Near the beginning of the film, we hear a husband walking towards his wife off screen, who then says 'no'. Implying he has sex with her without her consent.

Towards the end, you can see nudity through Christine's nightgown, but it is barely visible.

A man is drowned. There is talk of murder and death throughout the whole film. A man's dead body is shown in a bath tub; this is disturbing and hard to look at.

There is no gore in this film.

A woman dies of heart failure. This scene is very intense and disturbing.

A few uses of "b*tches" (all in one sentence). One use of the F-word by children in the English subtitles.

A man is drugged, people drink in civilized manners. One drunk man is shown and the characters discuss that he is drunk.

The whole film is suspenseful to a degree. The last fifteen minutes of the film are extremely intense and frightening. Some images and concepts could be frightening, and the film may induce nightmares.

Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for disturbing thematic material including some unsettling images and some language
