SAINT MAUD is a horror drama in which a pious young nurse caring for a terminally ill woman becomes convinced she must save the woman’s soul.

Language

The film contains infrequent very strong language ('c**t'). There are also several uses of strong language ('f**k') as well as milder terms.

Violence

There are scenes of strong violence throughout, including a scene in which a woman stabs another several times with a pair of scissors in a frenzied attack. There's also a bloody scene in which a man's chest is collapsed inwards with lots of blood. There are scenes of devotional self-harm, with the protagonist shown burning her hand, putting nails in her shoes and setting fire to herself.

Sex

The sex includes a scene in which a woman straddles a naked man on a bed. She is clothed, but her buttocks are visible as she moves vigorously on top of him. A woman masturbates a man outside a pub, with quite a lot of grunting and moaning.

Disturbing images

The film also contains a scene in which an unknown woman lies dead on a bed with a big knife sticking out of her neck and blood dribbling down onto the floor. Other disturbing scenes include one of almost sexual ecstasy as the protagonist believes she has been visited by God. She is seen writhing about and foaming at the mouth and then is lifted up into the air, her back arched and her hair falling backwards.
