A man takes a woman into his office where glamour images are pinned to a wall; he makes sleazy comments and is sexually threatening. In another scene, a woman is with a man who believes he has control of her and tells her to remove her clothes. There is also brief sexual harassment as a man furtively touches a woman's skirt in a crowded lift.
There is strong supernatural threat, including the possession of a woman whose body is made to convulse and contort grotesquely, and who hurls herself through a window whilst under the same influence.
There are verbal and visual references to child sexual abuse; some scenes feature brief establishment only of the abuse.
Strong violence includes the undetailed gouging of a character's eyes, stabbings with scissors and a syringe, strangling and punching. Some of the violence is carried out by a woman on herself, including the scoring of a word in her stomach, but this is under the influence of supernatural possession. The supernatural entity commits violent acts of its own, including setting a man on fire. There is bloody injury detail in the aftermath of violent events.
There is brief sexualised nudity in glamour images on a wall. There are infrequent mild sex references.
