This movie deals with the rape of a young woman and her parents getting revenge on the rapists. All scenes pertaining to this are very intense.

During the first car wreck, a man bleeds on a picture of his children and is told that he will never see them again. Some viewers might find this disturbing.

A lot of scenes contain a lot of graphic material and blood (such as removing the bullet wound, stitching up the nose) and will be disturbing to many users (see the Violence & Gore section)

Many of the violent scenes are rather more disturbing and intense, than frightening/scary. Some scary scenes include:

The parents hear a repeated thumping sound outside their home, but it turns out to be a chair moving caused by wind.

A scene or two involving the murderers suddenly appearing in front of the parents.

A mild jump scene caused by a car slamming into another.
