Titles that start with “W”

  • This same woman’s boss comes on to her, although she encourages him.
  • One man in particular has a preference for having sex with underage girls.
  • There are many references to a “game” wherein men expose their penises to their unsuspecting coworkers.
  • Two men take a picture of a couple having sex. I believe that this was not wanted by either of the couple.

  • A rape scene is repeated over and over at the end of the movie.


Wanda, the Wicked Warden / Ilsa – The Wicked Warden (1977)

  • An extremely sick and exploitative movie involving gang and institutional rape.
  • There are several rape scenes in this movie.

  • She escapes them and attempts to seek vengeance from her rapists.


War of the Worlds (PG-13) (2005) (Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning)

  • Although no actual act is seen or directly discussed, there is a scene which so strongly leaves the viewer with the impression of potential child molestation that I believe it qualifies as failing the trigger test.
  • A young girl is sheltering with her father and a deranged man while hiding from the alien invasion. They are all in a dark, dirty basement. The father leaves his daughter alone for a moment. He returns to find his daughter and the deranged man sitting closely together on the stairs, and I believe the man is holding her hand. We cannot make out exactly what he is saying to her, but we hear him murmuring something about how she’s all right, and he’ll take care of her if anything happens to her father. The atmosphere of the scene and father’s protective and angry reaction strongly suggest that the deranged man had pedophile-like desires towards the girl.

  • Women who are survivors of rape form a bond of their shared experiences. They are determined to put an end to rape in all society for good.

  • The entire movie is about a controversial look into the world of incest and sexual abuse that ultimately destroys the fabric of the family.


Warrior Brother (year unknown)

  • There is rape in this movie, but I am unsure whether it is just talked about or shown.


The Watcher (2000)

  • This movie contains no rape, but some may find very intense scenes of a killer waiting inside a woman’s house for the appropriate time to attack her very triggering.

The Weatherman (R) (2005) (Nicolas Cage, Michael Caine)

  • A counselor is giving therapy to a family. No one knows it, but he is a pedophile and wants to have sex with the 15 year old son.

  • Anna, a teenager, drinks, does drugs, and has sex with every guy she meets due to her lack of self esteem.

  • A very offensive movie that includes rape humour.


White Chicks (2004)

  • All the following scenes are played for laughs.
  • A man gives another man a date rape drug for laughs. We see the man who ultimately took the drug dancing shirtless on the dance floor.

The two men on the date rape drug ultimately end up in the same bed together (as a result of having taken the drug) and are horrified when they wake up next to each other.

Wild Cactus (Unrated)(1993)

  • *The entire movie is about a couple that plays mind / sex games with another couple. I had difficulty doing research on this movie, but there may be many triggering scenes… I also know that the sex scenes all seemed to be filmed so as to titillate. Here are the only sexual assault scenes that I know for sure are in this movie.
  • A woman is raped by a man in this movie. After the rape is complete, for some reason she has changed her attitude towards the rapist, and kisses him on the back.

  • She calls the police to press charges, but they tell her that if she does, they will tell her day time boss about her prostitution. So, she cannot press charges as she does not want to lose her job.
  • Another man attempts to rape a man (the same man who committed the rape in the above scene) at gunpoint in an effort to avenge her. I am not certain, but I believe the entire act is seen. The cop is made to put a condom on his would be rapist and then to undress. We hear the new rapist say that what he is about to do is not about sex, but about power.

Without a Paddle (2004)

  • A joke is made in which a man says he ate a brownie once, in a double entendre. Some may find this offensive as Brownies are girls between the age of 7 and 10, so this comment (likely unknowingly) alludes to child sexual abuse.
  • A comment is made that if he and another man are turned in to the police, they will be sent to prison and manhandled.
  • A man voyeuristically watches women bathing and sees one woman’s genitals.


Without Warning – The James Brady Story (1991)

  • The camera imitates Walter’s point of view and focuses on the bodies of some young girls as Walter is behind them on the escalator.
