The Forsaken | 2001 | R | - 9.10.10

A budding filmmaker (Kerr Smith) takes a cross-country trip to go to his sister's wedding, but he unfortunately encounters some pretty mean vampires who want to kill or maybe eat him just a little. Also with Brendan Fehr, Johnathon Schaech, A.J. Buckley, and Izabella Miko. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 9 - Several instances of sexual innuendo, including references to oral sex and vampire sex. We repeatedly (flashbacks) see a naked woman in the shower; she rubs her bare breasts with blood several times. A woman in a convertible lifts up her top and shows both bare breasts to a man in a car beside her. A man takes off a woman's shirt and pants and we see several shots of her bare breasts. We see repeated scenes and numerous shots of a woman in a tub; we see her bare breasts several times. We see a naked man and woman in bed together; the woman's breasts are visible. A naked woman and uncovered woman on a bed talk to a man and we see her breasts. We see a couple having sex in a car, making loud noises and eating blood off each other while fornicating; the woman's breasts are visible. A man pulls down the top of a woman's underwear. A woman is standing in a crowd and we see her bare breasts. We see a man in boxers on a bed; he hears lots of sex noises coming from the next room.

A man hits another man in the head with a shovel. A man punches a woman in the face; she catches fire and then explodes. A man hits a woman over the head with a shovel. Twice a car drives through a wall. Gas leeks out of a line in a motel and the building explodes (lots of flames). A man is shot in the gut and blood squirts out all over his shirt and face. A man is shot with a shotgun and we see the blood wound all over his shirt (front and back); the man is blown by the force of the gun onto a car (blood is on the windshield) and then a man covers the dying man and his car with gasoline and ignites it (both man and car go up in flames). A man punches a man in the face; a man punches a woman in the face. A man shoots a moving car several times. We see blood all over a man's face and hands.

A man's throat is slit and blood gushes out; a woman starts ferociously licking up the man's bloody neck as if she's a wild animal. A man puts a gun in another's mouth and shoots him to death. A few times a man vomits blood. Two cars collide with an oncoming car. A car runs into a truck, causing a big explosion. We see a knife go into a man and watch him vomit blood. A man and woman pin a woman to the bed and the man pulls down her underwear and bites her (infects her) below the naval (we see blood). A woman is shot several times and knocked through a window; she falls off a roof and dies. A man is shot in the face and we see blood dripping down his face and arm. A tarantula crawls up a woman's arm. A man is shot several times in the chest. A man chokes another and punches him in the face, causing blood to drip out of the victim's nose and mouth.

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.
