Captive women are subjected to verbal sexual threats. Photographs which catalogue historical murders feature nudity and suggest a sexualised aspect to the violent deaths.
There are scenes of sustained threat. Dead bodies are dismembered.
Strong violence includes heavy beatings, shootings, stabbings and a neck break. Some passages of violence - for example, the drawn out electrocution of a man, the severing of a man's Achilles tendon and a large knife wound being stamped on - have a sadistic edge, with perpetrators relishing their actions. There is extensive bloodshed and gory injury detail in the aftermath of violent events.
There is infrequent very strong language ('c**t') and more frequent uses of strong language ('f**k'). There are moderate sex references.
