Note: The following text may contain spoilers

SNOWTOWN is a drama based on the story of John Bunting, Australia’s most prolific serial killer.

Violence

There is some detail of the aftermath of murders. One of the murders is shown at length and features significant gory detail as the victim is beaten, mutilated and then strangled.

A scene of sexual violence shows a young man overpowering his younger half-brother, and he then rapes him. The scene features no graphic detail but it is relatively sustained.

There is use of very strong language ('c**t'), strong sex references and drug misuse.
