From the critics
AgeAdd Age Suitability
Frightening or Intense Scenes: A moderate amount of gore in this, some of it's intense. One chapter is based on British horror, and contains fairly intense scenes of self-mutilation. Towards the beginning, a character is shown to be punished, and his face is shown exploding in detail. Another chapter shows a decomposing woman whose insides have stretched to cover the walls of her house.
Sexual Content: There are maybe 3 or 4 short panels of sexual intercourse. It's nothing too graphic, and in 2 of them, the sex is just implied, not even shown.
Sexual Content: Sexually suggestive language and some drawings of women's chests.
