content-ratingsWhy is “X” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “strong bloody violence and gore, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use, and language.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes several sex scenes with nudity while being filmed, a sex scene with nudity, an implied sex scene with partial nudity, a few kissing scenes, discussions of sex vs. love, several deaths by alligator attack, gunshot, being run over by a car and stabbing with bloody results, and almost 15 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


When an ensemble of adult entertainers travel to a remote rooming house to film what they term a “good dirty movie,” they are surprised by what they find and the unwelcoming reactions of the owners of the property. With Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow, Kid Cudi, Martin Henderson, Owen Campbell and Stephen Ure. Directed by Ti West. [Running Time: 1:45]

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.
