Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this 3D horror movie is full of bloody, bleak, and violent deaths -- including dismemberment, disembowelment, explosions, impalements, brutal mutilations, crushing blows, and more. Although we rated earlier entries in the franchise differently, the nature of 3D makes the violence here so much more brutal and intense that we don't recommend this movie for any kids. There's also a sex scene with nudity, plenty of strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), and some drinking and smoking.

Sexual Content

Kissing; suggestive talk about oral sex; a sex scene featuring topless male and female participants in 3D.


Constant, brutal, bloody, and graphic violence, including (but not limited to) the following: People cut in two by shrapnel from an explosion, crushed by falling pieces of metal, graphically impaled on stakes, struck by vehicles, dragged behind a tow trick while set aflame, smashed into bloody gobbets by a flying tire, killed by having their guts sucked out of their body by a defective pool pump, struck in the eye by a high-velocity rock, penetrated with flying nails, a man struck by a flying heavy object that jams him through a fence until he's cut into diagonal shards of bloody flesh, and much, much more. And it's all shown in excruciating detail, with realistic, bloody special-effects makeup in 3D.


Plenty of strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "prick," "dick," "p---y," "damn," "hell," "oh my God," "goddamn," and more. Also racial epithets, including the "N' word, "chocolate," and "redneck."

Social Behavior

The way the film treats death as a relentless, bloody pursuer negates any more positive potential take-aways (i.e. quit planning, start living, and enjoy every day).


Brands visible on-screen include Pepsi products on multiple occasions, Nokia, and more.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink beer and hard liquor and smoke cigarettes. A character is a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and seems to be handling recovery well.
