A recent medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution soon finds himself taken with one of his colleagues -- though he has no initial idea of a recent, horrifying staffing change.
|nudity||A male doctor speaks to a group of students in a classroom about a female patient. She is brought into the room. She pleads that she is not "mad". The man says she will have an episode if her breasts, thighs, or ovaries are touched. She says, "Don't touch me" as he moves towards her. Then she has the episode of her body tensing up. A man is infatuated with a woman. It is said that a woman harmed her husband when defending herself from his sexual desires. Sexual comments and jokes. A female patient talks about her and the other patients being tortured, stripped, and intimately examined by the staff. A mentally ill man forcibly kisses a mentally ill girl. She then kisses him. Then he strangles her to death.|
|violence||We see a dead frog electrocuted, in the form of a doctor's experiment. A man falls from a cliff. A man falls, dead, from a horse. He is examined and found to have been stabbed. A patient attempts to strangle a doctor, lifting him from his feet and slamming him against a wall. Scenes of 'Medical Procedures' that would now been more likely thought of as torture ie: Hosing, Electroshock treatment, waterboarding etc. A man is hit with a bottle and then punched. A man is shot. There is then a fight between two men that last around 2 mins. A man is set on fire and burns to death. In flashbacks we see amputated limbs in a tub. We also see a man walking though a battlefield medical tent, shooting injured soldiers in the head.|
|profanity||Near the beginning a character using a (bad) IRISH accent says the word Feck. This is a common Irish word to use in place of saying F*** and is not seen as a particularly strong word.|
|alcohol||Few characters are seen smoking and/or drinking|
|frightening||Use of electroshock therapy a couple of scenes may be disturbing to some viewers. Mild gore in flashback sequences. Images of insane patients may be frightening. Very intense throughout.|
