Hedy kicks the puppy, Buddy away from her in a scene when Allie isn't home - the dog yelps. She later blames Sam when the dog falls to its death from the balcony outside.

Hedy (suggestively) throws the puppy off the balcony and blames Sam for not properly fixing the gate. The dog is shown on the ground for a few moments outside and it cuts to the next scene. We don't see the dog explicitly fall or die.

Hedy kills Sam by impaling him in the eye with a high-heel, nothing is explicitly shown other than the motion of her hitting him and a few seconds of his reaction.

A suicide note is written that says:

"I don't want to try to be loved anymore.
I don't want to be scared anymore.
I don't want to kill anymore.
I don't want to be alone anymore.
I don't want to ve anything anymore.
I don't need a reason to kill myself.
I need a reason not to.
There isn't one."

There are two sex scenes between Allie and Sam, both are short and have minimal nudity. There is an explicit scene between Hedy and Sam later in the film when she performs a sexual act on him (nothing is shown). A brief shot of Sam’s penis is seen when he leaves the bed.

Minimal. Hedy kills Sam with her high-heel, it’s then found by Allie with the blood still on it. Hedys clothes are shown covered in blood, she washes them in the sink and tells Allie it’s from her period.
