injury detail

Strong fantastical gore and body horror include prolonged scenes of gruesome supernatural childbirth. After a knife is stabbed through an arm, the arm slowly withdraws so that the knife cuts it vertically in two.

language

There is use of strong language (‘f**k’, ‘motherf**ker). Milder terms include ‘bitch’, ‘dick’, ‘shit’, ‘bugger’, ‘piss’ and ‘bloody’. There is also a use of the discriminatory term ‘gypo’ by an unlikeable person.

sexual violence and sexual threat

There are strong scenes of sexual threat, including one in which a man makes graphic sexual comments to a frightened woman, then holds her down while pressing his clothed body between her legs. In other scenes a woman is stalked by a naked man who attempts to break through a door to reach her.

suicide

Flashbacks to a possible suicide and its gory aftermath feature images of a contorted and bloodied figure with one hand impaled on a railing spike. There are also upsetting scenes in which a person repeatedly threatens to take their own life unless their spouse agrees to stay in the marriage.

threat and horror

There are scenes of strong threat and horror, with infrequent ‘jump scare’ moments, when a woman is menaced and attacked by a series of men.

violence

A man punches his wife during an argument, knocking her down and leaving her nose mildly bloodied. There are infrequent scenes of knife violence.


There are scenes of sexism, including ones in which men make light of male violence against women or engage in victim-blaming behaviour. Discrimination is not condoned. Other issues include non-sexualised full-frontal nudity.
