Sex & Nudity

5/10

Ben and Kelly have just moved in together and act a lot like a newlywed couple, with a great deal of attraction and affection.

In several scenes, Ashley Greene is clad in clothing that displays her impressive cleavage.

The two leads discuss sex.

Sebastian Stan pulls down Ashley Greene'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. This is not the only time they head toward physical affection.

Ashley Greene and Sebastian Stan kiss twice. She playfully slaps his backside.

Ben is shown shirtless.

Preparing to take a shower, Ashley Greene is shown removing her shorts and shirt, leaving herself wearing only underwear. When she steps inside the shower, we see her arms and torso and, from outside the shower, her form through the shower curtain. Afterward, she is clad in panties and a camisole that reveals her cleavage.

Ashley Greene steps into a walk-in closet wearing only panties and a camisole that reveals her cleavage. Making a disturbing discovery, she runs to get her boyfriend, and the rest of the scene plays out with her unencumbered by additional clothing.

Violence & Gore

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.

Profanity

4.5/10

One or two s-words.

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

God's name is misused two or three times.

2/10

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

4/10

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.
