    I believe the phrase you mean is; The following picture may be extremely graphic and disturbing.


    In this sense graphic refers to detail. The following picture may be extremely diturbing in great detail.


    I hope this helps.

    If the film/TV show was made in the US, then "graphic" means that there are either very explicit scenes depicting violence (there might be murders or rapes portrayed onscreen in very bloody, disgusting detail) or sex (scenes showing everything short of actual intercourse). "Graphic" means shown onscreen in detail, perhaps to the extent that the average viewer is not used to seeing.
