A PERFECT GETAWAY is a horror thriller about two couples on holiday in Hawaii whilst a killer is at large. It was passed '15' for strong violence and gore.

At '15', violence Guidelines state that 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic or sexualised violence is also unlikely to be acceptable'. The strong violence in this film is not generally sadistic and never sexualised. Scenes include a knife stabbed into a woman's thigh before being slowly removed, a man stabbing another man through the hand followed by sight of the deep cut between the man's fingers, a woman stabbing a man in the back of the hand followed by sight of him slowly removing the weapon, a woman viciously stamping on another woman's groin as she lies on the ground and a man being shot in the head by a high-powered rifle which causes blood to spray from the wound. Although these moments are strong, it was not felt that they featured the strongest type of gore, dwelt on the infliction of pain and injury (they often concern themselves with the aftermath of injury) or featured the sadistic elements that would have exceeded the '15' Guidelines.

A PERFECT GETAWAY also contained some hard and soft drug use when a crack pipe is briefly filled and smoked and when joints are smoked, some strong language and sex references.
