Spoilers

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

Violence & Gore

  • Thinking he is dying, a man holds a knife to his own neck, then slashes his own throat. The impact and blood is not shown in this scene, but the audience is affected by the extremely upset reaction by another character.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A character goes to the basement of an abandoned laundromat to gain control of incriminating evidence. A silhouette is shown sitting motionless in a chair, in the dark. The character turns on her phone's flashlight to reveal a seemingly dead woman with a large spider crawling on her face. The woman gasps - she's still alive, but is clearly in medical distress. She falls out of the chair, then accuses the first character of causing her death.
  • A character tries to keep several investigators from seeing proof (including security footage, footprints, and a piece of building facade) that may incriminate her. It's a worrying scene, but also played for laughs.
  • Ransom grabs a knife and rushes toward Marta to stab her with it, in slow-motion. Several characters rush toward them, also in slow-motion. They fall to the floor, and she seems to be stabbed in the chest, but there is no blood and she's still breathing. Turns out the man had grabbed a prop knife.
  • A woman accuses a man of murder in the dark basement of an abandoned laundromat. He chloroforms her, then stabs her in the neck with a needle, overdosing her with morphine.
  • There are several scenes where a character is afraid her role in someone's death will be discovered. The scenes can be read as intense.
