LORDS OF CHAOS is a British-Swedish thriller, based on real events, in which the members of a Norwegian death metal band perform a series of increasingly shocking publicity stunts.

Violence

There are sustained scenes of bloody violence in which people are stabbed repeatedly to death. There is a homophobic attack on a man. In other scenes we see brief extracts from horror films featuring gory but dated practical effects including evisceration, limbs being severed and skin being peeled from a man's face. There are also bloody scenes of self-harm.

Suicide

There is a gory and prolonged scene of suicide.

Scenes of strong sex feature breast and rear nudity and thrusting detail. There is frequent use of strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k', 'c**ksucker') in addition to infrequent use of the discriminatory term 'faggot'; the work as a whole does not endorse discrimination. In other scenes, people are shown setting churches on fire, burning Bibles and desecrating gravestones.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
