Language In Last Night in Soho

There’s a fair bit of swears and concerning language in Last Night in Soho.

Your kids will hear many uses of f@ck, c@nt, d@mn, h@ll, sh!t, b! tch, and more. Multiple uses, so these aren’t just one-off moments.

The main characters are young adults living in London (some for the first time) so they’re definitely stretching some boundaries and their conversations prove it.

Additionally, the language by men toward women in this movie is concerning. Derogatory and predatory terms are used throughout the movie toward women by men.

Sex and Nudity: Is Last Night In SoHo Ok For Kids?

There is a fair amount of sex in the plot, but not much is shown on screen from a nudity standpoint.

One of the main characters is forced into a life of prostitution which you see by her many encounters with men in bars and in her bedroom.

Women are seen in bras and sexy nightwear, but no nudity is seen.

Men take off their clothes and get into bed with women.

There is a montage scene where multiple women are seen in various high-risk and sexual activities, including one woman you see briefly by the back of her head performing oral sex on a man.

The content is clear, even if the direct visuals are brief.

Is Last Night In SoHo Too Scary For Kids? Violence and Gore

Last Night in SoHo is a thriller in the horror genre, so, yes, there is some violence and gore.

The end of the movie is where the violence and blood ramps up and you’ll see various people stabbed with a big knife in bloody ways.

Necks and bellies are slashed with bright red blood coming from the wounds.

While the gore is significant in places, it’s not the overall tone of the movie’s scares. We’re not talking Halloween Kills scare levels for example.

The scares in Last Night In SoHo are found in the faceless, dark ghosts that haunt Ellie throughout the movie. Plenty of mild jump scares to keep you and your teens hopping in your seat!

Trigger warning: there are discussions about self-harm and suicide in the movie. Nothing is shown on screen but a parent’s death is mentioned to have occurred by suicide.

What Ages Can Watch Last Night In SoHo?

Last Night in SoHo is rated R, which means 17 and up or younger with parents’ permission.

What ages can watch Last Night In SoHo?

We think any mature teen in high school could handle this movie, as long as sexual discussions are not taboo in your household. Last Night In SoHo is appropriate for mature ages 14 and up.

The blood and gore are on a more mild end, but the psychological thriller aspect is top rate. This isn’t your average horror film and has a lot of great moments that the teen who likes to be scared will enjoy!
