The Scottish play is just as dark and twisted as we imagined it when brought to the screen.

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star in the latest film adaptation of the Shakespeare classic, and there are plots both fair and foul about. With all the deception and betrayal, plotting witches and wives, and even what looks like to be killing for sport front and center, we’re watching the full display of their chaotic and violent lives as the Macbeths descend into madness.

Both of them will have blood on their hands, that’s for sure.

Macbeth comes out in the U.K. Oct. 2.
