THE SHADOW MAN is a Canadian horror film in which a young woman is haunted by visions of a sinister figure in a brimmed hat.

Violence

Scenes of strong violence include multiple characters being stabbed with a knife, resulting in gory aftermath detail including sight of a woman with her guts spilling out of her stomach. In one scene a woman's husband attempts to force himself on her before being subdued.

Disturbing images

A woman has a recurring nightmare in which she gives birth to a deformed and bloody baby. She also experiences visions in which other characters have suffered gory injuries.

Drugs

Numerous scenes depict the central character smoking marijuana.

Other issues include brief breast nudity as a woman prepares for a bath and some moderate sex references. There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), alongside milder terms including 'whore', 'shit' and 'asshole'.
