A husband and wife are shown in bed together and it cuts to later and they are both naked but only shoulders up can be seen. It is implied they had sex.


No blood & gore at all, although violence is mentioned

A door slams shut in front of a woman's face, we see that it may have bruised her nose

A woman attacks a child thinking it was someone else.


Some usages of "Hell" and "damn". But aside from that, none.


Throughout, the mother unaccountably closes and locks doors before opening another one. Her children are also locked in, even when she is in the next room.

A blood-curdling scream, apparently from a nightmare.

We hear Victor's voice as Anne turns her head away. We then see a hand touch his face and hear him scream.

An album contains photographs of dead adults and children. These are real photographs.

A woman sees that an old woman is inhabiting the body of her daughter. This scene is probably the scariest in the whole movie.

A woman goes into a room filled with sheet-covered furniture, becomes spooked and reacts wildly.

The mother realized that she went crazy and smothered her children to death, then shot herself. They have been ghosts the whole time, and "the intruders" were actually living people.
