Sex & Nudity

A man and a woman start to have sex (they stop partway through). Some female nudity is seen; you see her on top of him, thrusting and moaning.

Two boys attempt to rape a girl named Samantha (all three people around 16-18 years old). You see him kissing her rather violently. The rape attempt ends in murder.

There is a scene where Maggie is about to take a bath. She drops a towel around her to step into the bathtub and is shown fully from the rear.

Violence & Gore

Said boys murder Samantha by sticking thin plastic wrapping over her mouth, thus suffocating her to death. Her dead and decaying body is found later.

There is a scene where Tom is hit violently twice with a fireplace poker, and then another character is shot in the chest several times.

A dream sequence shows a young man holding a gun to his head, the camera turns away, there is a gunshot, and when the camera flashes back to him his entire head is covered in blood and he is smearing the blood around on his face. In a flashback scene a character is shown being beaten and thrown around violently. This character hits the ground hard and a bloody tooth is knocked out. Seconds later one of their fingernails is ripped off.


Pervasive (although not that frequent) usage of the F-word. Other milder profanities used quite a bit.

Drinking is seen in numerous scenes in which you sometimes see people who are drunk.

A woman mentions that her and her friend have just smoked marijuana.

Quite a few characters are shown to be smoking, including one who practically lights his next cigarette with the last one.
