There is strong supernatural threat, in which a woman and her daughter are haunted by a demonic entity. There are jump scares, as well as scenes featuring hooded monks, who are known to have mutilated a woman after she gave birth. In one particular sequence, a woman is laid out on a table surrounded by monks, one of whom threatens her with a meat cleaver.
There are scenes containing blood in the aftermath of violence, including a woman whose throat has been slit, as well as a sequence in which a man repeatedly hacks at a woman's body, off-screen, with blood spraying up onto his face.
A man and woman have loud, thrusty sex against a wall.
There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as scenes of moderate violence. A man is found hanging by the neck, his clothes and surroundings bloodied. There is breast and female pubic nudity in the form of drawings from a book, detailing religious punishments.
