VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man punches a woman in the face and she falls to the ground; he picks her up and slits her throat (we hear the slice and see blood splattered on the side of a nearby car). A man stabs another man twice in the abdomen (we hear the cutting and see blood drip from the blade). A man jogging across an intersection is struck by a car, thrown into the windshield and lands hard on the street (we see his bloody face as the driver of the car approaches and stomps on his head; we hear a crunch and understand the man was killed). A woman holds a knife to a man's throat and threatens to kill him; another man shoots the man twice (we see him fall dead and he has blood on his wounds). A woman stabs a man three times (we hear the crunches and see blood dribble from his mouth).
 A man chases a woman and her two children, they get in a car and the man approaches from behind the car as the woman speeds over him (we hear a thump and he yells, and we see him bloody and cut up later); another man shoots at the car and it drives off the road.
 A man tries to get in a house and another man punches him hard in the face several times, then kicks him in the head while he is on the ground and holds a gun to his head (we see the man's bloody face wounds); the man on the ground hits the other man in the crotch before he is knocked unconscious. A man slams a woman into a door, drags her by the hair and talks about molesting her daughter before killing her. A teen girl hits a man from behind and he punches her hard in the face; he holds her against a table and she struggles to get away as he seems to be preparing to rape her. A woman is grabbed from behind by a man and she bites his hand and screams; they struggle and she kicks him in the face twice, then stabs him in the chest with a broken glass stem (we see blood) and she runs and he chases her into dark woods. A teen girl stabs a man in the abdomen with a shard of broken pottery while a boy holds a gun on the man and shoots (he misses). A woman climbs along a roof and pries a skylight before she is punched by a man and slips on the roof; she jumps knocking a man off the roof and against a tree (we hear a crunch when his head hits the tree and he lies motionless) and the woman lands hard on the ground (she's OK). A woman slips down a hill and lands on the hood of a car while being chased by a man with a crowbar; they fight and she hits him hard in the head with a rock knocking him unconscious (we see his very bloody head later). A man with a large knife acts threateningly to several people in several scenes. A man holds a large knife to a teen girl's chin. A teen girl and a pre-teen boy are bound and have duct tape over their mouths in a couple of scenes.

A man grabs a teen girl from behind and she struggles and screams. A woman drops a glass and it shatters on the ground. A woman sees her two children being held by men in their house and tries to get to them by throwing a chair at a window; it won't break. A teen girl climbs through a small passage to get to another room in a house and avoid being seen; she is nearly caught.
 Two men pour gasoline around a house and prepare to set it on fire; a man tells another man to tie two children to their beds and light the house on fire. A man with a gun searches a house. Explosions flash outside a house and a man drops to the ground thinking that he is being shot at. A man with a baseball bat searches outside a house. A man's shirt is shown with blood on it after he killed a woman.
 Several men tear up rooms in a house looking for something; they break furniture and glass. A teen girl comes out of a bathroom and we hear the toilet flush.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
