We see a young woman in bed alone, and something climbs into bed with her and begins to touch her; when she begins to resist, whatever it is covers her with a sheet and she screams; we see her twisting and rolling in a puddle of blood, and when she sits up everything is normal.

We see a man and woman presumably after having sex; we see the woman's bare breasts and buttocks (she wears a thong) and the man is in boxer shorts.

A young woman paints a picture of a nude woman.

There is also a sex scene in where a woman is shown totally nude, you see her bare genitals for a good amount of time.

A woman invites a young man to follow her upstairs, which he does, and when he finally reaches her she turns into a "demon-dog" and begins to tear him apart; we hear him screaming, see him covered in blood, hear sounds of flesh being torn and see him jerking as the creature attacks him.

Another young man enters the room as this is happening and the creature chases him down the hall and vomits maggots all over him.

Two young men walk through an abandoned building, open a door and are attacked by a dog, they run and stop on the front stoop where one is dragged back inside and we hear him struggling and screaming and his blood sprays on the man left outside, who is eventually also dragged back inside and torn to pieces (his nails make bloody scratches on the floor as he is dragged).

A man grabs a man by the throat, slashes his throat and blood pours out of the wound.

A man is stabbed by flying shards of a mirror and is pinned to a wall where a man cuts his head off (we only see the man drag a blade across his throat).

A man slashes two men to death and their blood sprays their silhouettes onto a fence.

A woman sets her dress on fire and we see her engulfed in flames.

A man walks into a puddle of blood, follows it and finds a woman's blood-covered legs dangling out of a garbage can.

Two men hold a man at gunpoint in order to force him to smoke a pipe containing a drug; he smokes it, holds his head and pulls out a switchblade that he uses to slash one of the men, who then shoots him repeatedly (we see his blood covered shirt as he lies on the floor), and then the rest of the people in the room are each forced at gunpoint to stab the man who eventually dies and is dragged out to be buried (we see parts of this scene a few more times).

A man shoves a pipe with drugs in a man's mouth, seals his mouth (he somehow, supernaturally, makes his mouth disappear), hangs him from a hook and stabs him (we see blood spurting onto the disembodied head of another victim who complains about the act).

A young man is grabbed by demons, blood spurts as they tear at him and we hear him screaming.

A young man is grabbed by a demon and he slashes at its arm with a knife cutting himself loose.

A young man stabs a man in the stomach but he is not affected.

A man throws two disembodied heads into a wall swarming with writhing and moaning demons.

A man dips another man through the demon wall a few times before he shoves him in; we see the man slimed and hear him screaming.

A man walks around holding the heads of two of his victims with dangling bloody tissue at the neck; they continue to talk and interact with him.

A man shoots a man several times but it doesn't seem to affect him.

A young woman steps on something that crunches and we see a piece of a bloody human jawbone on the floor.

A man pulls the hand off the remains of a young man, and a young man pulls the finger off a skeleton to get the ring it was wearing.

There are several instances where we see shadows of creatures on the walls of a building, some with claw-like hands; some scenes are of walls covered with writhing malformed demons -- during a couple of these scenes the demons come free from the mass on the walls trailing gooey strings and they reach for people and then disappear.

A young woman vomits maggots.

We see a dog noisily devouring raw meat; somehow the dog is connected to a skeleton, and as the dog eats tissue grows on the skeleton at the same time.

A group of young people follows a dog down a flight of stairs where they are swarmed by flies, and into a basement where the dog digs up a skeleton with a knife in its chest.

A man drags a knife across a pool table and thick blood bubbles up through the slit.

We see a puddle of thick red blood on a floor (it is said that the floor is throbbing) and a group of young people go to investigate and find pipes in the basement leaking more blood.

A group of people have a sance and they remark about an odor, some candles flare up, a woman shakes and a man is covered with blood.
