XTRO is a science fiction horror in which a man is abducted by aliens and returns to his family three years later.


In one scene a man performs a sexual act on a bare-breasted woman. In another scene, a man thrusts into a woman; during sex, skin peels from his face and body.


There are scenes in which men and women are stalked and attacked by creatures or objects. In one scene, a woman, who has previously been attacked by a creature, gives birth to a fully grown man, with sight of blood spurting from between her legs. There is also bloody detail when a man has a disc thrown at his throat.

There is a scene in which a boy is discovered soaked in blood.

The film also contains infrequent strong language ('f**king'), as well as some milder terms (for example 'bitch', 'shit'; 'bloody', 'hell').
