A woman gets undressed (no nudity is shown). A woman is shown dressing, her breasts are slightly visible through a transparent bra.

The antagonists have ongoing conversations about sexual attraction and activity.

A woman is forced to strip her clothes in front of her husband and young son.


A man is shot in the stomach in a very graphic manner (lots of blood splatter).

A few off-screen shootings with only the gun shot being heard. Dead bodies of a man and boy are shown.

A man is struck in the knee cap with a golf club. The same man gets jabbed in the leg later on and you see blood around his kneecap.

We hear a dog being killed off-screen, probably with a gold club. A character is later forced to play a "Hot,Cold" searching game to find its dead body.

A bound and gagged woman is thrown overboard into a lake to die.

A young boy is tormented by having a pillowcase placed over his head. Not violent, just terrifying.

A woman is shown in long extended sequences bound and gagged. She is also bloody bruised, same to her husband.

A girl is shown dead and it is implied that the main psycho's killed her.

Lots of threats.

Not much is shown though, so there are no explicit scenes other than the gun scene. Although, the emotional stress that the main characters go through, is very disturbing and intense.


Some strong.

A short segment involves one of the antagonists claiming that his partner in crime fucks his own mother.


Drug addicts are mentioned.

Some beer is shown.


The film is extremely intense, though most viewers will know what they are getting into.

The whole film deals with cruel characters who delight in inflicting psychological torture on their victims, as well as seeing no problem with violence and killing people.

Some crying scenes and nervous breakdowns are very sad and can give off a very unsettling feeling.

Constant threats, bullying, torment and violent behaviour throughout.

Total: 34/50

BBFC - (18): sustained sadistic terrorisation.
