Sex & Nudity


In a club women are shown topless but they are not dwelled upon, and with the addition of the women being out of focus, the nudity is semi brief.

Violence & Gore


A man is seen partly covered in blood with bruises and cuts after being beaten with a baseball bat presumably.

A man has his head bashed against a wall a few times and he's then kicked once in the face (blood on his nose is seen for a split-second). His head is then repeatedly stomped on offscreen. For one second, we see a foot covering his split-open and blood-splattered face. The attacker's jacket is partly covered with blood and remains that way for the rest of the film.

A man is shot in the side of the neck. He covers the wound and blood leaks from under his hand. He is then shot a few times in the back with bloody exit wounds in his chest (all seen from a distance).

A man has a fork stabbed into his eyeball. He is then stabbed three times in the throat with a large kitchen knife. Blood spurts and sprays out of the punctured flesh. We hear blood pouring onto the floor.

A man is punched a few times in the face. He then is impaled through the throat with a curtain rod. Blood cascades down his white shirt. Blood is seen sprayed out of his mouth onto the walls and attacker's face. Scene lasts for a few seconds.

A man is shot in the chest with a shotgun off screen. We briefly see his dead body with blood sprayed on the camera lens. Some blood is on a nearby mattress.

A man is seen stabbed in the chest from a distance leaving a bloody wound. His jacket, shirt, and shoes become partly soaked with blood.

A woman has her scalp torn off and head ripped apart in slow motion by a shotgun blast. Blood and chunks of gore splatter on the wall in front of her.

A man is seen stabbed in the throat from a distance. We see him with a blood soaked jacket.

A man's arm is grazed by a shotgun blast leaving a bloody wound.

Bits of bloody shrapnel are picked out of a man's arm.

A man's hand is smashed a few times with a hammer. His mouth is then pried open with the hammer and a bullet is shoved into his mouth.

A man's forearm is sliced from elbow to wrist with a switchblade. Blood squirts out briefly. He then lies with a pool of blood around his body.

A man drives into another car knocking it off a ledge. The passenger emerges fairly bloodied. We then see him from a distance getting chased to an ocean and held under water.



24 uses of 'fuck', 7 of 'shit', 4 of 'ass', 2 of 'p-ssy' (used rather non-offensively), 2 of 'kike', 1 of 'whorehouse', 1 of 'chink', and 1 of the middle finger.

A man offers another man Benzedrine and nicotine and a couple of other drugs to help him stay awake.

People drink beer at a party.

A man is seen holding a glass of champagne.

A man smokes cigarettes in several scenes.

A man smokes a cigarette and another man yells at him to put it out.

A woman smokes.

The eye-forking and elevator scenes are rather shocking.

The stabbing near the end (though not as graphic) is of similar intensity level.

Ambient music plays throughout the film, which can first hypnotize the viewer and then scare them to the edge of their seats.

The first 30 minutes are very tame compared to the rest of the film, the second half of which is intense.
