Violence & Gore

  • A fight between two characters ends with one character getting hit by a vehicle.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The woman who we assume to be Julia is revealed to be wearing a mask after she is shot; a man slowly rips the duck tape off of her mouth and it appears her face is being ripped off until we see the woman's real face underneath. May be shocking at first.
  • Some may find the scene where Lindsey is killed by the explosive charge in her head to be disturbing and upsetting, since the death is very sudden and it leaves her face somewhat disfigured.
