Why is The Last Witch Hunter rated PG-13? The Last Witch Hunter is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images.

Violence: Many violent conflicts involving swords, knives and guns, although there are few blood effects. In a couple of scenes we see a fantastical female human being stabbed and attacked by men who pull out her beating heart. A character’s hand is impaled by a knife. Another character is seen with a sword through his leg. Frequent scenes depict grotesque imagery of burnt and rotting corpses. Corpses and live characters are sometimes seen covered in worms and one is shown cooking with the wriggling creatures. A hand is seen dislocating in order to remove a handcuff. Vines from a plant pull characters into the ground.

Sexual Content:

A man speaks to a female flight attendant on an airplane: In the next scene we see her leaving his apartment implying she slept with him during the night.

Language: Infrequent profanities include scatological slang and mild profanities.

Alcohol / Drug Use: A character inhales an unknown substance through a water pipe: when she exhales into another character’s face it has hallucinatory affects.

Cast and Crew

The Last Witch Hunter is directed by Breck Eisner and stars Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.

From the Studio:
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
