The most severe loss of points in Eyes of the Serpent occurred in Sex/Homosexuality. In particular, copulation, oral sex, revealing attire, nudity, translucent drapings over a nude body, nude dancing to entice, and sexual offerings by a mother to her daughter's boyfriend. Multiple instances of graphic penetration of stabbing weapons into bodies dissolved many of the points in Wanton Violence/Crime. The movie portrayed sorcery and human sacrifice of a daughter by her mother, thus draining many of the 100 initial points in Offense to God. Offensive language and talk of murder of parents evaporated most of the points of Impunity/Hate.(1)

Examples of Drugs/Alcohol were not noted.

The ChildCare Action Project findings for Eyes of the Serpent are as follows.

Eyes of the Serpent CAP Thermometers
In accordance with the comparative baseline data, Eyes of the Serpent was R material in Wanton Violence/Crime and Sex/Homosexuality. It was PG-13 material in Offense to God. The movie was PG material in Impunity/Hate and Murder/Suicide. And oddly enough, Eyes of the Serpent was G material in Drugs/Alcohol. The relative absence of the use of, the abuse of, or the presence drugs and/or alcohol is also an example of another revelation found in the CAP Special Report-0001, "Investigation Area Scoring and Trend."(1)

Below is the table showing the scoring in each of the Investigation Areas plus the Final Score drawn from the actual CAP Report. In addition, the number of examples per hour of unacceptable material in each of the Investigation Areas is provided.

Eyes of the Serpent CAP Scorecard

(1) The use of the three/four letter word vocabulary is incorporated into the Impunity/Hate Investigation Area. The use of God's name in vain with and without the three/four letter word vocabulary is incorporated into the Offense to God Investigation Area.

As noted in CAP Special Report-0001, "Investigation Area Scoring and Trend," Impunity/Hate was the strongest presence in all four movie classifications. I pray you will find time to read Special Report-0001. It has a strong revelation about the entertainment media.
