Sex & Nudity

  • A young boy grabs his mother's breast & yells at her for not breastfeeding him.
  • Full frontal female nudity is displayed of a woman covered in blood. When this woman begins to walk, full female back & buttocks nudity is also shown. No male nudity is offered in this movie.

Violence & Gore

  • Demonic possession causes disturbing, sometimes gory deformities on people's faces and bodies throughout the film.
  • A pig on a leash is possessed by an evil spirit and starts screeching, leading it to getting shot directly in the head by a priests's assistant wielding a rifle. It's very graphic as there is blood splattered by the pig after receiving a gunshot .
  • Demon hurts others physically and mentally many times in extreme acts of cruelty.


  • There is some swearing. Even by the priest.
  • Many uses of "f**k" and its derivatives. Mostly used by the demons in their efforts to demoralize the priests and family through disgusting language.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Amorth carries and every now and again drinks whiskey from a hip flask.
  • A teenage woman is briefly seen smoking a cigarette, before being asked to put it out by her mother.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The sequences of exorcism involve quite a bit of otherworldly demonic body horror in which people's bodies become contorted and deformed. The imagery in these scenes will likely be disturbing to the squeamish.
