|frightening||The film features gigantic monsters, which are transformed from humans due to a botched experiment. These humanoid monsters seek out the 'peculiar children' to consume their eyeballs as a way to reverse their transformation. Various depictions of horror in the film can be seen as more realistic and intense towards young viewers. Some of the scenes where the monsters take out the eyes of their victims could be frightening. One of the stronger scenes depicts a huge monster attacking a man from behind. It then plunges its tentacles into the man's eye sockets, plucking out his eyeballs, before devouring them. Other frightening scenes include one that features black-and-white photographs of people with hollowed-out eye sockets, as well as some scenes where scary-looking puppets made up of animal parts come alive to battle each other, with the winner brandishing the loser's heart. There are also some intense sequences in the film, such as when a gigantic monster goes after the children in the home, and another when skeletons are brought to life to help battle the monsters.|
