Violence & Gore

A man cuts off his fingers with an axe, plenty of blood visible (very intense, but somewhat brief).

In a wood-work area, a man's throat is injured when another man swings his knife at him. The wounds of the injury are not shown.

Some fist fights and brutal punches.


2 "S" words, one "A-hole," and one religious exclamation.
