I think I’m fairly OK with most movies, but I try to avoid excessive gore and sadistic violence (like in Hostel and Saw). Self-harm and mutilation and all that give me nightmares too. Rape and bullying/exploitation of people with mental disorders (like in Dead Man’s Shoes) or general ganging up on a person (like in Dogville) really makes me uncomfortable too, so I try to stay clear of that too. And, whilst I like a good romantic love scene as much as the next teenage girl, sex for sex’s sake – forceful, unromantic and overly revealing sex scenes don’t do it for me either. I’m alright on anything sweary, really; there’s nothing I hear in 18-rated films that I don’t hear in Sixth form, and as for drugs, I can stomach most drug-taking scenes, but particularly degrading scenes – like in Requiem for a Dream – make me shudder.
How about you?
