A ROOM TO DIE FOR is a British horror feature in which a young couple find the behaviour of their landlords increasingly sinister.

Language

There is very strong language ('c**t') and strong language ('f**k', 'c**ksucker') throughout. Milder terms include 'bitch', 'wanker' and 'arsehole'.

Injury detail

Strong gore includes a dismembered body being put into a bin bag, and close-up detail of a bloody abdomen wound being sewn up.

Violence

There are several stabbings and bloody beatings; some of the attacks are prolonged. There is a scene in which a man is tied to a chair by another man and threatened with a blowtorch. It is then implied that the blowtorch is used to burn the man's genitals.

There are also several scenes of sexual violence in which a woman is kept prisoner and repeatedly raped, with the intention of making her pregnant.

There is a sense of strong threat throughout given that the young couple are obviously in danger. There is also strong sexual activity as a man masturbates under the duvet while watching porn on a laptop.
