  • Stevens is killed in a car crash; we see him bleeding profusely from the neck.
  • Daniel is shot in the neck and slowly bleeds out.
  • Becky is graphically beaten to death with a trinket box; we see her head full of dents and covered in blood after. One of the most graphic scenes in the movie.
  • Grace undergoes a lot of of violence throughout the movie including being shot in the hand, cut across the back, and stabbed in the shoulder.
  • In the end, due to failing to complete a satanic pact, Alex, Tony, Emilie, Fitch, Aunt Helene, Charity, Georgie & Gabe all graphically explode, one by one, with their blood and guts saturating both Grace and the dining room. Played for laughs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The reason for the game ultimately being played is due to a pact with Satan. The family is shown to all be Satan worshippers intent on sacrificing Grace to a demonic entity they believe has provided their wealth.
