Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • About midway through the movie, Alan summons a hunter who chases after him and repeatedly tries to shoot him. At one point, he tries to shoot Alan in the head, but misses.
  • There is a scene which involves many spiders crawling all over the attic. When the kids use the board game, the animals come out and some of their appearances are quite freaky.
  • When the game starts near the beginning of the movie, young Alan is slowly sucked into the game (using CGI, of course). The appearance of him screaming and slithering into the game is quite frightening, and scary music plays at the same time. Right after this, young Sarah screams and runs out of the house in terror as dozens of bats begin chirping loudly and emerge from the fireplace.
  • Alan drives a police car through a grocery store, destroying it in the process. Eventually, an entire shelf of paint cans falls on Van Pelt (this is played for comedic effect).
  • A stampede chases Alan, Sarah, Judy and Peter throw the house, but they all leap out of the path at the last second.
  • In a scene, Alan and Sarah play the game and Alan is trapped inside the jungle, with bats flying and Sarah running away, afraid. 26 years later, Alan is set free.
  • Scenes involving the bats, lions, huge mosquitos, monkeys, dangerous flowers, elephants, spiders, an obsessed hunter and crocodiles.

Violence & Gore

  • After Alan says "Jumanji", Van Pelt attempts to shoot him. Sarah runs in front of Alan to shield him from the bullet only for it and everything else to be pulled back into the game, saving both of them.
  • In one scene Petter roles the Dice and summons a lion. It's tail wags across a piano playing a brief note of creepy music. It chases him and Jullie down the stairs nimbly but it traped in a bedroom by Alan Parrish who was summoned on the same role.
  • Judy is hit in the neck by a poisonous flower, and is seen lying motionless on the floor. She is the only one who is presumably killed in the movie.
