PRIEST is a fantasy action horror film, set in a post-apocalyptic world, about a former warrior priest who sets off to destory a horde of vampires after his family are attacked.

Violence

There are frequent action sequences which features moderate fantasy violence that includes the use of guns and bladed weapons. There are some occassional gory moments including sight of a bloody neck as a vampire gets slashed with a meat cleaver, and also sight of a man's bloody face as vampires feed on him. There is also an implied scene of torture when a character is stabbed in the leg, with brief sight of the knife being twisted, but there is no sustained focus on this.

Threat

There are scenes of moderate threat, including a scene in which a family is attacked in their home by a horde of vampires, but the threat is never sustained.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms.
