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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Rated PG-13 for sequences of disturbing violent content and images, and some language.

While never directly discussed, the movie implies the rape/molestation of several young children by a serial killer. These references are subtle enough that younger children likely will not realise what is being discussed.

Violence & Gore

A young girl is strangled by an invisible attacker. Later, she is shown screaming and struggling as she is flung over a cliff. Her body is seen from a great distance.

A woman kills herself by leaping off a cliff. Her body is not seen.


A young boy uses a racial slur. He is immediately corrected by another child, but he mocks the "correct" word.

Several instances of mild swearing throughout.

The movie's entire premise directly relates to the murder of a young child, whose violent death is re-enacted several times. Her limp body is shown floating in the air as she is carried away by an invisible attacker. No details (blood, etc) are shown, but the effect is frightening.

All the "ghosts" in the movie are presented in an eerie, frightening way, although it is soon revealed that their characters are benign and protective.

Adults discuss the murder of several children while a young boy eavesdrops.

Throughout the last portion of the film, a young boy is in peril from a trusted adult who tries to murder him. These scenes show the boy hiding and running from the man in a dramatic manner that may be scary for young viewers. The boy is rescued and the man dies in a fall.
