No nudity.

A woman asks a man if he is homosexual. They are later seen asleep together.

Three men on a boat are stabbed to death. We only see the first death in full view (impaling by cutlasses).

A man is stabbed in the neck briefly by a pirate hook. The camera quickly cuts away, and luckily (thanks to the quick editing), we see no blood/gore.

A brief shot of a man turning around and being beheaded by a ghost - we see the ghost swing his sword and the picture blacks out before contact, with a loud slicing sound.

1 "s" word and other mild language.

Some smoking is shown.

Some moments of tension and suspense.

Ghosts break windows, reaching in for people - one grabs a woman by the hair and attempts to pull her out.

The ghosts are later shown with glowing red eyes.
