Violence and horror

While the film is less about the alien attacks and more about the human behaviour we still see moments of violence and scary scenes. This includes physical fights, explosions and characters getting snatched away by the aliens. There are a lot of jump scares and we see dead bodies and blood splatters on walls, however injuries are not shown in detail. The strongest scenes of violence include

  • A character accidentally bashes another’s head to try and keep him quiet but kills him in the process.
  • Another character is knocked down by a stampede of terrified people.

Offensive language

Offensive language is used throughout the film, including highly offensive words such as f*ck and sh*t.
