HEX is a Hong Kong horror film, from 1980, about a woman and her abusive, cheating husband.

Nudity

A lengthy sequence features a naked woman dancing and writhing around on the floor.

There is strong threat and violence during sequences in which characters are chased and tormented by ghosts.

There is some gore when a body is hacked up, resulting in large green gooey spurts.

There is some sexual threat when a woman is attacked by a man who says, "I'll show you a man", before he shoves her against a wall and pulls her top off her shoulders.

A man is briefly seen chopping into a live snake using a blade.
