Sex & Nudity

  • (I think includes kissing woman's chest) A clothed couple lies together, one on top of the other, kissing and talking.
  • A boy flashes his flaccid penis at a woman. This is brief and from distance so you don't really see anything.
  • There are pictures of topless women on the wall of a bedroom, but they are in a low lit room, so they are hard to see.
  • Two topless women are in a paddling pool/swimming pool in the background of one scene (blurred image not really noticeable).
  • A couple is seen having sex at a party (no nudity). They are interrupted when a woman barges through the door.

Violence & Gore

  • A man's hands are tied together with barbed wire and we see close ups of this. The same man is stabbed four times by different people. He is cut on the arm with a close up and stabbed twice in the abdomen. A boy tries to cut the man's tongue out, but instead he just cuts the inside of his mouth. Lots of blood runs from these wounds and from his mouth. The man later pulls his hands free from the barbed wire and cuts deep into his arms.
  • The man's injuries to his abdomen are later bandaged, there are several close graphic shots of the wound that are VERY deep and bloody. They gape somewhat and both people are visibly shocked by the damage.
  • A woman's foot is impaled as she runs and steps on a spike on the ground. She later pushes it out of her foot by pushing her foot down on a log, forcing the object out. It is covered in blood and we see it come out.
  • A teenager is beaten severely (Maybe to death). The camera is shown from the point of view of the boy being beaten so all we see are fists flying towards the screen.
  • Characters are covered in blood for the last half of the film. Very unsettling.
  • Two scenes of brief animal abuse shown from a distance.

Profanity

  • The F bomb and S Bomb are dropped on a regular basis.
  • The C bomb is said once or twice, and seen written.
  • Frequent use of milder language too.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Adults are seen drinking at a outdoor party briefly.
  • Some teenagers are seen drinking and smoking.
  • 'Poppers' are used by the ringleader of the youths and he forces them onto one of the younger kids to keep him going and wake him up.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Multiple times knives are drawn with intent.
  • The film starts off slowly with a kid being bullied by the others very tame however slightly shocking at times.
  • There are repeated moments of suspense where the main characters almost caught or caught.
  • The whole second half of the film is very intense.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A dog is stabbed by accident and bleeds to death. A boy touches the dog's neck and we see blood on his hands.
  • A dead man is set alight and a child is burnt alive. When the child is burnt alive, we only hear his screams and we see his head and upper torso on fire in the background but only a fraction of a second or so.
  • A child is stabbed in the neck with a shard of glass. When it's pulled out, we hear a short burst of blood spewing from his neck. He is then seen in someone's arms as he chokes and dies.
  • A kid runs out into a road, a van spot's the kid and accelerates with no intention of avoiding, the kid is hit at a fast speed and flies off and over the van and is shown un-moving bleeding on the floor.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There is a prolonged torture scene where a man tied to a tree stump is systematically stabbed by several of the youths. The younger kids have to be forced into it by the ringleader who has one of them film everything as evidence that they were involved that he later uses to blackmail them into continuing the terror. It is both very frightening and intense.
  • A kid is forced into throwing a match at a couple covered in petrol and tied to a tree stump. The kid and others are obviously not OK with this but still let it go ahead.
