SCHIZOID is a thriller, from 1980, in which a newspaper advice columnist is plagued with threatening anonymous messages at the same time as members of her group therapy session are falling victim to a mystery killer.

Violence

There is strong violence featuring the stabbing and slashing of victims with a large pair of scissors, resulting in bloodshed and images of bloody aftermath injury.

Threat and horror

There is strong threat as the killer stalks the victims who react with fear and desperation.

Sex

A couple have intercourse in a standing position with the man thrusting between the woman's legs.

Nudity

There is breast and buttock nudity in a striptease routine, and when a woman steps into a shower.

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder bad language including uses of 'pissed', 'shit', 'ass', 'goddam' and 'my God'. There is a passing reference to rape as a policeman talks about the gruesome crimes the force is required to investigate.
