I think its not that bad

This title has:

Too much violence
age 18+

Horribly violent and full of F-bombs

Some of the most graphic violence and abhorrent behavior that can be thought up…..” I know what humans taste like… and that babies taste best”…. Horribly dark premise to the movie and an immense amount of foul language through out.

This title has:

Too much violence
