Note: The following text may contain spoilers

A SINGLE SHOT is thriller about a man who gets caught up in the dangerous fall-out of a tragic hunting accident.

Violence

Strong bloody violence includes gory sight of a man's finger being cut off, and another man bleeding out after his throat is slit.

Language

There are over 30 uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as various uses of milder terms, including ‘dick', 'sonofabitch' and 'shit'.

Sex

Sex is implied by the sounds of orgasmic moaning coming from a TV, with brief sight of a woman about to have her bare buttocks whipped in a sadomasochistic context. A couple have sex standing up in the dark with thrusting movements, but there is no strong detail.

Nudity

Breast and buttock nudity is visible in a sexually charged scene.

Drugs

A couple of women smoke a joint before having sex.

The film also contains moderate threat, sex references, and sight of a dead deer being gutted and cut up for meat.
