MARSHLAND is a Spanish crime drama about a pair of detectives who are sent to a remote community to investigate the disappearance of some teenage girls.

Language

There is occasional strong language ('motherf**ker' and 'f**k').

Violence

Strong violence includes a man being shot, with a spurt of blood from the bullet impact. A man is also stabbed repeatedly and blood dribbles onto his shoes as he dies.

Injury detail

There is visible injury detail on the corpses of two young women, including stab wounds to their naked bodies, a burnt hand and a hand missing several fingers. There is also sight of a severed foot in a crime scene photo.

Sex

There are strong verbal references to torture and sexual violence as a policeman explains that women were tortured with knives and pliers and had their nipples cut off. The policeman also says that the women were 'forced from behind' and that their attackers 'stuck something in their ass and vagina until they bled'.

There is also some breast nudity as the bodies of the women are discovered naked. The women are also seen in photos with their breasts exposed as they sit on beds accompanied by men.

Other issues include some drug references as the discovery and sale of heroin is discussed.
