Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Near the beginning of the movie. Rasputin is dramatically pulled into the portal when it gets destroyed. With the gate is starting to destroyed, there is a Nazi soldier that pulled into the portal and his body is erased, it is very scary.
  • Hellboy's father is killed and the aftermath is very depressing. The secondary villain, Ruprecht is shown without his mechanical armor and mask, we see his scarred and twisted body also his face, it is very scary and disgusting. In the end of the final fight scene, Rasputin is stabbed to death by Hellboy, with a giant monstrous squid-like creature is comes out of his stomach. It's very dark scene and much more scary than the other scenes.
