Common Sense Note

Parents need to lớn know that this is a reviews of the movie shown in theaters và not the Unrated Special Edition, which is sure to have scarier, raw content. This "based on a true story" horror film, while milder than movies like Saw, is still too scary và disturbing for kids. It"s full of mutilated bodies, bloody scenes, supernatural violence, và medical & autopsy imagery. There are also fairly serious discussions of the challenges facing a teen fighting cancer. One character is a recovering alcoholic who starts drinking again and ends up driving drunk. But the language doesn"t get much stronger than "hell" và "oh my God," & sex và product placement aren"t an issue.

Sexual Content

A woman is in the shower, but nothing sensitive is shown.


Plenty of violence và gore, with extensive depiction of blood, scars, cuts, wounds, và mass graves filled with emaciated, mutilated corpses. Ghosts take the size of mutilated corpses. Close-ups of medical instruments và procedures undertaken in the name of dark magic/sorcery/paranormal experimentation. Supernatural violence as restless spirits shove, push, and batter victims.


Fairly mild, including "Jesus" as an expletive, "good Lord," "oh my God," and "hell."

Social Behavior

No strong/obvious positive messages. The question "Why bởi bad things hapen lớn good people?" is asked. Characters also talk about how "the Lord works in mysterious ways" & frankly discuss how alcohol and alcoholism affect a marriage và a family.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink hard liquor. A recovering alcoholic starts drinking again, driving drunk và frightening his family; he later apologizes, atones, & tries khổng lồ make amends.
