Rating & Content Info
Why is Split rated PG-13? Split is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for disturbing thematic content and behavior, violence and some language.
Violence: While this movie only includes a brief depiction of explicit violence, the theme centers on three teen girls who are in constant peril and under threat of the unknown intentions of a mentally unstable male captor. There are depictions of non-graphic violence including forced confinement involving pushing, restraining and threats. A character shoots a shotgun twice at close range at another character. A child aims a rifle at an adult. A teen girl is threatened with a knife which is pressed into her bare abdomen. Comments allude to cannibalism and a brief gory and graphic depiction of this activity is seen. Characters abusive pasts (as children) are depicted in flashback. A man invites a child to play a hide and seek game, he is dressed only in underwear and commands the young girl to remove her clothes. A young boy is seen hiding from his mother who is threatening physical consequences. In an unseen depiction, a man is physically subdued and his car is stolen. Teen girls are drugged by an aerosol spray. After being attacked by a male, a teen girl has a large wound on her leg. A male kills an elderly woman by holding her tightly until we hear the breaking of bones.
Sexual Content: A male captor orders teen girls to remove certain parts of their clothing; one girl is seen in a bra while the other is in tiny underpants. During a visit with a psychiatrist, this same male captor is identified as one who enjoys “watching teen girls dance naked.” Another discussion with a psychiatrist refers to a time when this male was sexually interfered with by other teen girls. An adult male is seen only in boxer shorts and attempts to lure a young girl into playing a naked hide and seek game. A teen girl briefly kisses an adult male.
Profanity: A partial use of the sexual expletive is heard. Other infrequent profanities include two scatological terms and a Christian expletive. A crude sexual term is used as a non-sexual expletive.
Alcohol / Drug Use: A man uses an aerosol spray to render victims comatose. Brief alcohol use depicted.
