It was really bloody and gory definitely not for kids under 16 if you want your kids to watch something a little scary but not as VIOLENT as this i would go for Aliens. Aliens is way less innapropriate than this and its less innapropriate than Venom and Venom 2. This movie has 10 alligators ripping one mans limbs off. And I think there was 11 or 12 uses of the F word.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
