Maybe I saw a different movie(?), but the suspect literally hangs his own dog with a leash. Awful. Cops find that dog’s collar after the suspect disappears.

The film is very psychological. Alex is gaslighted into believing he’s a different person than he is.

Addiction

Although medical and prescribed, the mother of one of the abducted kids takes many sleeping pills and shots of medication bottles.

Also- there is talk of children being drugged throughout the movie, and one adult character is drugged on screen.

Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) very briefly and non-graphically alludes to the fact that he might have been sexually abused as a kid when he threatens a suspect. Very easy to miss. The subject he’s threatening is a pedophile, but this isn’t detailed any further than the suspect being labeled as a pedophile. Holly also briefly and non-graphically mentions that her husband was a pedophile.

SPOILER ALERT!!!



Keller finds his daughter's whistle while he's trapped underground. At the very end of the movie, Det Loki shows up right before the forensic people couldn't find anything and leave the scene right near the spot where Keller is. Loki is about to leave too but he hears a whistle noise and turns back around....he goes to leave again when he hears the noise multiple times. The movie ends there and it's never shown whether or not he finds Keller. It's left up to the viewer.

Towards the end of the movie there is a scene where a character is rushed in a police car to the hospital. There is many tires squealing and honking. No car crash during this scene.

Many scenes with gore, most notably when Bob Taylor shoots himself after gaining control over an officers gun in the interrogation room.
