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

We see a brief view of what appeared to be The Lovers tarot card that shows drawings of a fully nude woman and man. The woman's bare breasts and crotch are seen, as is the man's penis, but none of that is photo realistic.

Jim finds a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition magazine in Michael's room. A women in her swimsuit, with some cleavage is visible, but nothing very explicit.

Violence & Gore

We see various ghosts, one of whom fires a pistol while another fires a crossbow where the arrow lands in another ghost's forehead rather than the apple on top of it (being a ghost, he's no worse for the wear).

Profanity

"Hell" and "crap" are each said 3 times whereas "damn" and "ass" are said twice. Deviations of "God" are used twice.

Some of Jim's clients have tropical drinks and offer to buy him one. When he asks for ginger ale, one says that's not a drink and orders three Volcanoes for them.

Sara reacts to poison given to her by a ghost and appears to die (Jim and their kids see that). A ghostly ball of spiritual energy then goes into her body and lifts her up into some white light (could be scary to younger kids), eventually resurrecting her. Skeletons and dead bodies come to life and try to attack Jim & Megan. (Would be scary to most young [under 8] kids.) Sara is looking down an empty hallway, and Ramsey pops up behind her, could make some jump. towards the end of the movie, Ramsley becomes Irritated. then he says "damn you, damn you all to hell" and as he says "hell", his eyes very suddenly turn ice white and he falls into a fiery pit. this may disturb younger viewers. Jim drops a candle light looks up at the mirror and sees his face in skeletal form may frighten young children.
