A man jokes after a plane crash, telling coworkers he wished the youngest men had survived so they (the older men) could have sex with them.

A man tells other men to look for condoms in case they are in the wilderness too long (implying homosexual sex) and the men laugh.

A man says the last sex he had was with a 53-year-old Eskimo prostitute and not very good.

Several men joke that eating some sort of fish will make a person incontinent and impotent.

Several flashback scenes show a man and a woman in bed (their heads and hands wearing wedding rings are shown.)

In one scene, we see the woman half-covered with a blanket and wearing a slip that reveals slight cleavage.

A man walks into a bar and we see several men fighting.

A plane with dozens of passengers crashes. We see people fly around the cabin during turbulence and after it crashes, we see the aftermath. Dead bodies are seen scattered all over.

We see a bloody woman moving. However, we then see that she is dead and she is moving because of a wolf eating her corpse.

A man is attacked suddenly by a wolf. It bites his leg and we see a bloody wound after.

Another man is attacked by a wolf and bit in the chest. Another wolf then attacks him and we see it graphically biting his face. The rest of the group finds his bloody corpse the next day. We see matter strewn throughout the snow and the man is missing fingers and chunks of flesh from his face.

A third man is attacked, although this one isn't as graphic since it is seen from a distance. We do, however, see his body afterward and it is covered in blood.

A wolf attacks a man and is eventually killed with spears. We then see the body skinned and roasting over a fire. The man attacked then proceeds to remove the head and toss it to the rest of the wolves.

A man falls from a rope made out of clothing and falls into a tree. When he hits the ground he is bloody and is seen being attacked and dragged away by the wolves. There is a large bloody trail afterward.

A man falls out of a tree and injures his ankle.

A man being chased by wolves falls into a river and drowns after his foot gets caught between some rocks.

A man prepares to fight the Alpha male. We see him tape small alcohol bottles and a knife to his hands and then smashes the bottles on a rock. Before anything happens, the scene cuts. After the credits we see the man and the wolf laying in the snow. The wolf is still breathing however it's unclear if the man is alive or not.

153 uses of 'fuck', 46 of 'shit', 9 of 'Jesus', 4 of 'asshole', 2 of 'dick', and 1 of 'bitch', 'bitching', 'piece of ass', 'hooker', and 'prick'.

Two bar scenes (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details) show beer bottles and glasses of whiskey sitting on a bar.

And on tables with some men drinking shots of alcohol and women drinking cocktails and beer.

Men in several wilderness scenes drink alcohol from flasks and one man says his friend is Jack Daniels.

A man says that dying beside a beautiful mountain is better than drinking.

A cigarette is smoked in one scene.

The plane crash scene is very intense and many dead bodies are shown afterward.

After the crash, a man succumbs to his injuries and dies. Very graphic and disturbing.

Each attack by the wolves is intense and bloody.

A man drowns. Graphic and upsetting.
