BBFC Ratings info

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
At approximately the 1 hour and 7 minutes into the film, a man is seen naked on the floor. His bare buttock is visible. His penis is very briefly visible as he gets up from the floor. Full frontal female nudity and male rear nudity are shown while they have sex at approximately the 1 hour and 50 minutes mark. Full frontal and rear female nudity in several scenes. Two other topless as well. There's 2 short, non-graphic sex scenes and a 3rd implied one.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
The goriest scene is where a guy gets his arm ripped off. LOTS of blood. Other scenes include a panther's body being disected and then melting; a woman is clawed by a panther and we see a nasty clawmark on her ankle; another woman is seen dead, ripped to pieces with blood all over; a guy is seen dead in a tree. The few brief transformation scenes are somewhat gruesome, showing splitting skin and heads.

Profanity Reason
Not much; 5 or less f-words.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Rated R for strong horror violence and gore, disturbing images, graphic nudity, and some language. Lots of disturbing or unusual scenes throughout. Some of those mentioned in violence/gore are intense, especially the arm-ripping scene. Several frightening moments of shock and suspense involving the leopards, who often snarl and snap with little to no warning. The atmosphere of most of the movie is very dark and unpleasant. Children could be very frightened by this picture.
