Note: The following text may contain spoilers

A TOUCH OF EVIL is a 1958 US drama about a Mexican narcotics official.

Drugs

There are a number of visual and verbal references to drug use, including sight of a joint being picked up, sight of an apparently drugged woman, and verbal descriptions of mainlining heroin.

Violence

There are some scenes of moderate violence, including sight of people engulfed in flames in a car after a bomb is detonated, and a man being shot, resulting in some sight of blood. There is also a scene of strangulation.

In one scene, men enter a room and grab a woman. It is implied the woman is going to be sexually assaulted, although the scene cuts away.

There is some very mild bad language (eg hell, damn').
