A slight sex reference is made when a husband tells his wife that he's been reading the farmer-sutra.


We see a frightened woman packing her suitcase and instructing her son to hide under a bed, and someone grabs and throws her hard against a wall (we see a blood smear on the wall)

A teenage girl is thrown over a stair railing, crashes on the floor below and then dragged into a basement (we hear her screaming and see her scratching the floor with her fingernails as she is dragged).

A man with a pitchfork stabs a man (off-screen) in the back, then strikes a woman hard in the face with a shovel (she falls to the ground), and raises the pitchfork over a teenage girl, but she kicks him away.

A man is attacked by several large crows that peck and claw at him.

Many large crows surround a farm, they circle in the air and attack a man on the ground, we hear pecking and yelling, and we see the man motionless with blood on his face and shirt.

A teenage boy is hit in the face with a shovel.


3 scatological terms, 2 anatomical terms, 8 mild obscenities, 3 religious exclamations.


A teenage girl explains that she was drunk driving and got into an accident.


There are several frightening scenes of ghosts attacking people. These ghosts are deformed with expressions of terror on their faces.

A scene that features an unseen person attacking and killing members of a family is intense and suspenseful.

Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, disturbing violence and terror
