THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN is a US horror about a young woman who investigates a string of murders from the 1940s, popularised by a 1970s slasher film, after the killer seemingly returns to her home-town.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong bloody violence in which characters are sadistically shot or stabbed by a masked killer.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k').

Threat

A sense of strong threat is maintained throughout, with frequent scenes in which victims are pursued by a killer.

Sex

There are occasional scenes of strong sex, including breast and buttock nudity, implied fellatio, and a man vigorously thrusting into a woman. There are also some strong sex references, including two characters discussing fellatio and mutual masturbation.
