  • The part where Jennifer gets her foot out of the chains Russel has tied it in is very intense and disturbing. Quite painful to watch her do this. She constantly is attempting to pull her foot out and is screaming in pain. She eventually grabs the bed where her head is towards and literally shifts her already injured foot in ways it shouldn't go. Quite nasty and violent

Sex & Nudity

  • The fake husband ties the main character up and starts kissing her and stocking her despite her cries for him to stop, very intense.

Violence & Gore

  • Overall this is a disturbing movie that 14 plus children should be able to watch. There are deaths but they're more intense than graphic. There was one very graphic scene where two dead decaying bodies are found under a bed, their skin is green and very bloody, it only lasts for about 3 seconds, this is the most graphic scene in the movie.
  • Protagonist's husband's dead body is seen in the boot of a car. The scene is brief but the body is clearly seen.
  • Jennifer's (Brenda Song) parents are found dead in their bed. Very graphic corpses are seen, and could be frightening for some
