We see Jennifer swimming innocently in a lake, this scene shows her full frontal.

In three scenes, a nude Jennifer is assaulted by four men and raped. This scene begins with the men stripping off her bikini top, then holding her as they strip off her bikini bottom. This scene show her breasts and genitals.

In the house scene after her rape, Jennifer is wearing only a blouse that is eventually torn open after she is beaten and raped again. The entire time she is beaten, her breasts, buttocks and genitals are explicitly seen. A man rapes her following this beating. The next scene implies a man shoving a bottle inside her. Afterwards, when a man is sent in to kill the woman, she is shown lying on her back with her blouse open. Eventually the camera pans down to her pelvis.

As she takes a shower by herself, Jennifer's left breast is shown for a brief scene.

Jeniffer is naked as she runs between four men. Many images of her genitals and buttocks are shown, a few images of her breasts may be shown but are generally covered up by her long hair. They catch her and hold her face down, she is restrained by her ankles and wrists. One of the men rapes her anally (the rape is carried out with excessive force).

Jennifer seduces one of the men to kill him, and he spends a minute or so on top of her until she kills him. During this scene there is no male nudity but most of the scene the woman's body is partly seen despite wearing a long white dress.

Jennifer spends a few minutes in the bath with a man, with her body shown.


Violent rape scenes.

A woman castrates a man, cutting him open, and locks him in a room so he bleeds to death (no nudity, just blood).

A woman hangs a man after seducing him.

A woman drives over a man with a boat and hits another in the back with an axe. They both die bloody deaths.


Many F-words and sexual dialog.


Some mild alcohol drinking and some scenes where characters smoke cigarettes.


There are three graphic rapes, each of which last some minutes in length. They are actually more graphic than the revenge scenes later.

Total: 40/50.
