Sex & Nudity

  • 5/10
  • 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

  • 6/10
  • Martin accidentally cuts his hand with a saw; there is a closeup of the moderately bloody wound.

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 3/10
  • 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.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 8/10
  • 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
