Featured Animal Action

There is a scene where a video of a sacrificial ritual (involving a goat) is being shown to the jury. In the video, a man hovers over a goat's body and blood is visible on the goat as it lies on the floor. This scene was shot in cuts. A fainting goat was used with a "blood"-spurting knife and fake prop blood. Other animal action consists of a scene where Kevin is walking down a public street in front of a fish market. A dead fish is seen on a table and a man is preparing it for a customer.
