Very frightening throughout and frequent menace/terror

The film is quite creepy and has an intense scary atmosphere and may be frightening to some.

the climax is very violent and intense

The violence, while not overly graphic, is still explicit in it's depictions and is quite constant and very threatening. It may disturb some viewers. Not a film suitable for persons under 13 years of age.

Recommended Rating: R for disturbing and bloody violent images, terror, some nudity and sexual references, and brief language
