Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A girl's pet turtle gets thrown into a wall; it's seen dead and bloody.
  • Clint gets pushed down a flight of stairs; we see his leg bloody with a bone protruding from it. This is follwed by a prolongued sequence in which his leg gets amputated. The actual cutting is never seen, but slicing sounds are heard and it's briefly seen in shadow.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Much of the movie isn't that bad, but the last 30-35 minutes are rather chaotic and disturbing, particularly the bizzare dream, the turtle's death, the amputation sequence, and the semi-despressing ending.
