Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this torturous (literally and figuratively) horror movie is absolutely not for kids. It's full of gross-out violence -- the sort characterized by yucky wounds and bloody body parts. Violent acts include a stick in the eye, a hook in a foot, shooting, knifing, and surgery (depicted here as sadistic). The insidious motive for the murders is organ harvesting, described in some detail as a problem of class/nation inequities and depicted brutally. Characters engage in reckless sexual pursuits, though the one couple who actually have sex (off camera) use a condom. Characters drink, smoke cigarettes and pot, and are drugged by murderous villains. Language is pretty much incessant, including repetitive uses of "f--k."

Sexual Content

Girls' breasts are exposed while they're swimming and during organ harvesting surgery; girls appear repeatedly in thongs, bikinis, and sheer or net garments; brief kissing while characrters are plainly drunk/high; post-sex dialogue demonstrates the guy's surprise when the woman turns out to be a prostitute (she takes money from his wallet); girl in the shower (shoulders up); reference to sex with "girls" in Cambodia; reference to sex "up the ass."

Violence

Lots of bloody violence in close-up, including a lengthy surgery scene (liver and kidneys removed from girl, with explicit cutting and slopping); weapons include machete, metal hook, rocks, guns, jackknife; film opens on close-up of a girl's eyes and bloody surgical instruments as she pleads for her life, then screams (fade to credits); bus falls off a mountainside, leaving passengers without transportation; rock thrown at young thief makes his head bleed (and he cries); character hits head on rock in water (wound bleeds and appears in gross-out close-ups, including when Finn staples it, causing great pain/yelling); girl's fall off a cliff is shown in graphic detail (sound and image); menacing sequence as tourists explore a house (dark corners, suspenseful music); scary sequence in caves, as tourists swim to escape brute (dark, fragmented images); girl fights man by clawing and biting (bloody teeth); explicit effects of shooting (chest, head).

Language

Frequent uses of "f--k" (35+), as well as other language ("s--t," "ass," "lily-white asses," "Christ," "hell"); disparaging uses of "gringo" and "worthless Indian."

Social Behavior

Tourists are reckless and arrogant and drink, do drugs, and engage in sexual activity with virtual strangers; psycho-villain doctor is delusional and cruel; impoverished natives are vengeful and greedy. Victims are all priveleged white travelers; bad guys are dark-skinned natives.

Consumerism

Someone orders a Coke.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Cigarette smoking, beer and hard liquor-drinking (scotch), pot-smoking; prescription bottles stolen from previous victims (e.g., codeine); hash; drugs that knock out victim/tourists; blurry point-of-view shots show effects of drugging.
