Jacob's Ladder Parent guide

BBFC Reason
Contains strong language and violence

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
A couple is talking in bed and the woman's breasts are shown for an extended period of time. At the party, there is a pair who is intensely making out. In one of the scenes where Jacob is hallucinating , woman is shown breastfeeding a (fake?) baby. Some sexually explicit in the beginning of the movie, references to masturbation, and male genitalia A man gets undressed and takes a shower; his buttocks can briefly be seen through the translucent shower curtain, but not his penis. A woman gets in with him, the side of her breasts are shown. As a woman gets dressed, her breasts are exposed for several minutes. As Jacob is put in a bath by Jezzie, she takes off his underpants, showing his buttocks for a few seconds. There is a scene at a party where a woman is having intercourse with a demon, however this act is never shown in detail, plus the scene is very hard to see, the only thing visible is the woman's pleasured face. However, parts of the demon can be seen, lingerie of a woman, and tentacles which are on woman's private parts.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Infrequent but some of the violence is very disturbing and strong In a battlefield you see people thrashing on the ground and bleeding (disturbing) People are seen being shot or shooting (blood spurts are shown when someone is shot) A man's leg is seen shredded to pieces, while still attached to him (graphic and disturbing) A man is stabbed in the stomach with a bayonet (Seen upclose going in and out, when pulled out blood gushes) *Note that this is scene multiple times throughout the movie* A car attempts to run over a man, but fails A man gets in his car and when he starts it, it blows up In a shaky and very brief scene, you see a horn type thing shot out of a girls mouth A man faints A boy is implied to be killed as you see him walk in the street with his bike, and the scene cuts to where you see a bike under a mans tires Three men fight in a moving car, they punch and kick violently till one gets thrown out of the car In probably the most disturbing scene a man is wheeled through a demented and gore filled mental institution where you see limbs and organs all over the ground, as well as some graphic and demonic imagery that will scare and disturb lots of people A man gets a needle jammed in his forehead very brief, but some blood is seen and its very cringe worthy A war sequence is shown again, even though not as graphic people are still shown being shot and killed with some blood

Profanity Reason
17 shits, 18 fucks, other milder profanities.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
A woman smokes occasionally People drink as well It is implied that government in the movie was testing soldiers in Vietnam with the drug called "Ladder".

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Nearly whole movie is intense. The entire movie has a creepy and surreal atmosphere. Demon appearances might be scary for some people A man is chased by car. The scene is very unexpected and it comes out of nowhere. The scene where man is being wheeled through gore filled mental institution is very scary. Lots of intense scenes with demons haunting a man The movie is rather disturbing. The ending is very creepy and disturbing The opening sequences may disturb some people It is implied that main protagonist's young son was killed in the accident, even though his death is completely off screen, it is still very sad. The ending is rather sad and depressing. Jacob suffers from intense grief and guilt throughout the entire movie. A man nearly gets hit by the train, but survives. He also sees demons inside watching him, an intense and scary scene.
