This is not the gorefest it may sound like. The movie is extremely tame on violence, most of it is just off screen. And you barely see any dead body. Also don’t think this gonna jump right into the action, it builds up a lot of tension before crap gets real. So that’s probably what you need to know before going in. Cause then you can truly appreciate this masterpiece!
