Bare-breasted women are beaten, dunked in water and tortured with weights in extended scenes of punishment. It is implied that a woman also has chilli peppers and a heated poker pushed inside as punishment for sex with a monk. There are also verbal references to women being raped. A man verbally coerces his sister into a sexual relationship with him.
Several characters are decapitated, resulting in blood spurts from the neck wounds. A woman is pulled apart by horses and several women are stabbed in the chest and stomach while they are being crucified.
There is some moderate bad language with uses of 'bitch' and milder language includes 'bastard', 'damn' and 'hell'. There is occasional natural nudity as women bathe in shared bath houses.
