Closet Land Parent guide
MPAA Reason
Rated R for psychological torture.

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
Several sexual references, taunts, and descriptions including a disturbing recount of child rape. A man puts his hand on a woman's knee suggestively(brief). A brief flashback to a man and woman in bed(no nudity). After being knocked out, a woman awakens to find herself in a black bra and panties and garish makeup. A woman is forcibly kissed once by an interrogator.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
A lot of verbal and psychological violence such as threats, implied sleep deprivation, descriptions of violent acts, and cruel mind games. A woman is manhandled by her interrogator and struggles as a result a few times. One time he pins to her chair to her to check to see if she is menstruating(no nudity). While a woman is blindfolded an interrogator verbally pretends to be torturing another man(he plays both roles) by sticking a hot poker rectally into the man, pulling out his nails(described quite graphically), and beating him(he is actually striking floors, walls, and objects with a truncheon) to terrify the woman into complying with his demands. A woman kicks a man in the crotch hard temporarily incapacitating him. A woman is forcibly handcuffed and forcibly blindfolded several times and once she is given an injection of sedatives. A woman is tricked into drinking urine from a bottle. A man is seen heating up a hot poker. The scene goes dark and the woman screams implying that the hot poker was inserted rectally. We see a woman on a table with electrodes going up her hospital gown(implying that the electrodes are in her vagina). She is asked a few questions and is shocked a few times. The scene is disturbing. We see the image of a gun put to a woman's head briefly and in a dark scene. A man pulls out some pliers that seem to have a spot of blood on them and acts as though his is going to pull a woman's toenails out. He doesn't go through with it. A man vomits briefly but we don't see the actual vomit. A woman is struck several times(once heard more than seen and once briefly and subtlely with a truncheon). One time is with both of a man's hands which results in ringing in her ears and another time is with a fist while she is drinking water(we hear the glass breaking) which knocks her out cold. When a woman believes that a man is about to put a lit cigarette out in her eye, she puts her hand up and is burned on the palm as a result(happens quickly and we don't see the burn). It is implied at the end of the film that a woman is walking down a hall to her execution.

Profanity Reason
2 uses of f**k(both sexual), 1 use of s**t, 2 uses of ass, 8 uses of whore, 2 uses of hell, and 1 use of suck my d**k. In a flashback, a child rapist is heard(but not seen) calling his victim a "little creep" twice. Considering that he is using the insult to debase her and make her feel like she is at fault, it qualifies in my book as crude and disgusting language.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
A woman drinks some rum-laced broth. A man smokes a cigarette once.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The entire film is filled with psychological and physical torture of various sorts and while the film isn't particularly well done it is quite disturbing and unpleasant. The verbal recount of a child's rape is very disturbing. Some scary cartoon images that will bother children who shouldn't be watching a film like this anyway.
