PULP FICTION is a 1994 crime drama about the intertwining lives of a group of characters involved in criminal activities.

Drugs

There is a scene in which a man prepares and injects heroin. In a later scene, a woman mistakes the man's heroin for cocaine and snorts it. She collapses and almost dies, before being revived with an adrenaline shot to the heart. There are also scenes in which a woman snorts lines of cocaine.

Violence

There is a scene in which a man is gagged and raped by another man. The scene contains brief sight of a man thrusting into the victim, although most of the rape occurs offscreen. Other violent scenes include men being shot with blood spurts. There is a scene in which a man is accidentally shot in the head, resulting in blood and brain matter spraying over two other men.

There is frequent strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker') and some unendorsed discriminatory language. The film also contains some strong sex references.
