The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity


Martin's buttocks are seen twice in the film. The first time is brief, though the second time is extended and the camera more or less lingers on his naked body.

Susan also undresses in one scene, but it is from a distance, and behind a tree, so although it is clear that she is naked, no actual nudity is seen.

Violence & Gore


Martin kills his father with a pair of scissors, but there is no blood. The only blood seen is a small amount shown on his corpse, later.

Martin accidentally cuts his hand with a saw; there is a closeup of the moderately bloody wound.

Joan is killed by a hatchet to the head, but off screen. However, she is shown later with blood and a wound on her forehead.



About 10 uses of "damn" and a couple other mild obscenities.


Social alcohol drinking is shown, as is casual cigarette smoking.

A reference is made to a character being "stoned", but there is no drug use on screen.

A man is obviously drunk.


The film is very dark and intense. Blood, although visible in some scenes, is infrequent. The main character is manipulative and conniving.

TECE: 24/50
