Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Cloverfield...
Once again New York City is under attack by an alien monster that knocks down buildings, crushes cars and spawns spider-like creatures that eat the local citizens. The gore, including bleeding wounds, gruesome attacks and blood-splattered walls in a triage unit, is made worse by the handheld camera shots that produce their own kind of nausea. Collapsing buildings and bridges result in numerous implied deaths. Fighter jets repeatedly bomb the city. Personal injuries involve a woman impaled by a metal bar, a helicopter crash and characters bitten by aliens. Frequent profanities, brief discussions of sexual activity, a scene that implies an unmarried couple are sleeping together and comments about burning homeless people are also contained in the script.
