Brilliant, but disturbing film that puts children in danger

This was a great film because it was different and unique. I loved the storyline as well as the acting! The film does contain some coarse language, although it's not that frequent. Just a single use of f**k, and some milder profanity. The film also contains some sexual content too. This involves a married couple having sex twice with female full frontal nudity shown, masturbation, some sex talk, as well as some seductions. However, this film does not cut back on the violence. The violence in this film is very disturbing, and some scenes may be hard to watch. This involves some mild cannibalism, bloody wounds, disturbing imagery, strong threat involving children, and more. Overall, this is a great film, but is best left for teens 17 and up.
