The two leads discuss sex.

A man pulls down a woman's button-down shirt to give her a back rub, but leaves her bikini top in place. Playful conversation suggests that this might lead to intimacy.

Preparing to take a shower, a woman is shown removing her shorts and shirt, leaving herself wearing only underwear. When she steps inside the shower, her form through the shower curtain is shown. Afterwards, she is seen for an extended scene wearing only panties and a camisole that reveals her cleavage.

Spine-tingling jump scenes involving the spiritual entity's assault of Ben and Kelly (and others) all put possess this film.

A couple of creepier examples: An ashen female form (resembling Kelly) crawls out of a mirror toward her. Grimy, gray fingers wrap around her and yank her out of a tent.

Ben sustains a slight wound, leaving a bit of blood on him and on a ceiling.

All of the mains die.

In two instances, the people are just gone, as if yanked instantly into a black fog.

In the other two cases, victims are trapped momentarily between this world and that one before being pulled through.

One guy's mouth is stretched unnaturally wide before he goes through.

The entity pulls a bed sheet over Kelly's head, after which it constricts, vacuum-like, around her and nearly suffocates her.

The dog in the pantry simply lies down and dies.


One or two s-words.

One use of "b_tch," two of "d_mn" and four or five of "h_ll."


Ben, Kelly and Patrick all drink beer in the couple's home.


Spine-tingling jump scenes involving the spiritual entity's assault of Ben and Kelly (and others) all put possess this film.

Scary stuff like noises, lights, shadowy figures, and unseen forces attacking the characters than actual blood.

Rated PG-13 for terror/frightening images and some sensuality
