Men are slashed across the throat and chest. Characters are in constant peril. Snakes are often shown and one is cut open to remove a blood-covered object. Skeletons are seen.

Sexual Content: A close-up of a woman’s cleavage is shown. Females wear skimpy costumes. A few sexual references are heard, including a veiled remark about male anatomy.
