What Parents Need to Know

Even with its tiny cast, it manages to squeeze in scenes of close-up mutilation and bloody savagery, thanks to murders of both people and a dog. The heroine is forced to wear a revealing, skin-tight dress for most of the movie; there's also some swearing (including "f--k" and "c--t") and an intense sense of peril and helplessness.
