- Maturity Rating Reason
- Sex & Nudity
- Sex & Nudity Reason
- In a scene in a graveyard, a character licks and sucks on a women's nipple.
Two implied sex scenes
About 20 minutes into the movie, two characters are in a graveyard about to make love. The woman pulls down her top, and the man removes his pants. He is seen with her panties in his mouth, and is about to penetrate her but gets interrupted by his younger brother.
2 characters have sex. The lady grinds and you see one breast in closeup while the woman's hand is over the other. Later, she kills the man she has sex with without a top on, having her breasts exposed.
- Violence & Gore
- Violence & Gore Reason
- A man is stabbed.
An arm is bitten blood flows from the wound
A man has his head literally drilled into by a lethal flying sphere. (Rather fake) looking blood flies and gushes out of the sphere, squirting everywhere - almost comedic nowadays but is also played for laughs.
A teenager is manhandled by a man with unnatural strength.
A rather fake looking large fly attacks a boy but still manages to be an effective scene.
A boy cuts off a mans fingers which ooze yellow blood. (rubbery looking)
A car crash
A boy blows a hole in his bedroom door.
A dwarf is impaled by a branch, yellow blood is seen oozing out of it's mouth.
- Profanity Reason
- Occasional light swear words 'bastard' 'son of a bitch'. At least 1 "fuck" and "shit". Reference to a "retarded kid"
- Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
- A man drinks beer at a bar
A boy takes a gulp of beer
- Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
- RATED R for violence, nudity, and for some language
A teenager is terrified when he cannot remove his hand from a box. The idea of the death of a loved one, and the theme of death and funeral homes may be disturbing to some.
The movie is both played for laughs and scares
The Tall Man is very menacing and will no doubt creep out or even scare viewers
Although dated, the movie is very intense and graphic in some scenes. The violence looks fake but it makes for some memorable scenes that linger in you mind for a very long time.
Many intense scenes such as a car chase, two (intense and creepy) chase scenes between a boy and The Tall Man
The ending scene is very surprising and may scare viewers
