Thinner | 1996 | R | - 4.7.6

Based on the Stephen King novel, this film has an attorney worried about excessive weight loss when a gypsy puts a curse on him.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo, bare male buttocks (nude man weighing himself), a woman raises her skirt and we see revealing thong underwear. A woman touches her husband and then performs oral sex on him (no nudity but we see her hand and head moving suggestively as well as his reactions).

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Disfigured people: a man with a disgusting sore on his face, a man with bloody sores all over his face, a man looks like a snake complete with scales. A woman is run over by a car and leaves blood on the windshield. A man squeezes his own hand and blood drips down his arm. Several beatings -- a woman's head is bloody after it's bashed against a ladder, bloody scratch marks on a man's face. Gory scenes: A bloody corpse with a chicken head sticking out of its mouth, a ball bearing is shot through a hand (a lot of blood), a man twists a knife through a man's hand, blood is squeezed out of a hand and into a pie, a bloody corpse is found. Reckless driving, explosions. Threatening with guns, attempted shots with a slingshot containing ball bearings, a shoot-out uses machine guns and results in explosions. One man is shot to death after he's been bashed on the head.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 10 F-words, an obscene gesture, a couple of scatological references, some mild obscenities, a few anatomical 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.
