MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT is a science fiction feature about a group of US soldiers on their first tour of duty in an unnamed Middle Eastern country. The soldiers must fight against human insurgents, whilst also contending with the threat from extra-terrestrial creatures.

Violence

Soldiers and others are shot, with large sprays of blood. In one scene, a soldier's legs are blown off in an explosion, and there are several shots of his bloody stumps. In another scene, a man who has been shot is left to die slowly, struggling for breath and in a state of distress for some time.

Sex

One strong sex scene shows a naked couple having sex against a wall, with clear breast and buttock nudity and sight of thrusting. There are also some strong verbal sex references as soldiers banter with each other, and sight of a pornographic magazine as one of them reads out an erotic story from it. There is strong sexualised nudity in a scene in which the soldiers have a party with a group of strippers.

Language

Frequent strong language, including 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker', as well as milder terms such as 'prick', 'bitch' and 'shit'.

Further issues include a suggestion of drug use in a party scene, with white powder being chopped into lines on a table, and a scene in which a dog is made to fight a small alien creature.
