Extra Ordinary | 2019 | R | – 5.6.6

content-ratingsWhy is “Extra Ordinary” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “language, sexual content and some horror violence.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a non-explicit sex scene, several discussions of sex and virginity, and a walking stick with the shape of a phallus carved into the top; a woman is murdered by having her throat slashed (we see a lot of blood), a teen girl and a goat explode to bloody bits, there are two accidental deaths with a man being struck by a truck and a clock falling on a woman’s head, incantations performed to communicate with the spirits of the dead, a giant demon threatening people, and many scenes of a man vomiting ectoplasm into jars; and nearly 20 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


Comedy and horror are combined in an Irish setting: A lonely driving instructor (Maeve Higgins) reluctantly uses her ability to communicate with ghosts to save the daughter of a local widower (Barry Ward) from the clutches of a devil-worshiping celebrity (Will Forte) determined to sacrifice a virgin to restore his defunct musical career. Also with Claudia O’Doherty, Jamie Beamish, Terri Chandler, Risteard Cooper and Emma Coleman. Directed by Mike Ahern & Enda Loughman. [Running Time: 1:34]

Extra Ordinary SEX/NUDITY 5

 – The top of a long walking stick is carved to resemble a phallus and testicles and a man uses it to search for a virgin. A man and woman kiss, he climbs on top of her and it is implied she invites him to have sex in order to take her virginity (they are both fully clothed) and the voice of the man’s dead wife instructs the woman as to a sexual act that he likes; they are later covered with a sheet and they share a cigarette.
 An unconscious teen girl falls through a hole in a floor and into a deep chasm where we are told a demon is waiting for her to have sex to culminate a deal made with a man. A woman says, “My first time was a threesome.” People discuss whether a teen girl is a virgin and her father blames a boy the girl knows, and she says, “Who said it was a guy?” People discuss the type of sex a woman had, and whether it would be considered penetrative. A man talks about having summoned a virgin for a sacrifice in exchange for fame and success. A remark is made about having sex with a goat. A remark is made about a teen girl being “deflowered by the Devil.” A woman makes a few sexually suggestive hand gestures. A man proposes to a woman and she declines.
 A woman takes off her skirt in her kitchen and we see her wearing pantyhose.

Extra Ordinary VIOLENCE/GORE 6

 – A man slashes a woman’s throat and we see blood pour from the wound before he covers her head with a cloth. We hear what sounds like an explosion in another room and see a woman splattered with blood; we then see a teen girl cut in half and lying in a pool of blood on the floor (we see intestines and a lot of blood). A video shows what happens if you try to wake a levitating goat and we see the animal explode into bloody bits. A woman driving a car reverses the vehicle and crashes into another cart driving behind her; as this happens a man has had his hand in the partially opened window of the lead car and one of his fingers is severed (we see the severed digit with blood on the passenger’s lap and he throws it out the window as the injured man yells); the lead car driver grabs the foot of a levitating teen girl floating along the road and speeds away while pulling the girl along and the car strikes a bird that falls to the ground injured.
 We see a woman holding a dog leash over a swirling puddle of water in a pothole and we are told that a dog is at the end of the leash; when the spirit of the dog is drawn into a man, he barks and spins around in a road until he is struck by an oncoming truck and killed (we hear the collision; we do not see the aftermath). A woman is shown reading a newspaper when a clock falls off the wall above her and crashes down onto her head (we hear a crunch and understand that she died from the blow). A man falls into a deep chasm and he screams as he falls and the opening closes up behind him (implying that he is dead). A giant demon covered with a white sheet and with bloody eyeholes cut into it is shown yelling and threatening people while pointing a boney finger from under the cloth.
 A man’s very bloody hand is shown wrapped with a bandage and it is missing a finger. A man vomits ectoplasm onto a table and another man scoops it into his hand (we see slimy goo). A woman performs an incantation and the spirit of a man enters another man and speaks to his living wife; when the spirit then exits the man’s body, the living man vomits ectoplasm into a jar (we see the slimy, bubbly goo as it pours into the jar); the ectoplasm gathering is performed at least nine more times and we see goo being vomited into jars and into puddles on the ground or on a table in each case. A drop of blood is dripped onto a pentagram etched on a floor and the outline glows as the floor falls away opening a deep chasm; an unconscious teen girl falls into the hole and it is implied that a demon waits for her below. A man slams another man’s head into a keyboard and they fight briefly before the man burns the other man on the forehead with a cigarette (we see the burn mark).
 A man and a woman talk to another woman about occurrences on her farm and we see a garbage bin open its lid and make grumbling sounds. An unconscious teen girl is shown levitating off the floor in a large room with a pentagram etched on the floor. An unconscious teen girl is shown levitating above her bed in several scenes and in one scene a man and a woman guide her floating body out of the house and into the back of a car. We see a video of a levitating goat. A teen girl is flung out of a deep chasm and we see her covered with slime but otherwise unharmed.
 A man is struck in the head when a closet door swings open (we see his bruised eyebrow later). A plate is flung out of a dishwasher and sails past a woman’s head before slamming into a wall behind her and shattering. A man cuts his own finger and drips a drop of blood in a bowl while performing incantations in a couple of scenes. While inhabited by his dead wife’s spirit a man punches himself in the face twice (no injuries are shown). A man catches a bird on the end of a knife (we see it impaled).
 A very pregnant woman tells a man that she is in labor and lies back on a floor moaning; the man makes a panicked comment about seeing something coming out of a hole under her dress (we do not see this) and we eventually hear a baby crying and see the newborn wrapped in a blanket. A man takes a driving lesson and when the car lurches forward, he slams his head against the steering wheel and we see him with a bloody nose. During a driving lesson a young man backs into a pole on a sidewalk and curses (the pole is knocked over but we see no other damage done).
 A couple of scenes show people walking on sidewalks and across streets and when a woman looks at them, they are covered with white sheets (like ghosts). Several scenes show inanimate objects gesturing to a woman as she drives by in her car and it is implied that the objects are occupied by ghosts or spirits of the dead. A woman shows another woman several photographs of a funeral procession (we see the hearse with a casket inside it) and she says that she didn’t know the deceased. A mounted deer’s head appears to be crying and a woman tastes a drop. French fries float in the air above a fryer basket.
 A man on the telephone talks about having “summoned the magic girl” and then says, “After the sacrifice.” A woman says, “I’m sorry I murdered you, Daddy,” while standing at a roadside shrine for her deceased father. Words are seen written in the steam on a mirror in a bathroom and a man responds to the message as if someone is there with him. A woman tells another woman that she should perform an “exwifeorcism” to get rid of a man’s deceased wife’s ghost. A woman imagines her father asking her, “Why did you slaughter me Rose?” A man says that he doesn’t want to talk about “Killing my dead wife.” A woman looking at a tabloid magazine asks, “How hungry would you have to be to eat your own child?” A video about supernatural subjects says that by eating cheese it is possible that you have eaten a ghost. We hear about “stuck people” that are trapped between life and the spirit world. A remark is made about it being “Curtains for Christian.” A man and a woman argue in a few scenes. A woman complains of having a panic attack and fears killing someone if she performs an incantation. A woman yells at a man in several scenes. A woman berates a delivery person and asks, “Are you deaf?” A man proposes to a woman and she declines.
 A man spits in a sink after brushing his teeth (we see saliva). A dog scoots on the rug in a house and a message is written on a piece of toasts stating that the dog has worms. A woman is shown wearing a green, crackled facial mask. A man flatulates a couple of time when being inhabited by spirits.

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.
