VISITING HOURS is a horror thriller, from 1982, in which a serial killer stalks a television journalist after he takes exception to views she has expressed on air.

Threat

A woman is subjected to a prolonged assault in which the killer plays a knife up the length of her body, cutting off some of her clothing.

Violence

A number of women are stabbed to death, with some bloody detail and with the killer taking sadistic pleasure in taking photographs of their death throes.

There is a scene of self-inflicted injury as a man rams his arm down onto a bottle, which causes multiple bloody lacerations in his forearm.
