BEAST is a British mystery thriller in which a woman from a small town is attracted to a mysterious outsider.

Injury detail

Following a car crash, a man is seriously injured, with clear sight of an open wound on his elbow and some further bloody detail on his back. Some crime scene images show a dead woman's body half-buried in mud, including a close-up on her mouth filled with dirt.

Violence

There is some strong violence where a woman dreams that she stabs another woman. In one scene a woman strangles a man. Later, the man puts his hands around her neck and squeezes for a prolonged period before letting her go.

There is also a scene in which an injured rabbit is beaten to death with the butt of a rifle, with sight of the animal bloody and trembling.

Sex

A scene of strong sex takes place in a field at night. There are shots of a woman riding on top of a man and moaning; however there is no sight of nudity.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'shit', 'hell', 'damn' and 'bloody'.
