There’s a much more controversial Saltburn scene than the bathtub one.

And it goes on for an uncomfortably long time. Sitting in the audience, this moment was one where the crowd was the most collectively shocked – to a much greater extent than the bathtub scene. 

Viewers sat with their jaws ajar, as some expressed disgust while others couldn’t help but laugh (me included).  

I’ve been a film critic for the past 10 years and it was one of the most shocking things I’ve ever seen. 

Former Love Island contestant Cassidy McGill shared her shock over the scene on TikTok. “Thinking about what was most talked about online… why no one thought to mention the grave scene was f**king weird,” she told her followers.  

“Any kind of heads-up to what my eyeballs were about to witness would have been greatly appreciated.”

The commenters agreed with Cassidy’s shock over the lack of online chatter around the grave scene. 

“The grave scene was hands down the most uncomfortable I’ve ever been watching a movie whyyyyyy is no one talking about it,” one user wrote. 

“The bathtub scene was nothing compared to the grave scene,” another added.

And we haven’t even gotten to the period scene yet – what a film.

Saltburn is still screening in cinemas but will be released on Prime Video Australia on December 22, 2023.
