REGRESSION is a US thriller in which a police detective investigates the case of a man who admits sexual assault during occult rituals, but has no recollection.

Language

Occasional use of strong language ('f**k'). There is also moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'bitch', 'bullshit', 'crap', 'pissed off' and 'shit'.

Threat

Scenes of strong threat include portrayals of occult rituals and scenes in which characters are confronted and surrounded by sinister figures with white faces and black hooded cassocks. In one scene it is implied that a baby is stabbed to death during the course of a sacrifice.

Sex

In one scene a female character straddles and 'rides' a male character who is lying on his back. The scene includes female buttock and breast nudity.

Violence

There are several relatively undetailed references to rape and sexual abuse, including child sexual abuse, all of which have an occult context. One scene includes out-of-focus flashback footage of a man and a young woman struggling on a bed as the man admits tying the woman's hands to a headboard with black rope. There is also moderate violence in a fight scene that includes an exchange of crunchy punches.
