A man is hit on the head with an iron bar, resulting in a deep gash on his face. A second fatal blow with the iron bar follows and blood begins to pool on the floor beneath the victim's head. In other scenes one man is shot with a rifle and other men are impaled on the branches of trees, resulting in bloody injuries.

There is strong threat throughout as a group of men are stalked, and individually attacked and killed by an unseen presence in the forest.

Language

There is infrequent very strong language ('c**t') and frequent strong language ('f**k').

Other issues include moderate verbal sex references.
