oh my god this movie sucks. if you could stomach the first two's kind of wishy washy stance on misogynist writing, this one will feel unbearable. it is absolutely terrible with women. men are violent around women as the only way to express any emotions, women are mutilated to drive any and all points, this movie sucks. women just exist to be dumb and emotional to make men look smart. i miss amanda

Starting around minutes 38 the rapist and detective enter the "feel what I feel room" and there are pictures of clothed but bruised/gagged etc. victims (women). Minutes 42-44 the video tape of the rape is played. Kept my headphones out so I could find the timing but didn't want to experience myself. This is also the rapist death scene and they show more of that but I think the tape plays on thru it. So, if you don't want to miss his death, mute, throw on subtitles, and be ready to skip ahead 15 seconds when the tv pops up. But, also, SPOILER, the rapist gets hacked to pieces so you can also skip without missing anything of major import.

Two parents die in the film. Both rather brutally as well. It might be worth noting that one was an abusive father and the other was a somewhat neglectful father and corrupt cop, but this still may be upsetting to some. There’s also a mother who gets tortured pretty brutally, but does not die.
