The protagonist is graphically shown, as a child, being trapped while having to watch his mother have sex. She speaks directly to him during this, and this sort of scene reoccurs. This abuse also appears to be his reason for his violence against other women.

The protagonists mother does a line of presumably cocaine during a sexual encounter that the child aged protagonist watches. This whole experience is clearly traumatic.

The entire film centres around women being stalked and murdered, particularly in sexual contexts. There is no direct sexual assault on screen but women are both extremely distressingly murdered during sex and restrained in sexual ways while they are murdered.

We see flashbacks of the protagonist as a child being subjected to situations within which he has to watch his mother have sex with a number of men. He himself is not sexualised, but he is subjected to sexual situations that traumatise him as a child.

There’s sexual content throughout the movie. I wouldn’t suggest watching this if you have mommy issues.
