Sex & Nudity

  • A man says a crude joke. "Who has two thumbs and loves blowjobs? Me."
  • A teenage girl tries to seduce a man by crossing her legs and pulling up her skirt to reveal her lower thighs. However, he does not buy into it.
  • Crime scene photos show the female murder victim topless. Later, her nude body is shown briefly on an autopsy table. Incredibly brief.

Violence & Gore

  • A man retrieves a slug from a gun by firing it into an already dead dog and digging the bullet out with his penknife. We briefly see a bloody hole, and the sound adds to the effect.
  • One character is knocked unconscious. Another is brutally beaten.
  • A man falls into a river and the water turns red as he sinks due to a bullet wound, this scene is eerie.

Profanity

  • 4 uses of pr*ck
  • Around 20 uses of the f-word, 15 of the s-word, and 10 or so other profanities. One obscene hand gesture.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Two teens smoke. The cops have a round of drinks at the bar after "solving" the murder.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A driver threatens the teenage passenger's life by swerving in front of a semi-truck and waiting until the last second to veer away.
  • An exhausted driver begins to fall asleep at the wheel and jolts awake when they see a truck coming towards them, swerving the vehicle and skidding a long distance on the rainy road. Nobody is injured.
  • The scene in the fog with the killer could be intense.
  • Some suspenseful scenes.
  • The finale of the film is very intense.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Extreme close-up shots linger on the victim's bruised and battered body. Quick flashbacks, some almost subliminal in length, show her being beaten and her corpse cleaned by Finch.
  • A man accidentally shoots another man. He dies from his wound. There is a trickle of blood down his cheek.
  • A man has flashbacks of the accidental shooting, blood is seen spurting briefly.
  • The final scene is built up with intensity. Two men have a brutal fight including choking and smashing each others heads off objects. A man grabs a shotgun but is shot by another man. A large visible blood spray and blood mist is seen. He then shoots the first man in the stomach. Some blood, but no wound is explicitly shown.
