The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

*We see the fully nude buttocks of a male at the beginning of the movie.

*A couple have sex in a car. We see her breasts and a lot of her body as she is undressed. The scene does not last long, however.

Violence & Gore

Mild scenes.

*Brief, un-clear footage of people burning in a hotel room fire.

*A boy is almost drowned after he is thrown into a pool with a weight stuck in his backpack.

*Another mans tie gets hooked around the spinning axle of a lathe, his head gets pulled down, and the sharp point of the tail-stock comes towards his head. The machine is stopped before the point reaches his head.

*Several people are vaporized after being hit with electric bolts from a guitar.

*A head blows up, however, no gore or graphic footage is scene, we only see sparks fly out.

*A woman is grabbed by the neck and pulled out of a TV, where her miniaturized body crumbles. (Shown mostly in shadows)

*A boy is electrocuted after plunging a crowbar into a fuse box. He does not die, however.

*Car is driven off of a bridge at the end of the movie, however none of the characters are harmed in the scene.


Mild profanity.

"F***", "S***", "B****", and Damnit can be heard throughout the movie, but never to an extensive level.


*The "television grab" scenes may seem intense to some, however, they are done in a comical way.

*The ending finale with all of the dance attendees being electrocuted and vaporized by the electric volts may be frightening to younger audiences.

*The head blowing up might seem frightening.

*The appearance of Sammi Curr is decrepit and some may find it creepy.

*When Sammi speaks beyond the grave through the speakers, younger viewers may find that scary.
