Violence: Frequent scenes depict vampire bites with copious amounts of blood. Victims are lured into a home and locked in tiny cubicles. Violence toward vampires includes a decapitation, dismemberment, people run over by vehicles, stabbings, shootings and various other fantastical assaults resulting in startling disintegrations or injuries with explicit blood effects. Dangerous driving causes a car accident. A teen is bullied. A teenaged boy steals a man’s suit jacket and credentials, and pretends to be a reporter.

Sexual Content: A teenaged couple discusses consummating their relationship on a couple of occasions. A boy shows a photo of a bikini-clad girl on a cell phone. A teen male claims to be looking at porn on the Internet. A young man observes a scantily clad woman and later suggests she may be a stripper. An adult male makes crude sexual remarks about a boy’s mother and girlfriend. A man views a television infomercial for breast enhancement products. The script includes some sexual conversations (including crude terms for sex) and a reference to masturbation. Scantily dressed women and a topless man are seen.

Language: Over 30 sexual expletives are used, some within a sexual context. Crude male and female anatomical terms, scatological slang and names of Christian deity are heard.

Drug and Alcohol Use: Adult characters drink alcohol, one to the point of drunkenness. Tobacco use.
