there is repeated mention of animal blood (implied sacrificing), as well as a close-up scene of a horribly brutilised dog (we do not see the death occur but the remains are shown and are extremely graphic).

A character shaves the face and cuts the hair of a man who is comatose. This happens when the main character visits the hospital and enters the comatose man's room to see a girl there. This is a long scene and is shot very close-up.

For the first 20 minutes or so, four friends are hiking in the mountains. One man falls into a hole. He is then at least catatonic after that.

There's one kinda extra graphic gunshot to the head right at the end. Otherwise the blood is relatively minor throughout the film.

Among the things on the cult’s manifesto is that menstruation doesn’t determine gender. The cult is shown as evil, although it’s unclear whether everything on the manifesto is also supposed to be read as such.
