A man gets drunk and in this state of mind beats a pregnant woman. She's slapped twice and then punched, dropping to the ground unconscious. This apparently sobers up the man.

It's hard to discern if it's excessive or tame, so if you're really concerned, I'll help you decide.

[VAGUE SPOILERS FOR DESCRIPTION OF ALL DEATHS IN THE MOVIE]

I will not be naming the characters or detailing how they obtained their injuries. It won't ruin the movie either. I promise.

In order of appearance:

- We see one very brief closeup of vague "gore" on an infant. Literally looks like nothing. It's evoking gore more than showing it.

- We see character/s looking down at a body but we aren't shown it. We do see one of them pick up a severed ear that is attached to something else. The body is later described and visually shown in a cartoon drawing (non-graphic, literally stick figure).

- We see a character have their lip tear off. It's not convincing but it is graphic.

- We see the arm of someone who has been burned alive sticking up in the air as character/s look down at it. Nothing else is shown of the body.

- A character is shot by a gun in one of their extremities. We see the medium-sized wound being given first aid.

- The most graphic is a character who has their brain exposed in a severe injury. They happily play with it and they soon die. The way they react is more disturbing than the gore, in my opinion.

- The (dead) body of the previous character is accidentally shot. We briefly see new blood splatter on their face but no new injuries are visible.

- A character walks into barbed wire. It makes light contact with their temple. Small injury, it's very nonchalant.

- We see a character's face become covered with blood by an offscreen body above them. We do not see the body, just the blood raining down from it.
