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

Sex & Nudity

  • The picture of Riley flashing the camera is stolen from Sean. The picture is later circulated throughout Riley's class as a means of Cale's revenge against Sean.

Violence & Gore

  • Towards the end of the movie, it is revealed Cale tried to break a colt (young horse) to impress the horse trainer he had a crush on. The flashbacks throughout the movie show that he ended up killing the horse because he could not train it. It is also revealed he killed the trainer because she threatens to reveal the killing. The FBI agent says "he now trains people," which makes the bondage/torture scenes make more sense.
  • A woman is shot in the head from a distance and falls into a pit. Her placement prior to the shot is strategic for Cale, as he previously filled a pit with lye. However, she does not die and escapes from the pit.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Katie (who's name we don't find out until close to the end) is shot and falls into a pit filled with lye. As she tries to climb out of the pit, she loosens the dirt. As the dirt falls, the bodies of Cale's previous victims are revealed.
