* CaliforniaDoubling: Though the story is set in Morocco and the US, nearly everything was shot on location in Spain.

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a fairly hard 6, because of the chef's barely-noticeable severed arm, a few bloodless/goreless beheadings (unless you count the blood on the sword used), several non-spurting blood squibs, a severed head hanging by the wrecked ship, and a disembodied tongue.
