Several bloody scenes.

A woman's scar turns into a bloody, gaping wound.

In one scene, a woman shows photographs of grisly deaths and crime scenes.

The movie is about a mirror that makes you see what it wants you to see. It makes people do something bad, thinking they're doing something else, for example:

A woman accidentally biting into a lightbulb, thinking it was an apple (we see blood coming from her mouth). We see her pull bloody glass shards from her mouth

A young woman kills her boyfriend by stabbing him in the neck with a shard of glass, thinking that the mirror was tricking her.

A young woman is impaled through the neck, killing her. Blood pours out of her mouth.

An image of a pile of bloody teeth is seen beside a pair of pliers.

A woman bites and chews a plate, breaking her teeth. Bloody. The woman is shown later with a mouthful of broken, bloodied teeth.

A man shoots a woman several times, we see the impact of the bullets on her body.

A dog bites a woman.

A woman attempts to choke her young children in several different scenes.

A woman is chained to a wall, where she is kept for an indefinite amount of time; in the passing time she has become disfigured and behaves in an animal-like manner.

A man attempts to pull off a band-aid with a staple remover, severing his fingernail.


About 2/3 uses of fuck.

Name calling (crazy, stupid, sick, cow, whale and cheater.)


A woman drinks wine.


Not for the faint-hearted.

Some demon-ghouls with glowing eyes (as seen on DVD/Blu-Ray cover) appear several times.

Some Bloody scenes.

Scenes with child abuse.

The ending is quite disturbing.

The scene with the ghost under the white sheet is one of the creepiest parts.

15: strong threat, psychological horror, infrequent grisly images.

Rated R for terror, violence, some disturbing images and brief language
