SEX/NUDITY 1 - Some sexual innuendo. One passionate kiss. One cleavage shot.
A man briefly looks at a centerfold magazine.
VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - We see several scenes in which several corpses are on
couches and on the floor of a room; in each subsequent scene, the corpses become more and
more bloody and decomposed. A pool of blood surrounds a corpse, and we see a woman pulling
something bloody from its slit throat. A woman slices a man's stomach open; as he's lying
on the floor, we see blood and perhaps a piece of intestine seep from the wound. One
lingering shot of a woman taping pieces of a corpse's bloody, decomposed chest together,
then cleaning the chest with a household cleaner (later, a woman falls on the corpse and
her hand goes into its bloody torso). A woman uses an inhaler that has apparently been
filled with poison; she falls to the ground and we see foam dripping from her mouth. A man
is electrocuted, and we see his bloody, charred hand. A woman is threatened with a knife;
we hear but don't see her being killed. A woman finds a dead person who apparently died
from natural causes; there's no blood. We see a corpse covered with a bloody sheet and
another covered corpse being carried to an ambulance. A woman tries to strangle a woman
with a scarf, and a woman hits another in the head with a tire iron. We see what looks
like a small, bloody body part stuck on a clock, and in a few scenes we see a pair of
bloody, blackened hands on sticks (a cat licks them in one scene). A woman slides in a
pool of blood. We see a bloody hand and what could be a severed head in a duffel bag. A
woman puts a dead, stiff mouse into a garbage disposal (we hear it being ground up). A man
who's driving a car gropes a girl's knee; she grabs his hand and causes him to run into a
telephone pole. A woman sets fire to a house.

scatological references, many mild obscenities and many insults. [profanity glossary]
