Natural Born Killers | 1994 | R | - 7.10.9

Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis star as two psychopathic killers who become media darlings.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - There are several shots of bare breasts, as well as scenes of scantily clad men and women. There are also several sex scenes which include a lot of passionate groping, stroking and kissing, masturbation, implied oral sex, and one sex scene which leads to strangulation. Animals are shown copulating and incest is implied when a father touches his daughter inappropriately.

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - Many brutal and gruesome acts of violence are shown throughout the film. Scenes of carnage on TV screens play in the background of several scenes. There are beatings with bare hands and blunt objects, one character is tied to a bed and then it is set on fire, many people are shot to death, there is death by stabbing, and scenes of mutilation. Some of the scenes which depict killings are done off-screen, although threat and terror are shown. In one scene bloody bodies are shown hanging and strewn with blood streaked everywhere.

LANGUAGE 9 - About 60 F-words (about 15 are "bleeped" out), about 20 scatological terms, and many sexual references.

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.
