- The murders, which are not only quite visceral and explicit, but are prone to lingering. It's no surprise therefore that this film had such a hard time with the BBFC. In more detail:
- Nurse Thelma is skewered through the temple with a massive drill (pictured).
- Emily is shoved into an oven, where her face is burned off in graphic detail before Mikos finally finishes her off by stabbing her in the neck with a pair of scissors.
- Peggy is stabbed to death with a pickaxe a la My Bloody Valentine.
- An unnamed machine shop owner takes a circular saw to the forehead courtesy of Mikos. Reportedly, Joe D'Amato used an actual cadaver for the close-up shots in that scene.
- Mikos in general. A Nigh Invulnerable Ax-Crazy psychopath built like a professional athlete with accelerated healing and an immunity of bullets who will stop at nothing to kill you, often while pulling off◊ one hell of a Nightmare Face.
