R - Restricted

Restricted - "Admittance restricted to persons 18 years of age and older. Content not suitable for minors. Contains frequent sexual activity, brutal/graphic violence, intense horror and/or other disturbing content."

This is the most heavily restricted category in use by Alberta Film Classification; no one under the age of 18 may be in the theatre under any circumstances.

These films contain the most graphic violence, sexual violence, or other disturbing content that is available to moviegoers.

Films such as Saw 3D (2010), I Spit On Your Grave (2010), Les 7 Jours Du Talion (7 Days) (2010) and Hobo With A Shotgun (2011) represent the range of graphically violent or sexually violent material in this category.

Disturbing content, combined with sexual activity and violence can be found in this category in films such as Antichrist (2009), 3D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy (2011) and Baise Moi (2001).

Films depicting unsimulated sexual activity, whether in live action, such as Shortbus (2006) and Enter The Void (2011), or animation, such as Waltz With Bashir (2008), receive the R classification.

Extreme crude content that can include detailed depictions of bodily functions or crude activities, such as those found in the Jackass films, also receive the R classification.
