A man almost kills himself due to strangling using a necklace with the cross on it no blood is shown but its still quite violent and sinister. A goats throat is slit ( though ofscreen its still obvious what was done) his blood is collected in a challice and drunk. A woman is tied up in a barn with a gag in her mouth she is screaming.

Drinking is occasionally present in the film though this is definetely not a main feature. A few characters casually dirnk at a part when the film has only just begun. A man is seen with a small glass of alcohol sitting in an arm chair.

Satanism and the dark arts is a major theme thorughout the film and could upset or frighten some viwers. The main antagonist kidnaps a girl and intends to kill her assumingly as a sacrifice to the devil, he is stopped from doing this on the last minute. Several of the creatures summoned using black magic thorughout the film may frighten some viwers these include a giant spider the angel of death (basically an armored skeleton on horseback) and a cross between a man and a goat said to be satan himself. A fialry normal looking man is summoned in one scene but his ability to hypnotise people may strike a cord with certain viewers, the main villain also has a smilar power. Live Chickens are seen in a basket its implied that they were meant to be sacrified or used in some sort of black magic. In one scene a group of devil worshippers are dancing wildly a goat's thoart is slit (offscreen but we see blood running down just after someone puts a knife close to his neck) a man then drinks the goats blood. This film could be very frightening and distressing to anyone whose afraid of the concept of devil worship and black magic.
