Small-scale revenge Western is entertaining but violent.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that In a Valley of Violence is a Western by cult horror director Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers). Its entire plot centers on an act of cruel violence that's followed by bloody revenge. As a result, there aren't any real takeaways outside of: Don't mess with a man's dog. Expect lots of gun violence, gory/bloody killings, and dead bodies. A dog is harmed, and a man kicks and shoves women. There's also fighting, beating, and a scary war-related flashback/nightmare. Language is occasionally quite strong, with sporadic uses of "f--k," "c---sucker," "s--t," "ass," and more; there's also some fat-shaming and racial/cultural stereotyping. A minor character is portrayed as a drunk, and other characters occasionally drink whiskey and/or smoke cigars. Men are seen bathing, with nothing sensitive shown, and there's an attempted kiss and some cuddling between two characters.
