DEBUG is a science fiction horror feature about a group of young computer hackers who are sent to shut down the systems on a derelict space freighter that has been taken over by a malicious artificial intelligence.


The film contains moments of strong bloody violence, including punches being delivered by a character who has embedded shards of glass in the back of his hand. The blows produce blood spurts, and there are also strong gory images in the aftermath of a character being cut in half by a set of sliding doors.

The film also contains one use of strong language ('f**k'), moderate threat, and a scene of implied sexual activity.
