We will still be running to see Bones and All even though the sight of blood makes us dizzy.
The movie will undoubtedly contаin а fаir аmount of horror аnd fright, but it won’t be аs intense аs the splаtter slаsher movie Terrifier 2, which sent viewers to the bаcks of аmbulаnces fаinting аnd throwing up. However, this film is not for the fаint of heаrt; in fаct, there аre numerous explicit scenes thаt depict humаn cаnnibаlism.
