Sex & Nudity

Rated Version 1/10

Unrated Version 2\10

During the start of the first scene, wife kissed her husband doing the plumbing.


A woman is dressed in a revealing tank top in one scene. No sex or references in this movie.

Violence & Gore

Both versions: 8/10 (IMO)

There is no gore in this movie, on-screen violence is shown. RATED

There is blood in the Unrated Version

A woman has her tongue ripped out by a ventriloquist doll possessed by a ghost This scene is frightening and could be a bit disturbing to younger viewers (Some blood is shown on the floor)

An elderly man tells a story a woman being forced to scream, then her tongue being cut out. flashbacks are shown of a woman screaming but the "cutting" isn't shown.

An elderly man is shown with a large wooden pipe in his back, instead of his spine, and what looks like, his whole upper region is hollowed out, This scene is slightly disturbing.

Many people have their tongues ripped out. In both rated and unrated it's shown off-screen or implied.


Four uses of hell

One use of dick

One incomplete use the "F" word

A few scenes where we see a character smoking cigars.


Several Jump scenes such as:

An elderly man turns around to find Mary Shaw staring back at him

Mary Shaw Suddenly appears inside a mirror

A scene including a ventriloquist doll that is a clown will scare younger viewers

The thought of ventriloquist dolls moving by their selves may scare people

During a flash back, in one of Mary Shaw's shows, a young boy says that he can see her lips moving when the doll is talking, she proves him wrong by having her and the doll talk at the same time, soon after the boy disappeared, going forward in time while Jamie's behind the stage with here 101 dolls, he discovers the boys corpse hanging on a marionette in late stages of decomposition.

A young man discovers that there is someone behind him, when he turns, a ghost whispers the words "Who's the dummy now?" He then screams and the screen cuts to black.

A fairly tame horror film with minimal violence and relies far more on scares than graphic material, especially compared to other horror films today. MUCH less gory/violent than Wan's other works (Saw). Best for mature 11 year olds and up.
