Sex & Nudity

6/10 Several women at a club are shown bare breasted and wearing thongs that reveal buttocks.

Violence & Gore

10/10 A man is seen covered in blood with bruises and cuts after being beaten with a baseball bat presumably.

A man has his head bashed against a wall several times and is kicked in the face giving him a bloody nose. His head is then repeatedly stomped on until his face eventually caves in and the skull splits with spraying blood and matter. The attacker's jacket is splattered 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 pours out from under his hand. He is then shot multiple 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 multiple 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 multiple times in the face. He then is impaled through the throat with a curtain rod. Lots of blood cascades down his white shirt. Blood is seen sprayed out of his mouth onto the walls and attacker's face. We hear blood pouring onto the floor.

A man is shot in the chest with a shotgun off screen. We see his dead body with blood sprayed on the camera lens to emphasize the violence. Blood is splashed on a nearby mattress.

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

A man is stabbed in the chest leaving a bloody wound. His jacket, shirt, and shoes become covered with blood.

A man is stabbed in the throat. 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 multiple times with a hammer breaking several fingers. His mouth is then pried open with the hammer and he is force fed a bullet causing him to choke.

A man's forearm is sliced from elbow to wrist with a switchblade. Blood squirts out. He then lies with a large 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.



About 13 f-cks, 7 sh-ts, 4 -sses, 2 p-ssies (used rather non-offensively), 2 k-kes, 1 wh-rehouse, 1 ch-nk, and 1 obscene hand gesture.


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 woman says that a man was beaten up by "drunk kids."

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.


All of the violence is intense, bloody, and always coming out of nowhere.

The eye-forking scene and elevator sequence are shocking and graphic moments in the film.

The stabbing part near the end may also be intense for some viewers.

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

Recommended for mature audiences 17+
