if they can handle it

i mean if your kids are mature enough. the movie is weird but its good. it shows a babys face getten eaten off by a woman (the protagonist is dreaming it). the protagonist dies from a cocaine overdose and comes back to life from black goo. the mother is shown spiking her daughters drink with pills and she drags her out of the house. the mother is shown having an orgy with over 15 people. a couple is shown having sex but they decay and become stuck together as the man is still alive. a man commits suicide with a fork, while two others drown themselves. the movie has a good story and is creepy from time to time but its good as long as your kids can handle it.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
