  • A woman sees Calver Weems get hit on the head and she hysterically and repeatedly screams, "Murder!"
  • The haunted house scene may be scary to younger children. There is a scene in the haunted house where a picture of a woman is stabbed in the throat with garden shears. Blood is shown. (This is the only scene with blood.)
