- Several nude women are seen huddled in a group. Most of them are covering their breasts, but some are visible (no nipples)

- A man is seen raping another man who is bound. No nudity is seen.

There are many intense fight scenes with gross cracking, squishing, and tearing sound effects present.

A man ties a rope around another man's neck and runs to the opposite side of the man, snapping his neck. We hear the crack and his body goes limp.

A man cracks another man's skull open by smashing it with a rock several times. We see blood splatter, and eventually the man's brains are exposed. Extremely graphic.

A man slays two men with an axe. He hits a man in the leg, crippling him, then hits him in the neck. Blood sprays and he dies.

A man ties other man to a rock and rips out his intestines (briefly shown). Very graphic.

A man puts a gory decapitated head on a spike.

Many stabbings and throat-slittings.

The violence is shocking, graphic, gory, and always comes out of nowhere

6 uses of "f--k" in one scene.

"Bastard" is used a few times.

Men are at sea for a prolonged time without water and drink salt water causing delusions.

A group of men and a child are given what appears to be a hallucinogenic drug in the form of a drink, and experience strange compulsions including some violence toward one another

- There are a couple of jump-scares due to intense montages with harsh sound effects and frighteningly strange and surreal images.

Images of decomposing corpses and death mask
