The film is heavy when it comes to sexual content/themes.

Many graphic depictions of heavy nudity of both genders.

A woman dressed like a fox is shown. Her breasts are painted in white but yet, they are fully visible (she rubs them).

A few of the shorts feature a focus on sex, including sight of a man masturbating to online pornography, although the pornography he is watching is not seen by the viewer.

One of the films contains a series of close-ups of a man and a woman having sex. The man puts his head between the woman's legs, followed by a suggestion of asphyxiation with a leather belt during sex.

In one of the films it is implied that a young boy is being raped, although there is no sight of this happening.

Two men are encouraged to masturbate over what they are watching, although one of the men simply vomits in disgust at what he sees. There are 2 kids suggested having sex, but this is not seen only with the sounds.


Very extreme violence and gore throughout.

One of the most violent films of 2013. Note: The film required editing in Germany in order to get a release. The segments L, V, X, and Y were omitted.

Many of the subjects feature strong violence and gore.

Examples include: a woman chopping a man's hand in half, resulting in a gaping, bloody wound; a pan of boiling water being poured over a man's head; a samurai chopping off another man's head, with copious blood.

A woman attacks a man in bed with a knife, cleaving his hand in two. She then stabs the knife into his neck, blood is seen gushing from the wounds as the man gags.

A woman hurls hot oil into a man's face, burning him. She then bludgeons him with the frying pan.

A couple is murdered in their home. The woman is seen with her heart completely removed, background light shining through it. The murderer's bloody weapon is shown.

A man strangles his clone with a hose bound in barbed wire. Blood squirts from his neck, and the segment ends with a close up of the puddle of blood.

A man has baby spiders hatch out of his ear.

A surfer drowns himself, shown in the first person. Not graphic, but some may find it disturbing.

In one of the films a small child's head is ripped off, although the violence is shown only in darkened silhouette.

The severed head and the headless corpse are both seen later in the film.

The strongest gore occurs during a film about a woman who carves herself into her ideal shape. We see the woman set about herself with a knife, a razor and an electric carving knife, whittling herself down.

A man is then seen on a bed, being straddled by a woman wielding a chainsaw, who brings the blade down onto him, with huge blood-spurts.

In another film a woman wears a gigantic prosthetic penis. We see ejaculation from the fake penis and then a blade shoots from the tip of the penis. It is implied that the blade penetrates another woman, although nothing is shown other than a spurt of blood and blood on the woman's clothing.

There are plenty of blood-spatters and her raw flesh is covered in blood.

A claymation of a toilet eating a man and a woman. Very bloody, but it can seem mild for those who are not of faint of heart.

A man is killed by a dog.

A man has his head chopped off by a Katana. His head rolls down in a disturbing manner and we see it covered in blood.

A woman shoots three men at the same time in the face. We see their faces getting blown and all the flesh coming out exaggeratedly.

A woman slices a man to pieces with a chainsaw. Heavily disturbing.

A woman shoots robots.

A zombie turns into fire. Very sadistic, but brief.

A fox-prostitute electrocutes a man.

A school-girl's head is turned into fire.

A woman holes her own leg. Gory and bloody.

An animated segment that shows a woman having a broomstick shoved up her anus.

Scenes of a man punching a dog and a kitten being murdered by having its head crushed (offscreen, but still disturbing) may not sit well with some viewers.

In a claymation scene, a young boy's head is crushed by a falling toilet tank, his eyeballs fly out along with his brain.


About 100 uses of ''fuck"

A couple uses of the word "c*nt"

Many uses of "shit", "bitch", "whore" and "slut".


There is some sight of drug use, including cocaine being snorted through a rolled-up note and sight of powder being cooked up and then injected through a syringe into a woman's arm.


Extremely bloody and sadistic.

45/50 - The short subjects have some funny moments but it also has grisly/nasty moments of violence, just be open-minded when you watch the film, it has some hard-to-watch scenes, but it's often lightened by scenes of humor (for example T for Toilet).

Suggested MPAA Rating: NC17 for extreme violence, explicit sexual content and nudity, pervasive language, and some drug use.
