THE CANYONS is a US drama, set in Los Angeles, in which a man is driven to seek bloody revenge when he discovers his girlfriend is having an affair with one of his employees.

Sex

Several strong sex scenes, including some featuring full frontal male and female nudity and group sex.

Violence

There is strong threat as a man advances towards a woman with a knife, then attacks her off-camera. While the violence itself is not shown, there are several images of the woman's corpse afterwards with bloody injuries clearly visible, including a large wound to her neck. There is also a scene of domestic violence as a couple argue about one of them having an affair, with lots of aggressive behaviour and shouting.

Further issues include frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), and some drug use, with the suggestion a man is snorting drugs just out of view.
