Sex & Nudity
- A man watches a woman through an apartment window as she undresses (her bare back is visible) and puts on a robe; she then removes the robe in front of another man in preparation for a massage (we see her bare buttocks).
- A man arrives at a woman's apartment as she lies on a table, nude, being massaged by another man (we see her bare back, the side of her bare breast, and her buttocks are covered by a towel); they talk, the man kisses her, and he leaves.
Violence & Gore
- A man opens a car door and another man's corpse falls out (we see a lot of blood on his nose and clothing).
- In a dream sequence, a man enters a dark house and envisions several startling and disturbing images: a large bird flies out of a cabinet and a young girl pulls the eye off of a teddy bear (blood pours); the girl follows the man through several rooms and up a staircase; doors fly open and she appears in front of him (we hear a scream).
- A man shoves another man against a wall in a dark tunnel and holds a knife to his throat, asking for his wallet and coat; the other man complies and leaves; a woman approaches the first man from behind and we hear a groan as he is presumably killed.
- A man forcibly grabs a woman and begins to shout at her, but ceases.
- A man's corpse is shown lying on the floor (we see blood on his nose and hand and a trail of blood on a filing cabinet).
- A woman stabs a man in the back with a knife (we later see some blood on his clothing and hand).
- A woman appears in front of another woman, brandishing a knife with blood on her hand; she chases the woman into a room and the second woman hides behind a locked door; the first woman sticks the knife through the door, nearly stabbing the other woman, and chases her onto a balcony overlooking the ocean; she raises the knife and tells her to jump; the other woman turns away and the woman with the knife falls over the balcony railing; the other woman grabs her hand, but her jacket sleeve rips and she falls, landing on a rock below (we understand she is dead).
- At least 2 anatomical terms, some sexual references, 1 mild obscenity, 2 religious exclamations.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Adult characters smoke cigarettes in several scenes.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- A dream sequence, that includes a "jump moment" of a bird suddenly flying out, a creepy little girl with blank staring eyes, a teddy bear that bleeds, doors that suddenly fly open, and an overall tone that could be considered scary.
- The film has multiple suspenseful moments, where it seems the lead character could be in danger. The lights go out while a man is in a basement. A man follows a woman into a park at night. A knife-wielding killer comes after a character.
