Director Neil Marshall’s new take on Hellboy was given an R18+ rating in Australia, the decision was appealed, and the rating stood regardless.

It has received the rating for “High impact violence, blood and gore”, and the clip below offers plenty of examples of all three things.

Likely needless to say, this vision is violent, bloody, gory and also requires a LANGUAGE WARNING.

Hellboy opens in Australian cinemas on April 11.
