VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - In two flashback scenes, gunfire is exchanged in a battle; we see people being shot (some bloody holes in clothing are visible) and a soldier with blood splattered on his face. In a dream sequence, a man hits another in the back with a hammer, slits him with a knife (blood splatters on the man's face) and then eats his bloody flesh. A man snaps another's neck (we hear a crunching noise) and slits another's throat (lots of blood squirts on a window and from his neck). A couple of men are stabbed (twice we see the knife sticking out of their bodies and once we hear squishy noises as the knife is removed). A man throws a hatchet into a man's back and a man throws a knife into a man's chest. Two men are shot (one of them dies). We hear a thump, see a man hit the ground, and then see a close-up of blood running down his face. We see and hear a man slice another's stomach; the man spits up blood and we see blood seeping from the wound. We hear a slicing noise (it's implied that a man has been stabbed), then see a man's feet as he's being dragged out of a building. A bloody man falls into a hole and hangs by his feet in some branches; blood pours out of his mouth and he briefly chokes another man before dying. Two very bloody men are caught in a large snare trap and we see them die. Two wounded men fall off a cliff. A man falls down a rocky hill and gets bloody cuts on his face and torso (we later see him with a bloody bandage wrapped around his stomach). A man jumps off a cliff and falls through many tree branches, rolls down a hill (he runs into a bloody man and they roll together for awhile) and then falls into a hole (he has bloody cuts all over his face). A man cuts a man's hand with a knife and we see the bloody wound. A man pulls a tree branch out of his shin (we see the bloody wound and hear squishy noises as he removes it). We see a close-up of two men's extremely bloody faces and then see blood pouring from their mouths onto the ground. We see a pile of many extremely bloody corpses; on the bottom of the pile, a man who's still alive -- and is covered in blood dripping from the other bodies -- crawls out. Blood drops on a woman's face; we then see a bloody corpse on a roof above her. We see several bloody skeletons, several bloody corpses with blood running from their mouths, a skull with blood-soaked hair and several bloody, decapitated horses. We see a man hitting a bloody corpse with a hatchet (it looks like the corpse's arm is missing) and it's implied that several men in a later scene eat the flesh. We see a man slice a corpse's leg (we hear lots of squishy noises) and it's implied that the man eats the corpse's flesh. We see a man holding a few logs with a bloody arm on top. A man has a cross painted in blood on his forehead. During an extended fight scene, men hit each other repeatedly with logs, stab each other with knives and a pitchfork and head-butt and choke each other (they get very bloody). A man punches another and pushes him out of his chair. We see a crude drawing of a man with big teeth eating a woman (drops of blood surround the man). We see a man vomit and hear another vomit.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
