VIOLENCE: 10/10. Intense violence and strong gore. Monsters rip off human heads, scoop out their brains, and eat their insides. Broken and bloody limbs are displayed, and bloody walls are shown in a house. And the carnage doesn't stop there. A boat is under siege by monsters, where humans are gutted, torn apart, and skewered. A man describes how children are tossed to monsters in a pit, only to be gored and ripped open. A man's legs are ripped off, and a man is turned inside out. Monsters are stabbed, blown apart, and humans are attacked with bloody results. Autopsy is performed on a monster. A dead and scarred body of a girl is found at a cemetery. A mother's head is torn off, and her shoulders are dislocated. Guns are fired at monsters, sometimes striking them. Suspenseful/frightening moments throughout. Very gruesome, but a 9th grader should handle it. Not for kids.
Very good story! 5 out of 5 stars!
