<p>STONEHEARST ASYLUM is a period thriller about a young doctor who takes a post at a remote asylum with hopes of helping a beautiful inmate.</p><dl><dt>Violence</dt><dd><p>There are occasional scenes of strong violence, including some flashbacks to a military hospital in which bloodied severed limbs are lying around. Several men are also shot, with blood spurts from the bullet impacts. One man is electrocuted and catches fire. Other characters in the asylum are subjected to treatments including electroshock therapy.</p></dd></dl><p>Other issues include infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Mild bad language includes 'bloody' and 'damn'.</p><p>There are some moderate sex references, including comments about women being hysterics with their 'trigger point' found on their breasts, between their legs or on their ovaries. There are also references to 'pelvic massage' being used as a cure and how some patients are chronic 'masturbators'. One man uses a crude gesture with his fingers to mime penetration.</p><p>There are some drug references when doctors discuss using heroin and opium to sedate patients.</p>
