The Darkness II's Tentacular Executions 

The Darkness II is violent. How violent? It has executions, but it has different categories of them. CataGOREies, if you will. This pair of trailers is part of series showing what you can pull off. Mostly limbs, it seems.

The second is "Sliced". I surmised before watching it that the appendages would be attacking their victims in more of a choppy, stabby action than in the first video. In fact if you'll check under your seat you'll find an envelope. Don't open it just yet. Wait till the blood has settled.
