Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has violence, as ghostly sea zombies slash into living folks with their cutlasses. This happens in quick "shock" edits, which are careful to leave the worst of it to your imagination. Still the director's favorite trick seems to be a nice, shiny blade suddenly popping out of a victim who's been run clean through. The movie is still too violent for kids and tweens.
Hitchhiker Elizabeth and motorist Nick are shown in bed together the morning after they meet. Other men make mildly suggestive remarks about their attractions to Stevie.
Indiscriminate killing by swords and gaffing-hooks, and victims including a grandmotherly old-lady babysitter. One dead body seems to have had its eyes poked out. No extreme blood-spatter gore, at least.
The F-word is uttered once.
There's no one you would want your kid imitating.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Lots of beer consumed, and Pastor Malone is an alcoholic.
