A radio preacher says "fornicator" (without defining it), and that's about all.

Violence

Abundant throat-slashings, stabbings, beatings, climactic explosions. A juvenile is struck by a car. A dog is killed (offscreen), and another character's hand forced is toward a deli meat slicer (though we don't get to see the results). A willing human sacrifice cuts himself in ritual bloodletting.

Language

Christ's name in vain (ironically).

Social Behavior

A couple of stalwart, happily married (but reckless driving) grownups are in the lead roles, surrounded by mostly fanatical and violent kids, who are more interesting characters, alas. Two of the smallest children are friendly and helpful. The hero, an emergency-room doctor, has no problem abandoning an unconscious marauder at the end.
