 – A man and a woman kiss passionately, the woman removes part of her clothing (we see her bare shoulders) and the man pushes her back onto a bed and then climbs on top of her (sex is implied).

 A couple of club scenes show women wearing skimpy outfits (we see breasts with nipples covered by pasties, cleavage, bare buttocks and abdomens) dancing around poles and gyrating on a stage with men cheering and placing bills in their costumes. In a blurry scene we see a man fall back onto a bed (presumably unconscious) with a woman standing nearby and it is possible that she is nude (we see a flesh- toned form without details). A scene shows two young girls tied to bed frames with a man standing over them and it is implied that he is abusing them (most likely sexually).

We see a large neon sign that reads, “XXX.” A man tells another man, “You don’t know where she’s been,” about a woman the other man has been kissing. A woman talks about men’s “wandering hands.”

 - A long, sharp, metal implement is shoved into a man's eye (he is not sedated) and he screams and then goes silent (we see a lot of blood pour down his face); a nail is pounded into the man's temple (we hear the tapping but do not see the act).
 A man is shot in the head and blood splatters (we see this twice). A man is stabbed in the neck with a pen and we see blood and hear him gurgling before he falls into a deep shaft. A man and woman hold guns on each other and one is shot in the head (blood splatters and pools under the body). A man is shot in the chest twice (blood splatters on a wall). Two bodies are thrown in a deep ventilation shaft and a woman holds a bloody severed finger in a handkerchief. A man picks something bloody out of a garbage bin (not clear what it is). A woman cuts her thumb with a knife and we see blood dripping on a counter.
 A woman straddles a man strapped to a bed, places a cloth over his mouth and she holds a scalpel and says that she needs a "small sample"; the scene ends as the man yells. A few flashback sequences show people being beaten and presumably murdered; a man is shown with a plastic bag being placed over his head, two men are shot in the head (blood splatters and sprays), and a couple of men are beaten (one is struck with a crow bar and we hear a crunch). A man pours gasoline outside an apartment door and lights the fuel with a cigarette liter (we see flames erupt inside and a woman helps two children out through a window but the woman dies in the blaze (we do not see the body). A man hits another man in the face with a gun (we see blood on the wound). A man is pushed in front of a speeding train (we do not see him struck or the aftermath).

A man with a knife threatens another man. A man loads a handgun with one bullet and pulls the trigger at another man (the gun does not fire), who turns around in disbelief.
 A scene shows two young girls tied to bed frames with a man standing over them and it is implied that he is abusing them (most likely sexually). A man is shown strapped into a chair and he has a bruised and cut face. A woman stands on the edge of what seems to be a never ending ventilation shaft and nearly falls in (a man pulls her back). A man steps toward a deep shaft and pulls back just before falling in. A woman shoves a man near a deep shaft and pulls him back before he loses his balance and falls in.
 A man smacks another man on the back of the head as the second man shaves with a straight razor (he does not cut himself but he yells at the man for hitting him). A man yells at another man. A doctor smokes a cigarette in his office as he tells a patient that he has a terminal illness. A man threatens another man saying, "Your gonna get a clip." A man threatens another man, "I'll snap your neck." A man threatens to murder another man's family. A distorted voice on a telephone tells a man to, "Kill someone for me." A distorted voice tells a man to kill someone. A woman tells a man that someone will shoot a hole in his face. A man tells a murderer to deliver the victim's ID papers and trigger finger as proof of the deed. A man taunts a woman about being a "cutter," and that she had an absent father and was molested by priests. A woman says that her mother died in a house fire and we see a flashback to flames in a room. A woman tells someone in a confessional, "I'll have them dead at your feet." The name of a diner is "End of the Line Café." A woman says, "We're all dying." A woman tells a man to, "rape, smite and pillage." A man and a woman discuss suicide and methods of ending one's life (like slamming one's head onto a pencil, throwing oneself in front of a train, etc.). A man and a woman talk about the man's "immortal soul" and a woman talks about living a "feral existence." A man coughs violently in a few scenes and we hear that he is terminally ill. A man says he will "cough his spleen out through his nose."
 A man pulls a denture out of his mouth and we see some saliva. A man peals pieces of fake skin off his face (no blood is shown). A man throws a cup into a sink from a distance, startling another man. A man tears up a jigsaw puzzle angrily and knocks chess pieces off a board in a fit of rage. A man yells and throws dishes off a counter. Two men argue in a couple of scenes. A man speaks to another man in a demeaning manner in several scenes.
 A few scenes show individuals walking through dark hallways in an abandoned train terminal. A woman's stockings have a snake pattern on them. A man's shirt looks as though it is blood-stained, but it could be a pattern with the color of blood because we do not see him being injured. A man walks with a limp through most of the movie.

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.
