Infinity Pool is now playing in theaters and it is leaving audiences shook and flabbergasted. If you and the family enjoy a good horror flick, this may seem like the perfect movie to watch. However, the Infinity Pool age rating is a very hard R. Why is the movie rated R? We have all the details for you, below!

The horror picture follows James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman), a couple on a lavish vacation at an island resort. Their good time is cut short when they leave the resort and find a culture of violence and horror beyond what they ever imagined.

My friends, this is not a movie you want to go see with the family, no matter how much you all love horror. It’s a strong R for a reason. In fact, Infinity Pool had to fight for the R rating, because it received an NC-17 label, at first.

The original unedited movie features a scene that shows “Skarsgard’s character ejaculating,” The New York Times reports. It’s the cut of this scene that finally allowed the movie an R rating.

Why is Infinity Pool rated R?

Infinity Pool is rated R for graphic violence, disturbing material, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use, and some language.
