Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Spanish horror movie isn't for spookhouse-loving kids. While it starts out slow and relatively restrained, it ultimately builds to scenes of ghastly violence and horror, including people (and babies) drowning or fed to flesh-eating boars. There's also a lingering shot of a fully-nude woman and some language.
- Sexual Content
- A belated-but-lingering scene of full-frontal female nudity that doesn't seem to have much to do with anything. Another glimpse of bare breasts in a possibly pornographic movie on hotel TV.
- Grisly scenes of boars eating human flesh, mutilated zombies, and a man digging a bullet out of his own leg and sterilizing the wound with a heated knife. Attempts to kill two babies (by drowning and feeding to pigs).
- "F--k" and "s--t" are used under stress.
- Social Behavior
- The heroine is a divorced single parent/career woman who seems innately unhappy, but the characters are so thinly sketched that it's hard to get an impression of them or how their demeanors contribute to their eventual fate.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- The heroine smokes, but she loses her cigarettes in a river early on and doesn't resume the habit.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
