Sex & Nudity

  • At the beginning of the film, bare breasts are seen in a silhouette through a thin nightgown in an elongated walking sequence.
  • The first sex scene occurs when a woman opens a door on a married couple having sex. The couple are shown thrusting and moaning briefly, until the woman shuts the door.
  • The second scene shows a man roughly picking up a woman as she tries to run upstairs. The man starts kissing her as she then wraps her legs around him. The man starts to thrust and the woman starts groaning as the camera cuts away.
  • A woman's bare breasts are shown when she is stripped by a crowd and beaten to near death, there is nothing sexy about this (see Violence & Gore for more details).
  • A man is shown fully nude when he gets out of bed. His buttocks and his genitals are shown in detail.
  • A man is shown fully nude when he gets out of bed. His buttocks and his pubic hair is shown in detail. A previous review said his genital is shown, that's not true.
  • A woman's bare breast can be seen when she breastfeeds her baby.

Violence & Gore

  • The film comprises scenes of violence with some details depicted. These include scenes where characters are shot fatally.
  • The strongest moment is one where a woman is stripped by a crowd, exposing her bare breasts, before they repeatedly punch her, degrade her, rape her and break her bones. This is shown in full detail and for a prolonged period of time. Very gory and hard to stomach.
  • The film is completely violent and gory throughout, and should not be seen by anybody under the age of 18.
  • A pregnant woman and her husband are assaulted by being sprayed in the face with tear gas.
  • A man's jaw is blown off with a shotgun after attempting to help a pregnant woman. The bloody aftermath is shown on the man's face in full detail.
  • A young man grabs a brass doorknob and bludgeons his brother to death with it in gory detail.
  • A young woman attempts to help a pregnant woman escape her house that has descended into chaos before she is eventually beaten to death by the crowd.
  • A crowd of violent protesters are seen attacking riot police with objects and physical assault as the police are trying to fend off the violent crowd.

Profanity

  • There is infrequent use of very strong language including the words f*ck and c*nt.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Adults are seen socially drinking, and are briefly implied to be intoxicated.
  • An older man smokes, and is told not to do so indoors.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film also features frequent disturbing scenes which include strong details.
  • These include a cannibalism scene; a scene where a blood-filled light bulb explodes; a scene where a woman sets fire to herself and is seen screaming for a prolonged period of time, a scene where someone is clubbed in the head repeatedly by a heavy metal object, and a seen of mass execution where people are shot in the head mercilessly for being atheists.
  • The film is very disturbing from the onset - but especially in the last 45 minutes. During this period you see horrific acts of violence such genital mutilation. It is certainly a very intense film and is quite possibly one of the most violent and horrific films ever made. Suitable for people ages 18 and up. The film is intense, distressing and very emotionally scarring. It is more of a psychologically disturbing horror movie that messes with your head, rather than a jumpscare horror movie. That being said, there are jump scares throughout.
  • Be advised that due to the extremely graphic content, the film absolutely earns its R rating while an NC-17 rating would have also been understandable.
  • If you're religious in anyway and are easily offended then it's probably best not to watch, as a lot of critic reviews have pointed out that this movie appears to be heavily critical of religion in general.
  • One very disturbing moment is when a woman who is cleaning her toilet sees what appears to be blood pooling in the water, as she's trying to flush it a human heart suddenly appears and is promptly flushed down the toilet in bloody detail.

  • A terrified newborn baby is passed among an unruly mob. His neck is seen breaking in close up. His mother arrives to discover the disemboweled baby's corpse, shown in a graphic and disturbing manner. She then turns round to see the unruly mob is eating the flesh and drinking the blood of her baby - a wholly darkly take on the Communion.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film contains a disturbing sex scene that is heavily implied to be marital rape as it is arguable if it's consensual or not. She initially resists her husband's advances by repeatedly telling him no before she eventually reciprocates.
  • The baby scene near the end of the movie is very violent, and may disturb people who has a baby in their family. It is also cannibalistic, too, meaning they drink the blood and eat bits of the baby. This can also offend families, too.
