Did we miss something on diversity?

Liked the suspense - plot a bit wild

Strong female lead but lots of awful serial killer stuff, tortured kids etc

Too much violence

Looked up on another review site

This is what they had on the movie. Sex scene in a hotel room shows sides of woman's breasts pressed against the man's chest. No private parts are visible. Woman appears in wet, transparent t-shirt. Nipples visible through wet clothing. There are several scenes with full female nudity and sexual bondage/torture. There are a few scenes in a strip club where naked and partially-clothed female dancers are shown on poles and giving lap dances.

This title has:

Too much sex
