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

In the opening sequence, a woman puts a revolver in her mouth and briefly mimics oral sex on it.

Full frontal and rear nudity from both main actors on several occasions. Several intense sex scenes throughout with many close-ups.

Bruce kisses Jane and she takes off her clothes and becomes fully naked. Her buttocks and breasts are visible. Then they jump in a pool and she takes off his shorts and his penis is visible. They proceed to kiss each other under water. Later Bruce kisses her breasts and vagina (pubic hairs clearly visible) under water.

Dr. Capa and Rose make love in a shower with Rose facing the audience and having her breasts massaged. She turns to face him and he slides his hands down her back. Bill enters her again and they move in rhythm until their climax.

A young man claims to have a gender identity crisis. Later, it's revealed that he is a woman in disguise.

At the end of the film, the main female character is revealed to have assumed the role of her younger brother, who committed suicide four years earlier. She also reveals a past of physical and sexual abuse from her older brother.

One of the patients in the film had been sexually molested at a young age, as had his older brother. Another patient is a sado-masochist and creates nude paintings in his spare time.

Two women kiss and caress each other in a couple of scenes.

From a distance we see a woman's butt on a helicopter.

Violence & Gore

A man has his hands nailed to a wall using a nail gun.

A man is stabbed repeatedly in his office, and gets impaled in a broken window. This is very graphic and intense.

A man is strangled by an unseen assailant. He is later seen hanging from a conveyor belt and it's evident that he has bled to death. Sudden and startling.

A man attacks a couple with a nail gun.

A woman has been beaten almost to a bloody pulp (there are bloody wounds all over her back and neck), and her hands are literally nailed to a table.

In the final scene, the lead female character attacks the killer with a nail gun. He comes after her, and she drives one more nail through his forehead, killing him instantly.

The film opens with a suicide: a woman jumps off a building. Disturbing, she is shown lying in pool of blood. This scene is crucial to the film's plot as it explains how the main character (the woman's shrink) lost his color vision - he cannot see red for the majority of the film.

Profanity

Language is present throughout the film. A man calls a woman a 'promiscuous cunt'.

This film is VERY sexual. It contain lots of conversation about sex, references to homosexual sex, masturbation, promiscuity, lesbianism, etc. "Fuck" is used several times as result.

Some of the characters smoke. One character admits to having used illicit drugs in the past.

The murder scenes are all very intense with an eerie build up feeling.

The twist at the end (listed under Sex & Nudity) may shock some.

Complete adult movie.

Disturbing revelations and bizarre and sometimes violent outbursts among patients at a weekly therapy group.
