A woman takes off her nightgown she climbs into bed with her husband and they begin kissing in the dimly lit scene. Not very long.

A man walks through a hidden room, past cages where people are being held and tortured: one man lunges toward him and we see his bloody face and what looks like his tongue being pulled out, another man hangs from hooks in his skin, another man has a very bloody face and mouth and has a chain around his neck, and another man slits his own throat, and blood sprays another man and completely covers him; we hear about bodies of the tortured being found in a lake.

A man loads a shotgun, shoots a woman sleeping in bed (her hair flutters, and blood and matter spray out of her head), and shoots the man sleeping next to her in the back (we see blood soak into his pajama top); we then see a sleeping child shot in the back and then another, and a young girl hides in a closet, the man opens the door, takes aim and fires (we hear the shot and see a flash of light but do not see the girl being hit).

A man with an ax follows a barking dog into a boat shed, the man hears the dog snarling in the dark, the man sees something lunging toward him, he swings the ax several times, blood splatters, and we hear squishing and see a blood-covered dog lying on the floor.

A man has many vivid nightmares: One shows him shooting himself in the head (blood and matter splatter), one shows him discovering a wounded person (we see a lot of blood on a wound on his back) and when the man touches the wounded person he lifts his head and we see a very bloody face and mouth.

A man who is tied up and unconscious imagines many horrific scenes with blood splattering, people being killed in gruesome ways, shooting himself, and blood pouring over him.

A teenage girl goes into a closet, the door closes behind her and will not open; she pulls on the door and yells for help, blood drips from the ceiling light bulb, she hears a voice, she turns and sees the corpse of a young girl with a hole in her forehead: the corpse takes the teenage girl's hand and puts her finger into the hole in her forehead (we hear squishing, see the bloody bullet hole and blood on her hands), the teenage girl screams, paws at the door and we then see her quaking and muttering on a stretcher.

A man sees the corpse of a young girl standing on the foot of his bed (the corpse is grey-tinged with a bullet hole through her forehead) and with a rope around her neck.

A man climbs into a bathtub filled with water, closes his eyes and two arms reach up from under him, grab him and hold him under the water; he struggles, knocks his head and his wife comes in to help him (he has blood on his head).

The corpse of a man (his skin is discolored and his mouth is very bloody) appears behind a young boy (the boy cannot see it) who's trying to wash his hands, and blood begins to drip from the faucet.

A man goes into a closet and we see (he does not) the corpse of a young girl being held to the ceiling by arms coming through the ceiling (the arms are not attached to a body); she flails and one hand covers her mouth.
