EDGE OF EXTINCTION is a British sci-fi thriller in which a survivor in a post-apocalyptic world is forced to go on a rescue mission.

Violence

Two men torture another man by cutting into his Achilles tendon, with strong gory close-up images. People are stabbed, beaten to death or shot, resulting in sprays and spurts of blood and strong bloody aftermath detail. Other people’s throats are slashed, causing arterial spray. Cannibals carve up dead bodies, resulting in sight of bloody internal organs and severed limbs.

Sexual violence

A woman is captured, imprisoned in chains, threatened and raped. In a flashback sequence, a child finds the bloodied dead body of his mother; it is implied that she was raped and murdered.

There is infrequent use of very strong language (‘c**t), as well as more frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include ‘pussy’, ‘bitch’ and ‘whore’. There are also scenes of sustained threat as people are hunted or attacked by a cannibal gang.
