Sex & Nudity


A man and a woman in skin tight suits caress each other in a very sexual way for a virtual motion capture. The woman moves seductively, the man grasps her breasts, and then they start "69ing" through their suits (the woman's face is seen near the man's crotch, as well as the man licking the woman's crotch). After that they are seen moaning and growling, etc. The graphic of them is shown and is two animated demonic figures. It is not very lifelike. From one demon a tentacle that is not unlike a penis is seen thrusting around the female's crotch area.

A fully naked gnome can be seen for a substantial amount of time. His bare butt and erect penis [this is not a real penis, it's a "life-like" prosthetic device] can be see very clearly.

Violence & Gore


A man is stabbed in the neck. Blood spurts out.

A man is shot in the head. Very brief.

A man is shot many times across his body. His body is seen to be quite bloody. Also Brief.

We see the aftermath of a suicide from jumping off a building with two bodies lying in a pool of blood on the ground.

A woman's fingers are bitten off, though it is off screen and we only see blood in the biter's mouth.

To note, all deaths in this film are simulated, and the victims are seen getting up and being okay afterwards.



Three uses of 'fuck'

Two uses of 'shit'


The main character smokes throughout the film.

Some alcohol consumption,


A lot of the film is confusing and unexplained, meaning no one can be sure quite what is about to happen.

A man staggers around acting insane. When he bites of a woman's fingers it is quite sudden.

Without warning a man gets out of a car just to shoot a random man. Very sudden.
