THE DEAD LANDS is a Maori language action film about a young man who forges an alliance with a mysterious warrior in order to avenge the death of his father.

Violence

Fight sequences feature heavy blows to the head and body with tribal weapons, as well as hand-to-hand combat. There is sight of stabbings and blood spurts. A man's throat is cut and a huge blood spurt sprays onto other characters. There is a scene in which a man hacks at the arm of a dead body.

In a ritual, a character defecates on a human skull and then rubs in the faeces with his hand before licking it.
