THE RESIDENT is a US horror film in which a young mother suspects that the sublet apartment into which she has moved with her partner and baby is haunted.
Scenes of strong bloody violence include arterial blood spurts when a male character is stabbed in the neck with a knitting needle and when a female character cuts her own throat with a razor blade.
In the single scene of strong sex a woman straddles a man's lap and 'rides' him as he sits on the arm of a sofa. Both characters appear to be naked and there is partial female breast nudity.
Other issues include infrequent strong language ('f**k'), moderate to strong threat, and moderate sex references.
