Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie isn't for kids. It features gruesome (and, once it begins, relentless) violence implemented by knives, rifles, and brutal beatings. Characters drink and smoke cigarettes (at least until they are attacked by the killer); one couple kisses briefly. On the road, they use filthy gas station bathrooms. Girls scream, escape, fight back, and scream again. Alarming images include bloody faces, threats of rape, bound limbs, gags, blood smears on floors and walls, and a graphic description (with shadowy visual demonstration) of a torture method by which the killer severs a girl's spine but leaves her conscious (he calls it "head on a stick," and says it was practiced in the Vietnam war).

Sexual Content

Mild kissing between two nice kids; brutal rape threat, pulling off clothes, and crotch fondling by killer.


Once the kids are kidnapped, brutal, grim violence is relentless: by knife, rifle, beating, kicking, and an especially grotesque "" whereby the killer severs a girl's spine.


Cursing (multiple f-words, as well as derogatory slang).

Social Behavior

Kidnapping, torture, serial killing.


Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters smoke cigarettes and drink; victims are drugged.
