SPAWN: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT is a fantasy action thriller, from 1997, in which an elite mercenary comes back from Hell as a soldier serving the Devil.

Violence

Moderate violence includes a scene in which a man is set alight. There is some detail of his arm and face burning. Other scenes of violence include undetailed shootings and stabbings with bladed weapons, which result in brief injury detail.

Sex

Sex references include a scene in which a clown says "I have more tricks than your local hooker". In another scene, a man tells a woman that he can smell that she isn't wearing any panties.
