age 18+

Notable unlisted sexuality present. See body for details.

Generally interesting. Very dark. Definitely gory. Just want to point out, since it was missing from the review, that there is a severed .. male genetalia .. shown in one scene; hence my 18+ rating. That wasn't mentioned elsewhere on here or in other guides I have seen. Wouldn't have watched if I had known that.

This title has:

Too much sex

Recommended to watch

Great come back after they went up to the sky to visit another land. Climax of thriller and suspense throughout the come back. Ending is well too. Gruesome and awesome for adults.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
