injury detail

There are images of gruesome surgical procedures and bloody corpses, including a contorted body with bone protruding from the neck.

violence

We see several arms being snapped so that bone sticks through the victims' flesh. There are grisly stabbings and slashings with blades, creating spurts and sprays of blood. There is also a strong scene of domestic abuse in which a man strikes his heavily pregnant partner so that her head slams against a wall.

flashing/flicking lights

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.


There are scenes of strong and sustained horror throughout, including ‘jump scare’ moments, as people are attacked and killed by a figure with a deformed face. There is use of strong language (‘f**k’, ‘motherf**ker’). There are references to miscarriage, including a moderately upsetting scene in which a woman mourns her late term miscarriage. Another scene features non-graphic verbal references to a teenager having been raped, resulting in pregnancy.
