Sex & Nudity

A large flying bug transforms itself into a fairy with female form: the outline of breasts and buttocks are visible. The nipples are clearly shown briefly, though in shadows.

Violence & Gore

A man hits another man in the face with a bottle until his nose becomes a bloody pulp. He then drops him to the ground, and shoots him; blood sprays onto the floor. The victim is quiet throughout the scene.

A man shoots another person twice in the chest or head, he quickly dies.

Someone stabs a villain in the back, and then in the chest, bloody wounds opening up he falls to his knees, and the person pokes the knife into his mouth and slashes his cheek, bloods spray out, (we briefly see a large open wound).

A humanoid creature bites the heads off of two fairies (we see bloody flesh being stretched).

A man is tied to a beam with his wrists are bound, and another man shows him the tools that he will use to torture him, and then strikes him in the face with a hammer but it cuts away right before the impact. We later see the man with a bloodied, blackened hand and bruised/burnt face; a doctor gives him a medicine to put him out of his misery.

A group of soldiers are shot, blood sprays from the impacts.

A gunfight, a few people are shot. We see soldiers shooting dead bodies. One man has been shot in the throat and so can't speak or breath properly; he is killed swiftly by a gunshot through the hand to the head.

A villain is shot through the cheek (we see a bloody hole), he falls down silently.

A man's leg is badly infected from a wound (we see it bloated and blackened) and we see a doctor put a saw to it then it cuts away. The cutting is only seen for a brief second, and no sounds are heard aside from the impact of the saw.

We watch as a man stitches up a large cut through his cheek (we see the needle poke through the flesh and then hear the thread tugging against the flesh).

A girl is shot in the abdomen, she drops to the ground and we see blood seeping from her nose and trickling from her hand.

A woman goes into labor, we hear her screaming, we see some blood-soaked sheets removed from the room.

A frog throws up orange goo (possibly his internal organs, though not bloodied, in a fantacy style) and collapses into frog skin.


4 uses of 'fuck (1 'motherfucker') and 'son of a bitch', 2 of 'shit', and 1 of 'bitch' and 'asshole', as well as 5 instances of 'damn', 2 of 'God', and 1 of 'Jesus'.

It should be noted that the actual Spanish being used is a bit more vulgar/heavier than the English subtitles sometimes suggest.

A man drinks a glass of alcohol that has been laced with a sedative. It causes him to stumble and stagger.

A man drinks alcohol in a few scenes, and men and women drink wine at a dinner.

A man smokes in some scenes.

A doctor gives a man an injection of something that will painlessly kill him.

The Pale Man could be frightening. The Faun's appearance could also frighten.

Implied torture. A character handles torture tools, ready for use.

Some of the violence is intense.

The entire movie has an eerie and dark feel.

15+ (depending on the viewer)
