SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN is an adaptation of the classic fairy tale in which an evil Queen sends a huntsman in search of her runaway stepdaughter, Snow White.

Violence

Scenes of moderate violence include stabbings with blades and a scene in which a man is pushed backwards and impaled on the broken shards of a tree. There are also scenes of hand to hand combat, involving undetailed exchanges of blows, and scenes of battle violence with limited blood visible but no obvious sight of wounds or injuries.

Threat

Scenes of moderate threat includes a scene in which a character becomes lost in a wood and starts to hallucinate that various frightening creatures are surrounding her and that the trees are coming to life. Characters are also threatened by large fantastical creatures and are put in danger when flaming arrows are fired into a village made of wooden houses.

The film also contains a brief moment of natural nudity as the Queen sits with her bare back visible. It also includes an oblique reference to drugs as a character comments that it was the 'mushrooms' rather than the drink that has put him in a good mood.
