FUNNY GAMES U.S. is a remake by Michael Haneke of his 1997 German film, in which a family are terrorised in their home by two callous youths.

Threat

There is a sustained focus on the terrorisation and humiliation of a family, including a young child, which takes place within a strong sadistic context. The majority of the actual violence is all implied and largely happens off-screen.

There are infrequent uses of strong language ('f**k').
