TUSK is a US comedy horror about a man who travels to a remote part of Canada, where he falls prey to a psychopath.

Violence

There are several scenes of gore and horror, including a man cutting his own leg off with a samurai sword, resulting in a large blood spurt from the wound. Another man is seen to have a bloody sewn-up stump where his own leg has been removed; he is later seen with further bloodied surgical scars after he has been 'transformed' into a mutant. A man is killed by repeated blows to the chest with a sharp implement, with sight of blood spurting into the air but no clear injury detail.

There are crude verbal references to a man being sexually abused as a child.

Sex

There are strong references to sexual activity, including masturbation, and a scene of implied oral sex in which a man moans with pleasure.

Language

There are multiple uses of strong language ('f**k'), plus uses of moderate and mild bad language, including 'shit', 'bastard' and 'wanker'.
