  • A girl takes her top off. A man then forcefully ties her up as she protests, breasts are visible.
  • The film contains moderate sexual activity when a strange man creeps up to woman's bed and starts caressing her thigh. Soon he begins thrusting between her legs. The scene does not include any sexualised nudity or sight of genitalia or breasts. In another scene, a female character appears to receive oral sex from a man, as he slides downwards under a table in front of woman. Her facial expressions imply that man may be giving her oral sex.

Violence & Gore

  • A girl is hit across the head with a flashlight.
  • A girl is stabbed to death, mostly off screen, but we see blood come out of her mouth.

  • This one is alot more downbeat and depressing than the TV series. As it tells the story of how Laura Palmer being killed.
  • A steel rod suddenly busts a television.
  • A girl finds that there is a man hiding in her bedroom.
  • A girl's face suddenly turns ghastly.
