NIGHT HUNTER is a crime thriller in which a group of police officers investigate the abductions and murders of young women.


There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'bitch', 'dickhead', 'God', 'shit', 'whore', 'balls', 'crap' and 'slut'. There is also sight of a rude middle finger gesture on a poster.

Threat and horror

There is a sustained sense of threat throughout the film including a scene in which two women are captured alive in body bags. The body bags are doused in petrol and two men throw fire balls at the bags attempting to set them alight. In another scene, an abducted woman is found in a man's basement.

Sexual violence

There are references to sexual violence when a man is questioned about what he did with the women that he abducted. There are also references to a woman who was raped. A man uses a young woman to lure in paedophiles so that he can capture them. In one scene, the man takes the young woman to a room and tells her to remove clothes, but the man is stopped before he can go further with the situation.


A man shoots himself in the head resulting in bloody injury detail, but most of the detail is masked. There is sight of a bloodied body after it's implied that the man has been attacked with a knife.

There are brief images of a woman hanging from a noose and there are references to the woman being suicidal. In one scene, it's implied that a man has been castrated.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
