Sex & Nudity

  • Very little.
  • A man films an unknown woman and follows her to a house. She begins to undress. No sex or nudity is shown but it is implied that she is a prostitute.
  • Milly (Pamela Green) plays the part of a topless model. There are references to her topless photos but we never see any when she's topless in any way. There are scenes in the studio where the photos are taken but again we never her topless. The 'newsagents' has several pictures of fully naked women dotted around the outside and inside. These are clearly visible but form part of the backdrop and aren't focused upon. A man looks at some photos (clearly pornography of some description, although they aren't shown) and buys them.
  • The protagonist photographs women as a part-time job. One of the women waiting to be photographed stands by a window. She is naked except for a kind of poncho that covers her front although her back and side are completely exposed and focused upon for a few seconds. Milly is photographed in a burlesque outfit.
  • There is one very brief (about 3 seconds) shot where Milly is laying back on a bed with one breast exposed. (This is quite easily not to notice).

Violence & Gore

  • Very little
  • The film is about a serial killer, but we never see any of the killings in any detail. We only see the victims with the fear on their face as the killer approaches them about to kill them. No wounds, no blood, no dead bodies are seen (except one dead body under cover of a blanket as one is taken to the ambulance)

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Very little
  • There's a party where people are seen to be drinking alcohol.
  • Mrs Stephens (Maxine Audley) is seen to drink whisky and is understood to be a bit of an alcoholic. Towards the end of the film, the she can be heard talking while clearly intoxicated.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • It depends what frightens you.
  • As the film is about a serial killer, the movie obviously deals with murder. There are no obviously frightening sequences. There is a lot in the film that has an unsettling effect on many people that watch it. The main concept of the film could understandably be seen as very disturbing to some viewers since it's about a man who takes pictures of womens facial expressions before he murders them
  • Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for disturbing thematic material including violent content, some sexual content, and brief nudity

Violence & Gore

  • At the end, the killer commits suicide. This is the only death we actually see but even this shows no wounds and only a small amount of blood on the weapon.
